OpenGL a growing concern

In an interview with Nvidia’s Roy ‘The Boy’ ‘Terrific’ Taylor, SplashDamage, developers of the upcoming FPS Quake Wars, let on that they think DX10 will get a run for its money. Since the Khronos Group took over the running of the OpenGL Architecture Review Board last Autumn, they have managed to get chip-makers like Nvidia to open up DX10-esque hardware features in the OpenGL system. “The extension mechanism has also allowed manufacturers of high end cards to gracefully expose DirectX 10 features on Windows XP,” Splash said. “OpenGL is still the only viable 3D solution for cross-platform development on the PC,” we are told, and that includes XP, Vista, Linux and OSX.
