Intel HD Graphics Driver v2729 with OpenGL 4 Support and New OpenGL Extensions!

Intel logo

I just tested the latest HD Graphics driver v2729 with my Ivy Bridge GPU and guess what, GPU Caps Viewer tells me that Intel has (silently?) added the support of OpenGL 4! Yes my friends, we can now run OpenGL 4 apps (with tessellation!!!) on Intel GPUs. Yeah! The funny thing is that there’s no mention of the OpenGL 4 support in the release notes. OpenGL 4 in the HD Graphics driver is not a big stuff for Intel, just a quick update… ;)

You can download the HD Graphics driver v2927 (15.28.0.64.2729 (9.17.10.2729)) from this page. This driver is intended for Windows 8 but the package contains also the Win7 64-bit driver.

v2729 is then the first OpenGL 4 driver (exact version: 4.0.0 – Build 9.17.10.2729) from Intel and exposes 143 OpenGL extensions (GL=127 and WGL=16). Compared to v2712/v2696, v2729 adds 11 new OpenGL extensions:
