    About Nvidia hardware supporting OpenGL 3.0:
    All talk, no links!

    Mount Evans will require DirectX 10 supporting hardware, with Longs Peak targeting the SM3.0-supporting class of DX9 parts out there. There's a utility library to come that's a bit like GLU, and the entire OpenGL 3 process should calm down very soon so the ARB can finalise everything and look to shipping Mount Evans.

    I hope you come up with better sources than mine.

      Considering that 3.0 is Longs Peak and Not Mt. Evans, pretty much every card out there capable of DirectX 9, Shader Model 3.0, will have the ability of supporting a OpenGL 3.0 API driver- your link says as much. This translates into 3.0 support for the following NVidia parts:


      NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GTX
      NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GT
      NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX
      NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GT
      NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GT
      NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT
      NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra
      NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT
      NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GS
      NVIDIA GeForce 6800
      NVIDIA GeForce 6800 XT
      NVIDIA GeForce 6800 LE
      NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT
      NVIDIA GeForce 6600
      NVIDIA GeForce 6600 LE
      NVIDIA GeForce Go 7800 GTX

      I can point to comparable ATI parts, but since they're going to wait until they get the new codebase drivers better gelled to release a Longs Peak capable driver, I won't comment on those- yet.
