    Come on Michael, we all know it will: GL 4.2 is almost done for Intel.

    AMD: X1950XTX, HD3870, HD5870
    Intel: GMA45, HD3000 (Core i5 2500K)

      Yep, that sounds too pessimistic. I'm expecting OpenGL 4.5 for Intel in 2016.

          Why is Intel so eager to reach full OpenGL ES compliance and not so much in terms of regular OpenGL? Is it to try to enter the smartphone market again?

            they are still in the mobile market again, in tablets. Their atom processors are in quite a few tablets, they have new ones coming out next year too. OpenGL ES 3.1/3.2 is therefore very important to them. OpenGL 4.x support isn't that important to them as gamers that use opengl are using linux. Linux gamers won't be using intel graphics, they will use nvidia.

              I think Intel is eager to replace their proprietary android drivers with the OSS stack.

                Yes, but those run Windows or Android where there are already closed source drivers I think. I don't get the need to reach full OpenGL ES compliance on plain ol' linux (not that there's anything wrong with that).
