    Why 3.x instead of 4.6?

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

        The GL3 rendering support isn't yet usable but is an alternative to the Vulkan API usage and OpenGL ES.
        The "OpenGL 3" renderer is actually OpenGL ES 3.0, so it's not an alternative to OpenGL ES

        Godot does not intend to have a desktop-only OpenGL renderer, so that it can run on mobile devices and WebGL 2.0. This is also why it's OpenGL 3.3 Core Profile, and not anything newer.
