Catalyst 14.4 is an OpenGL 4.4 driver and exposes 288 OpenGL extensions (GL=265 and WGL=23) for a Radeon R7 (A10-7850K APU) under Win8 64-bit.

- GL_VENDOR: ATI Technologies Inc.
- GL_RENDERER: AMD Radeon(TM) R7 Graphics
- GL_VERSION: 4.4.12874 Compatibility Profile/Debug Context 14.100.0.0
- GL_SHADING_LANGUAGE_VERSION: 4.30

According to this message, the GL_SHADING_LANGUAGE_VERSION wrong version is just a reporting bug:

As for the GLSL version report – yes, that’s just a reporting bug. GLSL 440 is fully supported and shaders using #version 440 should work. We’ll get a fix into an upcoming driver.

285 extensions are exposed for a Radeon HD 7770, 286 for a Radeon HD 7970 and 288 for a Radeon R7/R9.

Diff between HD 7770 and HD 7970:

  • GL_AMD_shader_trace



Diff between HD 7970 and R7 Graphics:

  • GL_AMD_occlusion_query_event
  • GL_AMD_sparse_texture_pool
