    well, tessellation in OS X is not disabled because of future drivers from Apple

    Valley is released too!

    And Unigine HEAVEN 4.0 use OpenGL 3.2.. (Mesa still need to catch up..)

    @geeks3d
    Khronos shortened review process just for MWC, and there are first officially conformant OpenGL ES 3.0 implementations.
    Mesa/Intel/4000H is first desktop implementation, and 2nd in general!

    Looks better than 3dmark even though some textures feel rather low-res and the lens flare is pretty annoying.

    if you are Unigine developer how is so lacking in stereo support?
    1.that general Windows 8 stereo support isn’t supported that would support ATI and Intel GPUs for stereo render also?
    2.Also for SOs older and also seems ATI 5800 series even don’t work with Windows 8 stereo altough they support AMD HD3D so for full coverage ATI GPUs and on Win7 using AMD HD3D SDKs
    3.Finally OGL QB stereo support would be good at least AMD consumer GPUs support that too (even windowed in Win8)
