Mac OS X 10.8.3 new OpenGL features

Apparently OGL has been updated in 10.8.3. I got this screencap from macrumors.com

Anybody here able to elaborate what this means in terms of any new features/performance gains?

Maybe someone more technical can correct me here, but AFAIK, C4D on the Mac doesn't use OpenGL 3 even if the GPU and OS X do.

R14 uses GL 3.2 if available.

Best regards,

So is "Enhanced OpenGL viewport now with real-time soft shadows" a result of OpenGL 3.2 support?

One gets a little soft edge but it's not fully following the
shadow samples and such. So it's a better representation
(looking better) but not exact.

OSX ML GTX285 OGL 3.2

Just seen this. Sapphire HD 7950

Curious to know if it'll be worth the cash.
Not that it matters but it looks good in white

With all due respect to AMD/ATI, my money's on Nvidia right now:

Especially from 2:10:00 onward.

They're comparing it to a *7 year old* gfx card!?

Lol Mash, apparently Saphire's sources are a little backdated. 8800GT hasn't been in a Mac Pro since 2008. In fact the current line up uses Radeon HD5870, wonder why they don't compare it to those instead?

Sales copywriting at its finest.
