    Default Possible Features To Find In OpenGL 5.0

    Phoronix: Possible Features To Find In OpenGL 5.0

    While OpenGL 5.0 hasn't been released yet, there's already much speculation what the future holds for OpenGL as more companies look at optimizing its performance and 3D capabilities...

    So far I find the ads acceptable. They don't flash or move or blink or produce sound. Though flash is always off because it is a necessary evil for the time being. If every website acted like this I wouldn't need an adblocker.

    If this will require specific hardware to use then I'm going to wait for the 2nd generation of hardware that will support it (because the 2nd will help kink out the bugs from the 1st)

    I heard Nvidia is going to support part of DirectX 12 starting from the GTX 500 series. So I hope at least the performance part of OpenGL 5 / DX12 will be supported by "current" hardware.

    I heard GL 5 will support the Turbo Mode (TM) extension, once you toggle it on (glSetTurboMode(true)) OpenGL starts running faster and consuming less CPU.

    My mind while reading this article:
    1st paragraph: "Well, it's a reminder of the title of the article, just in case I forget it already."
    2nd paragraph: "Talking more about other techonologies than about those features the title suggests I'm supposed to find in the article."
    3rd paragraph: "Oh look, a link to the so said features!"

    I didn't like this article. I feel while reading that I'm not getting what the title suggests, too many irrelevant information and bad quality. I had the impression you didn't know what to write.

    You could have listed the most important features found in the document, as well as the ones that it's sure we will find or those that will not. Maybe some developers reaction (if any), etc.

    My 2 cents.
