I thought i’ve read that NV would support ATI_vertexArrayObject ext in their latest drivers?? but… i can’t see the ext in the 40.xx & i can’t remember where i’ve read that!
more infos? :))

I doubt NVIDIA will ever support the ATI extension, but most likely the ARB vertex array object extension that is currently being worked on.

I suppose it depends on how similar the ARB extension ends up. If it’s similar enough such that the ARB pretty much just included the ATi version, then I guess they’ll support the ATi extension too.
