Motherboard makers doubtful about performance of new Intel IGP drivers

Posted on Friday, July 27 2007 @ 01:26:33 CEST by

Taiwanese motherboard makers report they doubt that Intel's new drivers for its IGP chipsets will offer significant performance boosts:
Intel plans to introduce new drivers for its G965, GM965 and G35 chipsets to support Vertex Shader 3.0 in August. Two new drivers, 15.6 and 14.31, will be introduced to support Windows Vista and XP respectively.

These new drivers are claimed to enhance stability significantly and support Shader Model 4.0. The drivers are also said to add better support for games including Stalker, UT2004 and Guild Wars, allowing the IGPs to deliver a noticeable performance leap.

Although the upcoming drivers mark an improvement, motherboard makers from Taiwan note that the revealed information from Intel shows that these drivers still do not support a certain number of well-known games. This prompts them to believe that the drivers will not actually deliver much of a difference.
