That is more of a question about your wrapper.
If you have a GLES 1.1 -> OpenGL/Mesa wrapper, then you can use the wrapper to call into either the MSFT OpenGL implementation or the Mesa implementation. The former is hardware accelerated and the latter is all software.
If you want to use a GLES 2.0 app, then you'll need a new wrapper for GLES 2.0 -> OpenGL/Mesa. The wrapper is completely different, if even possible, and the same statement applies regarding performance.
As Brian pointed out, you also (will) have the option of using the new GLES implementation within Mesa itself, which can use the Gallium softpipe. I don't know yet how/if that works with the Windows GDI driver. I hope to look into that someday.
Finally, if your real goal is to develop GLES apps in the Windows environment, I believe AMD offers a GLES implementation that is hardware accelerated on Windows. I played with it for awhile and started a port of the gears app to GLES 2.0. I am not aware of a similar offering from nVidia, but it has been awhile since I looked.

For 1.1 program, there should not be a problem. But what about any 2.0 application.. in that case i cant call OpenGL on Windows from my wrapper, right ?My basic aim is to use 2.0 program for my application, for 1.1 i have n number of options.On Thu, Aug 13, 2009 at 8:14 PM, Karl Schultz <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:
No. That would require that a driver be written for each graphics card. Since vendors already supply OpenGL drivers on Windows, there is little incentive to repeat the work in Mesa for Windows. I suppose that one could do it if they had the appropriate hw specs.
A couple of notes back in this thread you said that you had a wrapper for opengl-es functions, which supposedly called Mesa. Why not just use the stock Windows OpenGL and the drivers that are appropriate for your graphics card? IOW, why use Mesa at all for this? Why don't you simply call OpenGL on Windows from your wrapper?

Hi Karl,Thanks for your reply.Yes, you are right. I am using MESA on windows.But is there a way to use h/w accelaration in MESA on windows?Thanks & RegardsVinitOn Wed, Aug 12, 2009 at 10:57 PM, Karl Schultz <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:
Are you using the Mesa windows (gdi) driver? It is 100% software, so performance will be slow.
Also, if you are on Windows, the standard timer is very low resolution. If I remember right, that timer has about a 16 ms period, which may explain the values you are getting. If you want higher resolution, then use the multimedia timer, or time things that take longer.

I tried some opengl 2.0 es example using MESA.
I am able to render it properly but performance is not so good.
Is there any flag i need to enable to use optimized performance from Mesa?
What is the meaning of performance data ?
What all it should include?
What kind of GPU do you have?
