It sounds like a GPU driver problem. Blender 2.80 & your hardware are the same as when they worked before. Maybe the Windows update didn't like the installed Nvidia driver? I'd recommend downloading and installing the latest from Nvidia's website.
Yes your GPU should be great for Blender.
Is the texture packed into the blend file, or in a separate png / jpeg file on disk?

Hi! I added 3Dconnexion support back in 2010/2011 and we got the same kinds of responses. Some people think everything is backwards, to others it feels right. Blender added options to customize direction/feel soon after that.

@Brandon Farley (farcgs) I'm responsible for 3D mouse support, and will make sure this is not forgotten in 2.8.

@Germano Cavalcante (mano-wii) why do you think Intel HD is limited to OpenGL 4.0? My Mac's HD 4000 reports OpenGL 4.1, so 4.2 on Windows sound legitimate to me.

Confirmed here as well. It's failing during selection, not the drawing we see on screen.

I too think making uniforms for all parameters is the way to go, when editing or animating a material. Constant value nodes can be compiled for faster preview/playback when a material is not being edited. This is one area we can do better than the Unreal editor.

Thanks @Joshua Leung (aligorith), that debug dump has some useful info.

I'm working on this now! Should have a better solution in a few days.

Exact same issue on Mac + NVIDIA.

It should be fixed already, feel free to close as resolved after confirming.
FYI our new immediate mode handles this by recreating its internal VAO every time we start drawing to a different window (each window has its own GL context). Much simpler there because imm has only one VAO total, not one per batch, potentially thousands.
How about a more radical approach? Have one drawing context that all the windows use. The GPU already draws in sequence whether we have one context or many. The one drawing context has all VAOs so we don't have to manage anything ourselves. Adding yet another manager isn't the only solution.

I agree with @Ray molenkamp (LazyDodo) about removing "inline". Simplest solution & I've found static private functions to be as effective as inline. If we ever need public inline functions we can define this in gawain/common.h

The Geforce 8000 series are the oldest GPUs from NVIDIA that support OpenGL 3.3. I recently got an 8600 for compatibility testing. Windows 10 did not recognize it but I can try Windows 7 (otherwise the card might just be bad).

Excellent work @Sergey Sharybin (sergey)!

Thanks @Wo!262 (wo262) for the quick response! Hopefully Intel really fixed this between 4624 and 4627 and we just have to wait for the newer version to roll out.
I'll try to reproduce this issue on a debug build which should tell us more information. I only have a few NVIDIA cards though, none of the ones reported here...
@Wo!262 (wo262) what driver version? I would think HD 520 and 530 would have the same driver available.

Gawain's limit matches common hardware limits, that's why it's 16. This applies to active attributes in the shader. I talked with @Clément Foucault (fclem) before about aliases — these don't belong in VertexFormat, and the limit should not apply to them. VertexBuffer or Batch is a better place to track aliases... still need to figure out the details!

Please explain the difference between the new shader and GPU_SHADER_3D_POINT_UNIFORM_SIZE_UNIFORM_COLOR_OUTLINE_AA. Is it something that the rest of Blender (outside the 3D view) might want to use?

More results from Intel HD 520 + Windows 10.
Crashes inside Intel graphics driver while linking one of our shaders. This one!

I have some Windows + Intel systems here for testing.

Why remove modern and keep legacy? The other way makes more sense to me.
I'm testing Blender 2.78c on an AMD A10-7850, not seeing any issues. Tried different window draw methods, region overlap, nothing yet breaks it.

Good to see you @Antonis Ryakiotakis (psy-fi)! Thanks for digging into this & verifying that it does help.
Also try "OpenGL Occlusion Queries" in User Prefs | System | Selection.
It might be related to a change we made in 2.77 — always use VBOs to draw objects. @Small Sébastien (Conique2001) your graphics card has plenty of VRAM so should be able to handle large poly counts. So hmmm....

Thanks for the fix, I can't believe this hasn't caused problems before!
As of c8ab7d46566c4a65c6176cd2ebe27778512f7fef we use OpenGL 3.3 core profile on all platforms. We still have some implementation and cleanup work ahead, but this milestone is effectively done.
