OpenGL 4 vs OpenGL 4.1 in GTX580 Tags: Nvidia Vanilla OpenGL Graphics Last response: March 18, 2011 11:18 AM in Graphics & Displays Share ankushm999 March 16, 2011 2:49:14 AM Hi guys Why is it that the Twin Frozr cards have only OpenGL 4.0 and the Twin Frozor OC version is lower than the vanilla OC. Could someone please explain this? It doesn't make any sense at all. More about : opengl opengl gtx580 jryan388 March 16, 2011 2:57:27 AM Looks pretty weird. Maybe u could email MSI unless someone else has the answer. iam2thecrowe a b Î Nvidia March 16, 2011 7:01:59 AM i suspect its a difference in the driver. im pretty sure there is a driver release that enabled 4.1, or opengl 4.1 wasnt released when they non oc'd cards were released.

This doesn't make any sense unless MSI is pushing inferior cards under their twin Frozr series. iam2thecrowe a b Î Nvidia March 17, 2011 8:42:06 PM no, cards were hardware capable of opengl4.1 before they released it, as those functions were already in dx11 and opengl was lagging behind a bit. http://developer.nvidia.com/object/opengl_driver.html ankushm999 March 18, 2011 2:44:07 AM Thanks a lot! I'll be buying this card today without any doubt now :-) gamerk316 March 18, 2011 11:18:12 AM All the improvements in OpenGL 4.1 from 4.0 were software enhancements, so I don't see any issues. Essentially, every DX11 card should be able to meet OGL 4.1 spec. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: ForumNew OpenGL cards review; Ati vs nVidia - comments?
