OpenGL is an acronym of the Open Graphics Library. It serves as an application programming interface (API). Through which, you can easily render 3D as well as 2D graphics. It was first released in the year 1992. Also, this is developed and distributed by the Khronos Group. The main feature of the software is that it is specifically used in order to interact Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). It will help you in achieving hardware-accelerated rendering. So, it will surely increase the speed of rendering in your system. Plus, it will define output as well as the layout of each function. Also, it has continuously ongoing development. So, the newer versions are released regularly. Because of this, there won’t be any problem for you. Moreover, you will have new features and the latest technology pretty soon. It is also one of the most efficient and productive software available over the web.
Along with the above features, OpenGL is available for Windows devices only. But, it has support to almost any GPU (General Processing Unit). There is another great feature in the software that it has support to different languages which makes it a cross-language software. Plus, it has support for extensions. Although it is a feature-rich software you can also install extensions in it from a wide range as per your requirement. So, you can expand the feature list or have any specific feature for your purpose.
