    Well, if you have an OpenGL 4.4 app I suggest you use NVidia's driver.
    But then you need a Nvidia graphics card.
    The Nvidia driver doesn't work on AMD cards.

      Which is exactly why there are no OpenGL 4.4 apps.

        Once the drivers are done, the apps will come. ATI is shooting themselves in the foot again. Oh wait, they have already shot it for years now, so this I guess is normal.

            You seem to be confused.

            Is ATI shooting themselves in the foot by not providing drivers? Or will the apps not come until the drivers are provided? Make up your mind.

            Hint: they won't come until the drivers are ready. Which means ATI can take as long as they want.

              ATI is shooting themselves in the foot by not providing drivers. The programs utilizing this will come soon, since Nvidia supports it. Whether ATI supports it or not will not matter. Who will be affected? ATI customers.

                We'll see. How many OpenGL 4.3 programs are there? It took AMD more than a year to support that, and it didn't seem to hurt them at all.

                  memory leaks are excruciating in xbmc. When I use the 13.6_beta the hdmi audio distortion is present. This driver work very well with vlc.
