My System Specs


If i'm not mistaken, support for OGL 3 is installed with the recent NVIDIA drivers, don't remember starting at which revisions, but think it is starting with 178.xx, however, the opengl string still reports 2.1, and think it is for compatibility purpose - (adding of OGL3 extensions to 2.1, for support on older hardwqare perhaps)

From my understanding you don't "download" or install anything the support is there with new drivers. I had a special tool used for the testing phase of those initial drivers to enable OGL3 extensions but can't find it now.
