Is anyone still showing that OpenGL support isn't working under W8, even with the latest driver above? I do have a 6-series card, but it's still on the supported list. Some people are saying that they do see it enabled, though surely with newer cards. AIDA64, for example, will tell you more than you ever wanted to know about OpenGL. Running Angry Birds will, too: it simple won't run without OpenGL.
