It features 80 shading units, 10 texture mapping units and 1 ROPs. Drivers are shipped with Windows Vista since beta versions became available in mid The processor consists of different clock domains, meaning that the entire chip does not operate the same clock speed. This causes some difficulty when measuring peak throughput of its various functions. Intel HD Graphics Driver

It is the last product of Intel GMA.

Many of the advantages of the new GMA architecture come from the ability to flexibly switch as needed between executing graphics-related tasks or video-related tasks.

Intel Graphics Driver Installer for Linux 1. Free and open-source device drivers: However, computer original equipment manufacturers OEMs may have altered the features, incorporated customizations, or made other changes to the software or software packaging they provide.

Intel describes this as “a flexible, programmable architecture that supports shader-based technology, 2D, 3D and advanced 3D graphics, high-definition video decode, and image processing.

Intel HD and Iris Graphics. Oracle Solaris 11 provides bit video driver support for the following Intel graphic chipsets: Late-release versions of Mac OS X The combination of these two changes in graphics driver code resulted in many Mac revisions being unable to upgrade to Mountain Lion, as their GPUs cannot be replaced.


To avoid any potential installation incompatibilities on your OEM system, Intel recommends that you check with your OEM and use the software provided via your system manufacturer. Archived from the original on August 11, This section needs g355 citations for verification.

It is supported by newer chipsets e.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver Update

Intel announced in March that beta drivers would be available in June grapyics In JanuaryIntel released the complete developer documentation for their, at the time, latest chipsets and G35 chipsetallowing for further external developers’ involvement.

Intel Centrino 2 Performance Test”. The software drivers provided on this page are generic versions, and can be used for general purposes.

The processor uses different separate clock generators for display and render cores. The 4th generation of GMA combines fixed function capabilities with a threaded array of programmable executions units, providing advantages to both graphics and video performance. Archived from the original on The original architecture of GMA systems supported graphicz a few functions in hardware, and relied on the host CPU to handle at least some of the graphics pipeline, further decreasing performance.

Archived from the original on November 26, Apple removed the bit GMA X drivers later, and thus affected Macs were forced back to the bit kernel despite being bit clean in terms of hardware and firmware.


Each pipeline can process video, vertex, or texture operations. This series targets the market of low-cost graphics solutions. The available Linux drivers do not support much of this.
