Intel drivers to boost IGP performance

Posted on Wednesday, October 17 2007 @ 16:09:03 CEST by

Intel told the press at the IDF in Taiwan earlier this week that its G965, GM965 and G35 IGP chipsets will soon get hardware vertex processing through a driver update. This will give a nice performance boost in some games like F.E.A.R. but Intel added that it won't work in all games.

The firm ran a demo at the IDF in which the system with the new drivers scored 14 frames per second better on average in F.E.A.R. However, it's important to take in mind that this was at a resolution of 800 x 600 pixels. Higher resolutions like 1024 x 768 may still be playable but if you're serious about gaming it will still be necessary to shelve out some cash for a nice GeForce or Radeon card.

Another surprise is that Intel is working on DirectX 10 drivers for its G3x chipsets. According to Tweaktown these drivers should be ready in Q1 2008 or early Q2 2008.
