NVIDIA OpenGL Extension Specifications

Finally NVIDIA releases the specs of the new OpenGL extensions that come with the gf8800. Great news! :thumbup:

These specs are very important for us, poor graphics developers, in order to update our software with the latest cool features. So among these specs, there is the GL_EXT_draw_instanced that allows to do geometry instancing. Another extension is WGL_NV_gpu_affinity. This ext allows to send the gfx calls to a particular GPU in multi-gpus system. Should be cool to see how a 7950GX2 behaves. The GL_EXT_timer_query ext provides a nano-second resolution timer to determine the amount of time it takes to fully complete a set of OpenGL gfx calls. There are still so many cool extensions. As soon as I get a 8800 board, I’ll made a little tutorial to cover these cool extensions.
