I have tried using Eevee on my computer, but it kept crashing. It was a version that was downloaded a couple of weeks ago. Also, I attempted to use Substance Designer and it failed to work as well. My computer is just a standard laptop with no special additions to it. I went to the requirements page and it said the following:
Note: These requirements are valid for Blender 2.77 up to 2.79b. However, Blender 2.76 and earlier still supports Windows XP and OpenGL 1.4 graphics cards. Blender 2.8 requires OpenGL 3.3 or above.
Unlike the last time that I check this page almost a year ago, Blender was more explicit about the graphics card requirements. I want to know is OpenGL 3.3 is the common standard for all new computers after a certain date if not, are there indicators for it?
