Most graphics cards today claim they implement OpenGL 1.x version. What's that mean? Does that mean that graphics card implement an OpenGL machine in hardware, and OpenGl commands in our program can be translated directly to the hardware instructions?

Or, one level up, the vendor has the OpenGL commands implemented in their drivers? If so, can we call the function from the driver directly?
