View Full Version : identifying openglES version in use with glxinfo

12-03-2017, 12:06 PM
I'm trying to identify the version of opengl ES that my computer currently supports (?) but I'm confused by the output of glxinfo:

Vendor: Intel Open Source Technology Center (0x8086)
Device: Mesa DRI Intel(R) 945GM (0x27a2)
Version: 17.0.7
Accelerated: yes
Video memory: 192MB
Unified memory: yes
Preferred profile: compat (0x2)
Max core profile version: 0.0
Max compat profile version: 1.4
Max GLES1 profile version: 1.1
Max GLES[23] profile version: 2.0
OpenGL vendor string: Intel Open Source Technology Center
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) 945GM
OpenGL version string: 1.4 Mesa 17.0.7
OpenGL ES profile version string: OpenGL ES 2.0 Mesa 17.0.7
OpenGL ES profile shading language version string: OpenGL ES GLSL ES 1.0.16

Does my graphic chip really supports OpenGL ES 2.0 while only supporting OpenGL 1.4?
Is there a place where every line of glxinfo output is explained?

From my understanding my graphic chip only has partial support of features, therefore.. I'm confused :doh:

Any advice on making things clear will be apreciated!
