I just wanna know if my laptop Sony can support OpenGL 3.X and DirectX10.1If so,how possible?
How to make Intel HD support DirectX10.1 and OpenGL3.x ?
Hello, If the laptop is using Intel 2nd Generation Core Processors, with Intel HD Graphics 2000 or 3000, it should be possible to download latest drivers from the manufacturer's website. If not, you could try downloading the latest graphics driver at http://downloadcenter.intel.com/(Look under Graphics->Processor Graphics->Intel HD 2000/ 3000 drivers or run the auto detect applet).
Hope this helps. Thanks-deepak
thank you for the reply.
yeah my System is Intel Core i3-350Mand my system OpenGL support 2.1
Intel HD Did had OpenGL 3....but the problem is....its incomplete.There`s some missing extension that Intel HD doesn`t have.I using OpenGL Extension Viewer 4.0 and this is what i get :
Intel HD had OpenGL 3,3.1,3.2 and 3.3 but only OpenGL 3 have almost complete version.
I already update my graphic card,even newer version.But still same.I just thinking,how to make that extension supported? or i should use Linux Ubuntu instead because mostly users saying that the graphics support OpenGL 3.
The i3-350M is not a "second-generation" Core processor, in Intel's marketing parlance. It only supports OpenGL 2 with current drivers, and it looks like they'll never update its drivers to support OpenGL 3. A shame, as I think it should be able to - it does support D3D10 after all. I previously asked about this herebut got no reply.
The OpenGL Extensions Viewer application reports things in a slightly confusing way IMO. New versions of OpenGL are usually created by rolling existing extensions into the core, which is why they describe versions in that tree in terms of the extensions that were used for this. But that's not the only thing which might change with a new version, and an implementation isn'tobligated to support an equivalent extension even if it supports a higher core version of GL.
The upshot is that HD Graphics (the original, not 2000 or 3000) doesn't currently have a fullOpenGL 3 implementation on Windows, but does support some of the extensions that way.
You could switch to Linux I suppose, but I don't know what the driver situation is there. If Intel supplies them, I assume they won'tsupport GL3 either. But if they're 3rd party, you might be in luck.
Hi guys, PLEASE HELP!!! I have the I3-350M and intel hd graphics as well. However mine isn't even OpenGL 2 compatible I ran the same program you show above. OpenGL extensions viewer and mine is only 1.1. I have tried acer and intel support and no one can answer me as to how to update to the right drivers. Intels auto updater says to contact manufacturer. Acer says to contact Intel. Please help I just want to run the new Photoshop and onone software which requires OpenGL 2 compatiblilty. I am not computer savy and really am stuck here. Looking at your post this is capable of being OpenGL 2 compatible! which is great news as I dont need a new laptop however please help me how to make it this way. Thanks! A
