Theres 2 cards that I want to buy. They are similar but ones says :
the other :
Open GL 3.0
Is OpenGL 3.0 an important upgrade from 2.0?
You'd have to say which cards they are. OpenGL 3.0 is basically synonymous with DX10, I believe (aside from not needing Vista), so I'd be a little surprised to see something that's DX10.1 compliant, but only supports OGL 2.0.
I'm fairly sure OpenGL 3.0 was mainly just a driver update on most cards.
"Bob Zone question"...what exactly does "Open GL" mean..refer to...yes I know related to GPU Drivers but .....? Always wondered this..never asked.....oooops..
You still see some indy games using it at times, I know.
In translation it is Open Graphics Library. There is also OpenAL which is Open Audio Library. Those are the 2 main ones that you would see. OpenGL is just an API like DX but IMO behind DX especially DX11. That is probably why most games don't use it.
