NV_point_sprite on ATI?

The spec says in the addendum that NV_point_sprite is supported on Radeon 8000+. But I can’t find it on my machine (9700 Pro on Linux), and the extension registry on Delphi3D.net doesn’t list it either.

Is that a bug in the spec or a bug in the driver? I hope in the driver, I’d really like to have that… .


sometime I wrote a thread about emulating point sprites using vertex and fragment programs (especially for the Radeon guys )

Perhaps its helpfull
