    Yeah, the i5 2500K is Sandybridge which can do GL 3.3. Ivybridge can do GL 4.
    It's confusing, even to Intel developers.

    L4D is a good game... but I can't wait for CS:GO to be released on Linux. Seriously.

    Yup, because the person actually responsible for the change, telling you it was for Wine, right above your post, must be wrong. After all, this is The Internet.

    Good luck fixing/improving your software then.
