    OpenGl Version on macbookpro6,1 mountain lion

    On my MacbookPro6,1 with Snow Leopard on it this

    printf("GL_VERSION = %s\n", (char*)glGetString(GL_VERSION));

    prints this

    GL_VERSION = 2.1 NVIDIA-1.6.36

    Can anyone tell me what they get on a 6,1 with Mountain Lion? I'm guessing that MLion has an updated video driver with a higher OpenGl version.

    10.6.x only supports up to GL2.1.
    10.7.x and 10.8.x support up to GL3.2.

    You can see this over at

    See the Profile documentation to learn about creating a GL3.2 context:
