GeForce ForceWare 190.56 XP | Win 7 | Vista
NVIDIA has a new beta driver set available from their developer zone. This release adds support for OpenGL 3.0
You will need one of the following graphics cards to get access to the OpenGL 3.2 and GLSL 1.50 functionality:
- Quadro FX 370, 570, 1700, 3700, 4600, 4700x2, 4800, 5600, 5800, Quadro VX200, Quadro CX
- GeForce 8000 series or higher; Geforce G100, GT120, 130, 220, GTS 150, Geforce GTS 250, GeForce GTX 260, 280, 285 and 295, any ION based products.
- Quadro FX 360M, 370M, 570M, 770M, 1600M, 1700M, 2700M, 3600M, 3700M
- GeForce 8000 series or higher
This driver supports all of OpenGL 3.2 and GLSL 1.50, except for the following:
- Geometry shaders as part of the core. You can use the ARB_geometry_shader extension instead
- glXCreateContextAttribsARB() does not yet support the GLX_CONTEXT_PROFILE_MASK_ARB attribute value. In order to create a Core profile context, call glXCreateContextAttribsARB(), request OpenGL 3.2 as the version, and leave the GLX_CONTEXT_PROFILE_MASK_ARB attribute out. In order to create an OpenGL 3.2 Compatibility profile context, call the "old" glXCreateContext() entrypoint. Note: wglCreateContextAttribsARB() does support WGL_CONTEXT_PROFILE_MASK_ARB.
We have a discussion thread open on these drivers right here.
