I cannot find the open source Intel GPU drivers for OpenGL 4.5 as stated here: https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Intel-Driver-GL45-Certified
I have just upgraded, installed, my Ubuntu 16.04 (Lenovo L460 with i5-6200U) with x-swat PPA https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-x-swat/+archive/ubuntu/updates
Now my system has Mesa 17.3.3 which is quite recent. (mesa is right now on version 18)
But (unless I am reading this wrong) my system is still using OpenGL 3.0
$ glxinfo | grep 'version' server glx version string: 1.4 client glx version string: 1.4 GLX version: 1.4 Max core profile version: 4.5 Max compat profile version: 3.0 Max GLES1 profile version: 1.1 Max GLES profile version: 3.2 OpenGL core profile version string: 4.5 (Core Profile) Mesa 17.3.3 OpenGL core profile shading language version string: 4.50 OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 17.3.3 OpenGL shading language version string: 1.30 OpenGL ES profile version string: OpenGL ES 3.2 Mesa 17.3.3 OpenGL ES profile shading language version string: OpenGL ES GLSL ES 3.20
I am on kernel 4.13 in Ubuntu 16.04
$ uname -a Linux 4.13.0-32-generic #35~16.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jan 25 10:13:43 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
This is glmark2:
glmark2 ======================================================= glmark2 2014.03+git20150611.fa71af2d ======================================================= OpenGL Information GL_VENDOR: Intel Open Source Technology Center GL_RENDERER: Mesa DRI Intel(R) HD Graphics 520 (Skylake GT2) GL_VERSION: 3.0 Mesa 17.3.3
So I take that my system is still using OpenGL 3.0.
I assumed that being these new OpenGL 3.5 drivers for Intel, open source, they would come bundled with mesa, right?
Any help in what I am assuming wrong, reading wrong or missing?
