        It's advertised by their driver, that's all I care about, both as a user and as an OpenGL dev.

          Plenty of good progress on the main drivers (nouveau, radeonsi, i965, anv and radv), plus also pleasing developments on the more boutique open source graphics drivers like vc4 and etnaviv for single board computers.

            And I will enjoy the shit out of OpenGL 4.0 for my IvyBridge. When it gets here.

            Is Sandy Bridge already at its max OGL support level (3.3 I believe it was). Just wondering as I do some volunteer support for older hardware and keep forgetting the Intel VGA/OGL versions.

              Yes. Sandy Bridge is maxed out at GL 3.3.

                So beggers the question (which Michael ahs given up asking) wtf took so long to get Ivy Bridge done properly.

                  Well, apparently fp64 support on the older intel hardware is just a nightmare to deal with.

                  Although I think it's safe to say they could have gotten it done a year ago if they had prioritized it. The patches have been around quite a while but stuff like NIR and Vulkan have taken up quite a bit of dev time, and the people sticking with GL have focused more on getting their newer hardware up to 4.5 rather than the older hardware. I suppose the logic there is that there aren't many apps that use GL4 and also run fast enough on Ivy Bridge to care much about.
