Did you look at what extensions were missing from the 3.0/3.1/3.3 cases for the HD2500?
For a HD 4000, driver version 184.108.40.20618, using GL Extensions Viewer 4.0.8 I get:
v1.1 (100 % - 7/7)
v1.2 (100 % - 8/8)
v1.3 (100 % - 9/9)
v1.4 (100 % - 15/15)
v1.5 (100 % - 3/3)
v2.0 (100 % - 10/10)
v2.1 (100 % - 3/3)
v3.0 (100 % - 23/23)
v3.1 (100 % - 8/8)
v3.2 (100 % - 10/10)
v3.3 (100 % - 10/10)
v4.0 (21 % - 3/14)
v4.1 (0 % - 0/7)
v4.2 (0 % - 0/12)
v4.3 (0 % - 0/18)
Multisampling is present and correct, with up to 8 max samples.
The 3 extensions from 4.0, if anyone is interested, were GL_ARB_draw_buffers_blend, GL_ARB_texture_buffer_object_rgb32 and GL_ARB_texture_query_lod.

Thank you, mhagain! Could you report the version of your driver?
It seems neither HD supports GL 4.0, although Geeks3D reported something quite differently.
HD 2500 and 4000 should have the same architecture, and I couldn't find traces of tessellation shaders
The results on HD 2500 and HD 4000 are identical. Is it possible that only 2696 has GL 4.0 support that is removed from the following revisions?
Of course! But I have to revise my extension viewer considering GL 3.0. It's an old code rely on the first implementation in NV drivers. That's why I changed some numbers in the previous post. Thank you for the question! It makes me check "my understanding" of GL versions. I'll revise it completely.

Should GL_EXT_gpu_shader4 be reported in GL 3.0?
It seems that you are not using latest drivers. Ivy Bridge has complete support for OpenGL 4.0.

I will try it tomorrow. I remember that I had some problems when I tried to install some of those drivers, but I'll try again. Last week I was a witness that Intel graphics driver cannot install at first, but it succeeds after some of the Windows updates. I'll report the results here. Thanks!
GL_ARB_texture_swizzle and GL_ARB_texture_buffer_object are supported in the 22.214.171.12496 drivers, though they aren't listed in the extension string. I became a little suspicious after the latest driver for my AMD FirePro card also didn't list GL_ARB_texture_swizzle but claimed GL4.2 support and properly supported it, so I decided to recheck the HD4000. The shader with samplerBuffer compiled without incident, and the glTexBuffer API entry point was found. Swizzling also works properly ( glTexParameter(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_SWIZZLE_RGBA) ).
However, the noperspective keyword throws a syntax error in a shader in an interface block, and one of my #define's appears to be broken with the paste operator (##). Even with these bugs, the situation is certainly better than any Intel GL driver I recall.
