OpenGL™ 3.1 extension support:
  • Support for OpenGL Shading Language 1.30 and 1.40
  • Instanced rendering with a per-instance counter accessible to vertex shaders (GLARB draw instanced)
  • Data copying between buffer objects (GL EXT copy buffer)
  • Primitive restart (NV primitive restart). Because client enable/disable no longer exists in OpenGL 3.1, the PRIMITIVE RESTART state has become server state, unlike the NV extension where it is client state. As a result, the numeric values assigned to PRIMITIVE RESTART and PRIMITIVE RESTART INDEX differ from the NV versions of those tokens
  • At least 16 texture image units must be accessible to vertex shaders, in addition to the 16 already guaranteed to be accessible to fragment shaders
  • Texture buffer objects (GL ARB texture buffer object)
  • Rectangular textures (GL ARB texture rectangle)
  • Uniform buffer objects (GL ARB uniform buffer object)
  • SNORM texture component formats
