Windows driver version 382.96 and Linux drivers version 381.26.13 provide beta support for OpenGL 4.6 and GLSL 4.60 on capable hardware.

Please note these drivers are for developers who want to experiment with “OpenGL 4.6”. Other developers and consumers should download drivers from http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx. The best way to stay up to date with drivers and other news from NVIDIA is to install GeForce Experience.

This product is based on a published Khronos specification and is expected to pass the Khronos Conformance Process when available. Current conformance status can be found at www.khronos.org/conformance.
