Many ultrabooks make use of the Intel HD Integrated Graphics 4000 chips which are part of the CPU. My question is which OpenGL version do they support with the newest drivers?

I would like to know the major and minor version number.

According to Comparison of Intel graphics processing units # 7th generation, the Intel HD Graphics 4000 supports OpenGL up to version:

  • 4.0 on Windows
  • 4.1 on MacOS X
  • 3.1 on Linux (with Mesa 11.0)

Intel HD 4000 for the Macs;

  • 3.2 on OS X 10.8 due to limitation of operating system GL driver support.
  • 4.1 on OS X 10.9. Apple started to ship 4.x drivers from 10.9.

See here for complete table. Wikipedia page seems to be not yet updated.
