On the AMD OpenGL SDK site, they say that ES code runs natively on AMD cards.
This is quoted off of their website:

Typically, emulators or translation layers are required to develop and execute OpenGL ES application in desktop environments, but with this SDK, AMD provides fully compliant native support for OpenGL ES 2 and EGL on systems running AMD Radeon™ HD, AMD Mobility Radeon™ HD, and AMD FirePro™ graphics cards.[/quote]

Does the same apply to Nvidia cards? If not, do they have a similar feature?

Any OpenGL 4.1 graphics card (using a GL 4.1 context) should be fully compatible with GL ES 2.0
Any OpenGL 4.3 graphics card (using a GL 4.3 context) should be fully compatible with GL ES 3.0

GL ES 1.0 usually requires some form of emulation

Thanks so much. You just did for me on this thread in three lines what 13 previous answers on various sites and 4 threads didn't do.

One small issue though: You don't get EGL.
