EGL Details
EGL is an interface between Khronos rendering APIs, such as OpenGL ES, and the underlying native platform window system. It handles graphics context management, surface/buffer binding, and rendering synchronization. EGL enables high-performance, accelerated, mixed-mode 2D and 3D rendering using other Khronos APIs.
L4T supports the EGL 1.5 specification, Khronos Native Platform Graphics Interface (EGL 1.5 Specification).
GL and Vulkan Details
The OpenGL driver in this release supports OpenGL4.6, https://www.khronos.org/registry/OpenGL/specs/gl/glspec46.core.pdf. All details related to GL/GLX and other related specifications can be found at https://www.khronos.org/registry/OpenGL/index_gl.php. Conformance details for both X11 and Wayland Windowing System are at https://www.khronos.org/conformance/adopters/conformant-products/opengl.
The OpenGL ES driver in this release supports OpenGL ES Common Profile Specification 3.2. For more information on OpenGL ES, see the Khronos OpenGL ES API Registry. Conformance details for both X11 and Wayland Windowing System are at https://www.khronos.org/conformance/adopters/conformant-products/opengles.
The Vulkan driver in this release supports VK1.1.1.1, https://www.khronos.org/registry/vulkan/specs/1.1/pdf/vkspec.pdf. All details related to the specification can be found at https://www.khronos.org/registry/vulkan/. Conformance details are at https://www.khronos.org/conformance/adopters/conformant-products/vulkan.
