    Phoronix: Glxinfo Gets Updated With OpenGL 4.6 Support, More vRAM Reporting

    The glxinfo utility is handy for Linux users in checking on their OpenGL driver in use by their system and related information. But it's not often that glxinfo itself gets updated, except that changed today with the release of mesa-demos-8.4.0 as the package providing this information utility...

          I wish glxinfo's output was a little more controllable with switches instead of having to grep for the useful human-readable info.

              Code:
              glxinfo -B
              That will show the most important stuff.

                Thank you. I wonder why this isn't in the manpage.

                  Well , I made a front-end application for glxinfo, vulkaninfo and clinfo ... Its not much ... I hope it will help you ... I just tested the latest Mesa demos 8.4 with my app .. Looks like everything works fine except for one small alignment.. rest all .. Definetly they have added lot of OpenGL Limits

                  This is the link to the application .. https://github.com/arunsivaramanneo/GPU-Viewer
