Intel Sandy Bridge Now Has OpenGL ES 3.0
Intel's latest-generation "Ivy Bridge" processors with integrated graphics have already had OpenGL ES 3.0 support when using Mesa 9.1 with recent Linux kernel releases, but now the "Sandy Bridge" processors will advertise OpenGL ES 3.0 support too.
It was announced earlier this month that Intel Ivy Bridge on its latest Linux graphics stack is one of the first OpenGL ES 3.0 conformant products on the market. OpenGL ES 3.0 is one of the exciting features to Mesa 9.1 after the mobile/embedded OpenGL specification update was unveiled by the Khronos Group last August.
All of the necessary GLES 3.0 extensions for Sandy Bridge support have already been implemented but with this Mesa Git commit on Friday, OpenGL ES 3.0 is now being officially advertised. Intel will also be submitted their results to the Khronos Group for certifying Sandy Bridge products as being conformant to the new standard. "i965: Enable OpenGL ES 3.0 on Sandy Bridge."
