technically I don't think they are supporting OpenGL 3 yet on OS X. I would expect this once 10.6 is no longer supported, then I suppose we could expect use of some of the OpenGL 3 api's (once just 10.7, 10.8, 10.9 are supported).

There are a few overall framerate improvements depending on your video card, but I wouldn't expect Mavericks to magically make Diablo 3 run a whole lot better. I've already tested it and it still has microstuttering in a lot of places. This means the problem is likely independent of the OpenGL revision and is a client specific issue.

When the Mac client team has time, they'll try and get the game client back to the state it was in when 1.0.5 launched where stuttering was almost nonexistent. Until then, the best advice is just to keep up to date with your OS, and in the case of nVidia PCIe GPU owners (Mac Pro), there is a new update for 10.8.5 out that improves performance and stability.
