GMA 600 drivers for Windows 8

  1. #11


    Alright, I found some settings for auto rotation from a different driver made for windows 8, I'll make a new one soon.
    And I'll make a new custom certificate Installer which checks for 32bit or 64bit.

    Sorry I haven't posted in a while, I'm kinda busy studying for APs.
    I'll get around to making the new driver. Eventually...

    AAAAnnnddd it's done.
    I added an openGL line since it was missing and I added the rotation settings. Though, I might have just made the driver worse since they might not be compatible.

    Good Luck, here's the driver
    GMA600 v4

    Thanks a million! I won't be able to try it out for a few days, but I'll let you know how it goes. Do I need a certificate installer before installing the driver?

    The auto-rotation problem doesn't bother me as much as the streaming video issues.

    Hey, i just wanted to ask wich Browser works best with the gma 600? I remember IE 8 would work a lot better than IE9 on Windows 7. But I've never tested anything other than IE10 on Windows 8 and the Performance was never great. Im still thinking about getting a Q550 again, ist very cheap, got a great Display and pen Input.

    I've tried IE9, Firefox, Chrome, Opera & Safari. Firefox works the best for streaming video.

    Hi XDleader555,

    I have a latitude ST on which I have installed windows 8 pro retail. Unfortunately the available gma600 driver for windows 7 when installed on windows 8 does not support open gl ES 2.1. In windows 7 I can confirm that openGL 2.1 is supported by running a program called glview

    I tried your modified version gma600_v4 but could not find a difference, still no support for openGL 2. Are you able to tweak the driver a bit further? Thanks a bunch.

    Hey

    @PVS1959
    have you tried to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox? Maybe it gets better?
    Also you should try using the 3077 driver from fujitsu. Its the best tweaked driver for the GMA 600. Rotation should work like in this video:



    You can get it here:
    Fujitsu America - Support - LIFEBOOK

    Stylistic Q550.

    It contains a rotation hotkey and also sets the performance on battery to max.

    I also found this interesting post:

    Option 2 – WDDM compatibility maintained, for DX10 cards with no hope of WDDM
    1.1 upgrade that fixes the GDI problems, for those that want to maintain Aero
    but have almost as close to XP speed as possible:

    1. At this point you
    should already have a WDDM 1.0 driver installed, with whatever modifications you
    have done.
    2. If you have the troubleshooting notch available in the Screen Resolution>Advanced Properties, bring it one notch over to the left from Full Acceleration (you may try two over... anymore and D3D is lost).
    3. If this
    setting is not available (like mine). Open Regedit and navigate to
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Video\{y our video card’s
    CLSID – varies from each driver install}\0000 and input
    in:
    “Acceleration.Level"=dword:00000004
    Or
    (Try 4, 3 ,2, then 1...
    check to make sure Direct3D vis dxdiag is still enabled.. technically at level 3
    it is supposed to not work.. but in my case D3D stays running but all 2D
    succesfully takes the older recognized pipeline)
    4. Merge the following into
    the
    registry
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Avalon.Graphics]
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Avalon.Graphics]
    [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Avalon.Graphics]
    (And
    ideally all other user
    accounts)

    "EnableDebugControl"=dword:00000001
    "UseDX9LText"=dword:00000000
    "BreakOnUnexpectedErrors"=dword:00000000
    "RPCAvalon"=dword:00000001
    "RecordAvalonFile"=dword:00000000
    "UseReferenceRasterizer"=dword:00000000
    "SkipDriverDateCheck"=dword:00000001
    "SkipDriverCheck"=dword:00000001
    "DisableHWAcceleration"=dword:00000001
    "MaxMultisampleType"=dword:00000000
    "RequiredVideoDriverDate"="1980/01/01"

    5.
    DisableHWAcceleration is left enabled, in both cases this is the major reason
    for the speed increase -- and even Aero runs better at LOWER cpu usage with it
    on.. odd-- whatever it works.
    6. This mode will allow the use of Aero, if
    done right like this does for me, Aero will run as fast as the XPDM drivers for
    both 2D and 3D... much better than stock configuration I had and not what I
    expected. Going to windows Classic mode still running WDDM drivers... I gain 20%
    increase in speed over the XPDM in 3D gaming, 2D elements (movies, flash) are
    faster, the only bog down - that I know off and my CPU can keep pace.. is a
    window drag and resize... even YouTube HD is playable... except fullscreen (I am
    not expecting to get this working on my X1200 as it is not accelerated... I need
    to find a way of fooling it to do so).

    But i have no idea if this still works in Windows 8.
