Intel finally released new drivers for its G965 integrated graphics chipset which support hardware vertex shading for improved gaming performance.
Now G965 owners can boast much higher performance and support for more games. Games like Call of Duty 2, Far Cry (the game used as a poor example by some of our competitors) and Battlefield 2 (which didn’t even run) are now playable. The driver will also support the mobile chipset and upcoming Intel G35 chipset.
The driver boys have implemented a cool new switching technology that automatically switches between hardware and software vertex shading depending on the application to give you the benefit of optimum performance.
