    Phoronix: OpenGL 3.0 Announced, Expected Soon

    This past week at Siggraph 2007 the Khronos Group had announced OpenGL 3.0, which was previously known as OpenGL Longs Peak. The OpenGL 3.0 specification should be finalized by the end of August and may become publicly available in late September.

    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.

    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.

    Still, excellent site!

    I believe full well in that statement

    I wish the new driver will not drop support for my AGP Radeon 9600 256MB (RV350).

    Also, if it would support OpenGL 3.0, at least in part, they would sound like very good drivers.

    OpenGL 3.0 (Longs Peak) is more or less OpenGL 2.1 under the new object model. Around new year there'll be a new release (Mt Evans) that'll require G80 or R600-series, adding geometry shader support and other stuff.
