    Phoronix: Intel's Mesa Driver Is OpenGL 4.6 Compliant, But Won't Be Mainline For A While

    As noted when covering the news yesterday of Khronos launching the OpenGL 4.6 Adopters Program, the NVIDIA proprietary driver and Intel's open-source Linux driver are the first OpenGL drivers considered 4.6 compliant. But on the Intel Linux side, the OpenGL 4.6 work has yet to be all upstreamed into Mesa...

          Native games for now dont use opengl 4.6, however cemu 1.10f and upper use opengl 4.6 (avalaible on nvidia for now)

            But do they need SPIRV? Because they can just ask for the extensions they need instead of asking for full 4.6, and since i965 and radeonSI both have all 4.6 extensions except SPIRV, then it should work fine...
