According to some documents seen by Fudzilla, Intel plans to release a DirectX 10 driver with Shader model 4.0 support for its G35 chipset in Q1 2008. The new driver for G33 supporting Shader model 3.0 is out and we were disappointed with the scores that we got.
Well, Intel IGP is good for gaming as
much as a spoon when you need a knife and we don't think that this
has any chance to change anytime soon.
At least now we have a promise, and we could not stop laughing a few weeks back when an Intel representative told us that Intel clear video offers quality superior to Pure Video from Nvidia or ATI's Avivo.
Intel will get its drivers right, at least eventually, but we don't expect that to happen in Q1 2008. It will definitely take them a bit more time.
