Hello everyone.

I set up this blog since I've come across countless posts from different forums about whether a certain game works on a laptop with an integrated graphics solution such as the Intel X3100.

While this blog will cover the X3100, which I have, you can also find a link to the blog about the GMA950 integrated solution (which is maintained by ElbertZai), and as such will prove that integrated graphics solutions are not to be brushed aside.

Welcome to the unique world of mobile gaming.

X3100 on Windows 7

A good day to all.

There has been talk about the Intel X3100 gaining an increase in performance in Microsoft's OS follow up to Vista which it calls Windows 7. This is probably due to the fact that the WDDM in Win7 is a much more improved version than the Vista one.

We may need to wait for some time before we can get Win7, although it wouldn't hurt if Microsoft included the improved version in Vista SP2 (wink*wink*nudge*nudge*hint*hint).

Let's hope it just gets better from here.
