Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard will support OpenGL 2.1 which adds pixel buffer objects, color managed texture images in the sRGB color space, and improvements in the shader programming API. Leopard will also provide a dramatic increase in OpenGL performance by offloading CPU-based processing onto another thread which can then run on a separate CPU core feeding the GPU. This can increase, or in some cases, even double the performance of OpenGL-based applications.
