[DS] John Carmack: Nvidia’s OpenGL extensions rival Mantle, 8GBs on consoles not a significant change - Page 4

post #31 of 33
OpenGL is extremely capable and current. The Rendering Pipeline of the latest versions is at the cutting edge of technology and almost all of the games you play have not used that level of technology yet (since they usually cater for the average hardware, not the very best).

The main reason people use Direct3D over it sometimes is development workflow because they may have been used to it, because Microsoft may offer them better support, because Microsoft may have secured deals with technology factors making it convenient to them, it's absolutely unrelated to OpenGL in itself being "bad".

mantle if the only API used fora game beings nothing but, incompatibility specially when news cards 5 years form now no longer have mantle support.

I like OpenGL, I know other programs use it like Google Earth. In most cases though, you can't use it "out of the box" for the PC. I really don't care about wii...

okay so what you don't' care about the wii that's besides the point. it's the idea you can make 1 game for several consoles and pc operation systems at once. with out having to totally re do the game engine and programming.

most/all games o nsteam that are win/mac/linux use open gl. Amnesia and ALL other frictional games, HL 1,2, Portal 1, 2, CS, TF1,2, torch light 1, 2 and more.
