I would like you to check this article that has the different APIs that are supported for each of the generations of processors from Intel® (your product is from the second generation).
If you require any further information or support, feel free to contact us back.
Ok I understand what you are saying. INTEL DOES NOT TO SUPPORT INTEL HD 3000 (e.g i5-2520m or i7-2640m) AND ITS CLIENTS NEEDS ANYMORE.
I am devastated by your reply.
I wish you had better understanding of the market and graphics card support timespan. You seem to offer less than half of the competition support/driver development life.
Is windows less capable than other Operating Systems??? Does intel recommend us to switch to other operating systems like linux for the best performance of intel hd 3000??? This is ridiculous that we have to switch to other operating systems in order to be able to have openGL 3.3 and OpenCL 1.2 (CPU load only) support. Intel you are responsible for this outcome. Please sort this mess out.
Linux driver is openGL 3.3. Why are you refusing to acknowledge that intel hd 3000 is openGL 3.3 hardware supported?????????
Why is intel not updating intel hd 3000 openGL 3.3 driver support in windows?????
I have installed ubuntu on the same laptop and intel hd 3000 driver in linux is openGL3.3 certified. I will attach a picture later today to prove myself
I have a i7-2640m and I have one more year support. I hope that you will honor your word for a 5 year driver support.
Here is the proof that intel hd 3000 is OpenGL3.3 certified. I am waiting for a confirmation for a driver update to support at least openGL 3.3 in windows 7,8, 8.1 too (since intel does not offer a windows 10 driver I will not mention it).
Let me send this for review.
Please provide me with the information requested in the following link:
I will be providing you with my outcome with this.
I have the same problem. I updated from Ubuntu to Windows 10 and OpenGL 3.3 (supported in linux) is not supported here in Windows with the same graphical card (Intel HD Graphics 3000).
I wish you could solve this issue because it is necessary for me be able to support Open GL 3.3 and I adquired my laptop recently.
I have a confirmation from OpenCL development team that openCL 1.2 support is included in this driver "opencl_runtime_15.1_x64_setup.msi".
I have just tested it and it is working.
If you include the openGL 3.3 support in the intel hd 3000 2nd gen cpu driver then I will be an intel happy customer. I am hopping that intel openGL development team does not let me down.
would the _Intel guys add some speed to introducing OpenGL 3.3 to the HD 3000 owners on Windows if I said I needed this too !??
have just wasted about 3 hours of sleep to figure out why Bullet demos refused to run and kept crashing with null pointer errors. well thanks to a feature of 3.2 which of course we don't have in 3.1 -> glFramebufferTexture
and why 3.3 is totally missing on Windows while present on Linux well this is just preposterous and goes to show that (software) project management can be sloppy even at giant companies. hmmm, or is it there where this was invented in the first place? and then the whole denial thing, "hardware doesn't support it, go away!"... oh man, pure comedy.
let me throw something else on the table while we're waiting for the apples to ripe, does the HD 3000 offer any support for CUDA? anything!?
The possible support for this is being reviewed, as soon as I get an answer regarding that, I will be providing you with that resolution.
Regarding the CUDA support, that is a technology developed by another company and implementing that on HD Graphics is limited.
Would that question be related to graphics purposes only?
to tell you the truth I don't really expect Intel to consume time updating the HD 3000 Windows driver to support OpenGL 3.3 which should have been there to begin with. I was hoping to spare about 100 euro on a video card but it seems it is unavoidable, so thank you Intel!
regarding the CUDA, what I meant (while writing it wrong of course) was whether the HD 3000 offered any CUDA-like functionality. I suppose OpenCL should be somewhat supported but if that's like the OpenGL 3.3... I know now what to expect. and the purpose is purely computational.
or any other parallel computing paradigm/model?
this info I tried to find out on the Internet but I couldn't -> how many GPU cores are there on the HD 3000? the developing CUDA competition is stating this number right along all the other graphics card data. if I'm not mistaken this same competition was the first company on the market to offer such a revolutionary feature so if Intel is to at least catch up you'd better be doing quantum leaps on the subject.
