  1. Is my PC's performance insufficient for OpenGL 3.2?


    Hey everyone,


    As some of you may have already heard, the newest update of Minecraft Java edition 1.17 will require OpenGL 3.2. As soon as I heard about this, I got a bit scared, because quite frankly my pc is a potato. It has a 2nd gen i5 intel core CPU with integrated graphics card, currently running on Windows 10.


    I've done a little bit of research on whether I would be able to play minecraft with OpenGL 3.2 or higher, but I haven't been able to find something yet... however, I'm not that great with computers, their specs or how to find compatible updates for drivers. This is why I'm asking the community if they can help me.


    I really hope this potato won't be the end of my minecraft updates because I'm very fond of that game and its updates and I cannot afford a new computer at the moment.


    My regards,

    Yuri Slomp

    :)

  3. OpenGL Drivers

    Hi Ayden -

    This is Orlando, an Independent advisor and an expert with Windows 10. I understand that you can't play the game that you purchase without having OpenGL 3.2 above on your computer.

    OpenGL, short for Open Graphics Library, is the standard 3D Graphics API and is often required in some games or software. It will provide these programs with graphics and images. It is worth noting that OpenGL aims to communicate with the GPU (Graphics Processing
    Unit) so as to improve the performance of the hardware.

    It is said that if not updating the OpenGL drivers, your PC will automatically set the OpenGL to its default version, namely, OpenGL 1.1. In this way, there is a high probability that you can’t enjoy the maximized gaming experience.

    While in order to get the OpenGL drivers updated, you need only update the display driver as OpenGL driver will come along with the driver you download. For instance, if you are using Intel HD graphics card, try to update the Intel driver so as to get the latest
    OpenGL driver installed.

    You can try the method below to update the OpenGL on your computer:

    Method 1: Update your graphics driver manually

    1. Navigate to your graphics card manufacturer official website. (Intel, AMD or NVIDIA)

    2. On the official site, navigate to the graphics driver and choose your operating system. Download the latest drivers for your graphics card and install it to your computer. This will also update the OpenGL on your computer.

    Method 2:Update OpenGL Driver in Device Manager

    Otherwise, it makes sense to get the OpenGL driver from the graphics driver within Windows 10. That is to say, you can attempt to let Windows device manager find the driver you need.

    1. Open Device Manager.

    2. Expand Display adapters and then right click the graphics driver to Update driver. Here your display card may be AMD, Intel, or NVIDIA or any other ones with different brands.

    3. Try to Search automatically for the updated driver software.

    If possible, the Device Manager will locate the latest graphics driver for you. You can install it on Windows 10 in the hope that the OpenGL driver can be updated.

    Hope this helps, have a good day.

    Thanks,
