Did Intel Make A Graphics Driver Boo-Boo? Help Me Find Out

965.jpgThat’s right folks. I need audience participation for this one.

To be eligible, you must meet the following criteria: 1) Own a laptop that uses Intel’s mobile 965 chipset 2) Have 2GB of RAM 3) Be running Windows Vista

If you have three out of three, the next step is to download the latest drivers for Intel’s integrated graphics for the 965 chipset. Should be version 15.6.1.

Okay, now you’re ready to run the test. You can download it by clicking here.

If the test craps out with errors almost the moment it starts, drop a comment here and let me know. Once there are a few results to go on, I’ll let you know the next part.


  • Yer I got a 945 on a 1 gig laptop – but I know for a fact that using any of intel’s drivers it is screwed. There’s a major problem with directX on that hardware. Try openGL? I haven’t used much GL on it but when I have I haven’t had any problems.

    Problems list:
    – If you’re deving on a 945 – don’t used indexed vertex buffers for any 3D geometry, it won’t work and it wont tell you why.

  • I’ll install Vista in about 2 weeks time and post back here… by which time the bug will probably be squashed I guess!
