Thats AWESOME NEWS FOLKS !!!!
Yeay! Opengl 3 Strikes back (hopefully)
Hopefully we will not only see better graphics but also smoother gaming....
Great, and I am buying an Opengl 2.0 card... I'm sick of being left behind damnit
For those of you who don't know, OpenGL is another standard of graphics processing. OpenGL was the hot stuff like Direct X is now, but when DX surfaced everyone jumped on that, but some things still require OpenGL so they never stopped making it. If DirectX never surfaced, we would be looking at the 8800's going OMG OPENGL 10!!
But unlike direct X, OGL is multiplatform.
Which is why direct x is going to fall like a ton of bricks in a few years, flat on its face. Its already begun.
Eh, maybe when they start coming out with more cards that have the option of OGL 3.0
I believe your video card already supports 2.0 hat. How is that 1800 working for you now anyways?
Excellent! Another thing to tick off my upgrade list.
UPDATE: Just a little more information. This time taken from the official OpenGL website...
Also, found some slides from the Siggraph conference where it was announced and the specifications documents as well.
