Intel HD Graphics Driver v2770 Available for Windows 8, New OpenGL Extensions



Intel logo



Intel has released few says ago a new beta version of the HD graphics driver for HD Graphics 2000/3000 (Sandy Bridge) and HD Graphics 4000/2500 GPUs (Ivy Bridge). This driver provides full support for Windows Display Driver Model version 1.2 (WDDM v1.2) features including native stereoscopic 3D support, optimized screen rotation detection and integrated DirectX 11 video playback and adds several bug fixes and improvements for video encode and transcode usages.

You can download the 32 and 64-bit versions from these links:

v2770 is an OpenGL 4 driver (GL_VERSION: 4.0.0 – Build 9.17.10.2770) and exposes 146 OpenGL extensions (GL=130 and WGL=16). Compared to v2729, v2770 adds 3 new OpenGL extensions:

  • GL_ARB_texture_gather
  • GL_ARB_transform_feedback2
  • GL_INTEL_map_texture



Does anyone know the purpose of GL_INTEL_map_texture?
