View Full Version : NV GF400 vs 500, difference in GL programmability?

Not sure if this is the right forum to post this question to.

What are the differences in terms of programmability (OpenGL, GLSL, and OpenCL) between a GeForce 4xx and a 5xx?

For example, one difference between a GeForce 2xx and a 4xx is OpenGL 4.x support (which I find significant, IMHO).

What are the differences between a 4xx and a 5xx?
Not interested in performance considerations.

Both are based on the same architecture, so there is no difference in the programming model between them.
