    I trying to ask, is Vbox use hardware for 3D or is just software, i get only 1.4 OGL on my Intel G31 is that it?

    With the guest additions, VB uses the host graphics hardware for 3D rendering. But currently, VB is limited to OpenGL 2.1 so even on a GTX 400, you can’t execute GL 3 or GL 4 demos.

    GL 1.4 on Intel ? I guess it’s okay…

    Thank you, i was cheapskate on my IGP GPU, G41 boards supports OGL 2 and never higher probably.

    I ask because i try that MSI Kombuster and show me error about OGL just 1.4.

    @Robin Stjerndorff: the GPU is used but the FPS is limited to the screen Vsync (60Hz).

    @filip007: The error is okay because Kombustor needs an OpenGL 2.x support. I don’t know if Intel plans to add some GL 3 support in their drivers.
