NVIDIA Releases Updated OpenGL Drivers including OpenGL 4.1 Support

New drivers from NVIDIA to support today's launch of Fermi Quadro cards, as well as add new extensions to older OpenGL versions:

WHQL-certified Windows driver version 259.09 and Linux drivers version 256.38.02 provide full support for OpenGL 4.1 and GLSL 4.10.
OpenGL 4.1 Driver Release Notes

You will need any one of the following Fermi based GPU to get access to the OpenGL 4.1 and GLSL 4.10 functionality:
  • Quadro Plex 7000, Quadro 6000, Quadro 5000, Quadro 5000M, Quadro 4000
  • GeForce GTX 480, GeForce GTX 470, GeForce GTX 465, GeForce GTX 460

For OpenGL 2 capable hardware, these new extensions are provided:
  • * ARB_debug_output
  • * ARB_ES2_compatibility (also in core OpenGL 4.1)
  • * ARB_separate_shader_objects (also in core OpenGL 4.1)

For OpenGL 3 capable hardware, these new extensions are provided:
  • * ARB_get_program_binary (also in core OpenGL 4.1)
  • * ARB_robustness
  • * ARB_viewport_array (also in core OpenGL 4.1)
  • * GLX_EXT_create_context_ES2_profile
  • * WGL_EXT_create_context_ES2_profile
  • * GLX_ARB_create_context_robust_access
  • * WGL_ARB_create_context_robust_access

For OpenGL 4 capable hardware, these new extensions are provided:
  • * ARB_shader_precision (also in core OpenGL 4.1)
  • * ARB_vertex_attrib_64bit (also in core OpenGL 4.1)


It's worth noting that the Quadro 7000 is a dual Fermi card with 12GB RAM (and a $14K price tag).
