    Phoronix: OpenGL Gets Faster With OS X 10.9 Mavericks

    Beyond Apple's forthcoming OS X 10.9 "Mavericks" release finally bring OpenGL 4.0 support to Apple hardware, there's also GL performance improvements to make OS X more competitive with other operating systems for gaming...

    IIRC Mavericks supports up to GL 4.1 on supported hw, which is still a shame since Apple has plenty of resources to support the latest GL specs.

      does windows have built in opengl support (like with direct x) or the opengl functionality comes with the driver?

        Windows has a built-in OpenGL 1.1 software emulator (and a slow one at that).

          Mesa

          Too bad Apple doesn't use Mesa.
          Else they could contribute back to Mesa.

              AFAIK Windows devs purged OpenGL driver from their OS You have to install drivers to get OpenGL support in Windows

                It doesn't matter, because they're years behind Linux which currently supports OpenGL 4.3 with proprietary drivers. They could speed up mesa development, so everyone would benefit.
