Nvidia supports OpenGL 3.0

"New Nvidia drivers, ability to support OpenGL 3.0, Winking at the World Apple and Linux"

Khronos Group, recently returned to the limelight for OpenCL ratified as a standard, in 2007 had already submitted the specifications for OpenGL 3.0, during the Siggraph.
In fact, the new version was presented as a rewrite of the previous release (2.1) and aimed to simplify writing code and method of adjusting the hardware. For all the curious, here you can find a PDF which explains in detail the changes in version 3.0.

Nvidia has recently announced that his new driver will ensure full support to this standard. These video cards that support OpenGL 3.0:

Quadro FX 370, 570, 1700, 3700, 4600, 4700x2, 4800, 5600, 5800, VX200 Quadro, Quadro CX
GeForce 8000 or higher; GeForce GTX 260, 280

Quadro FX 360M, 370m, 570M, 770M, 1600M, 1700m, 2700m, 3600M, 3700M
GeForce 8000 or higher

Although this type of ad could leave many indifferent Windows users, whose "world" is governed by DirectX, instead taking anything for those who value daily uses Linux and Apple. To give more value to the news is the close bond that exists between OpenGL and OpenCL.
