While this may be academically interesting of what practical use is it, given that all Mac's, other for Mac Pro's have non-swapable graphics cards? Even with MacPro's the 3rd party graphic card, options are limited. The time that knowing such parameters is actually useful is when making a purchase decision on a new Mac, or when replacing a graphics card in a Mac Pro. In either case you have to rely mostly on the vendors published specifications.

Nothing has changed since 4.1.1. It still crashes on my Mac Pro. Older versions (prior 4.1.1) work fine. Any ideas?

"Detects OpenGL 4.2 feature set" So this is more useful for Linux/Windows users... *sigh* C'mon, Apple!

Something strange I noticed is how in the previous version my OpenGL 2.1 scores were incredibly low but with the latest release (3.32) I'm getting close to 400fps - I am wondering whether the GLviewer has been optimised thus when it is properly optimised for the Apple OpenGL implementation the performance improves. My 2.1 score for the record went from 122 to 391 - something definitely must have changed - I've yet to test it on my iMac but I'm pretty certain that I'll see the same sorts of results.

great but I wish there was more demanding geometry/normal/parallax/Cg shader stuff in it for the benchmark. It's hard to see the benefits of my Quadro FX 5600 with a cube. Throw a few models in - a million-poly spec and normal mapped ZBrush model or something.

Indeed an great tool. Also great for OpenGL Benches (Test Tab), running it an native+higher resolutions above 1024x768. Xbench OpenGL : forget it.

What a kick-a** little utility! Provides everything you ever wanted to know about your Mac's graphic capabilities... and much more. It runs great on my Tiger 10.4.11. A bargain at twice the price.

I had hoped to use this to bench Leopard vs Tiger on a less than supported machine. G4 450mhz, Radeon 7000, 512MB of RAM. Leopard was surprisingly responsive on it, and OpenGL Extensions Viewer ran fine, benching up to 1.4 and pegging it around 73-74fps on each. In 10.4.10...it crashed. Every time. So there's something buggy in this release, because I could not bench it on the old, supported OS, but I could on the new, unsupported (on that machine) OS. Strange.

Hi guys, its Ray again, I've read the replies that were posted below. All have good points, what I was saying was that 2.15, only worked with my last build of 10.2.8 Jaguar. I now have the last build of 10.3.9 Panther, I also plan to upgrade my ATI card. I have a G3B&W, 500 mghz, and 1024 of RAM I also plan to upgrade the Processor too. After the upgrades I'm sure that 2.27 will work fine.

Why is it that version 2.15 is last to launch in 10.2.8? I tried later versions but they didn't. I've had a longtime habit of saving files of software that work.

...I'd suggest utilizing options in the installer to allow specific directory installation... not that this really needed an installer, did it?

Great Tool - no other shows that Informations. Interesting informations about what OpenGL funct. are implemented and which are not (NV, Apple(ATI) has to work). MAC OS X OpenGL is a bit behind other OpenGL Systems.

Definitely a pretty hot app! Appreciated intuitiveness despite the amount of information that can be culled from this app... and a built-in OpenGL benchmark and compatibility tester (well, more compatibility than a benchmarker- an old Rage128 could handle those tests)!
