First of all,it's nice to be on this forum :)
Can someone port the GMA 600 drivers to the GMA 500(archos 9)?Or at least overclock?:confused:
They both use PowerVR SGX 535.


-GMA600 is clocked at 400MHZ and support some newer chips(Z600)
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 600 - Notebookcheck.net Tech
-GMA500 is clocked at 200MHZ and is used in the archos 9,sony, and other tablets/PC
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 500 (GMA 500) - Notebookcheck.net Tech

Does the igdlh32.INF have to do with anything?
all the lines seem to be almost exactly the same,just like 3-5 lines are different?idk :eek:

I get the driver selected for this device does not support this version of windows not sure what else to try....


Not sure if this is too complicated or time consuming,but the ONLY difference seems to be the clock speed.Overclocking isn't too hard on other regular PCs,but is hard for the GMA 500.

Overclocking an Intel device would usually be inside the bios or on the motherboard itself. These aren't really Intel devices but PowerVR's so I'm not entirely sure if you can overclock with software. Maybe if you overclocked the FSB then you could.

Well, here are your driver you wanted. They've been ported for Windows 8 and the GMA 600 driver has the hardware ID's of the GMA 500. You can try them, although they may not work.

First install the custom certificate installer. Chrome will get a false alarm.
DropBox Mirror
MediaFire Mirror

Next choose which driver you want and install like normal. They've been compressed as a self decompressing zip to save time.

They crashed my computer,when It was about to finish installing?(GMA 600)
I got to that point once,but then my installation was messed up so I had to re-instal.
This time I was able to boot into windows 8,so I got lucky.

What's the difference between the GMA 500 and GMA 600,that you can see?
maybe changing it so It supports the CPUs of the GMA 500 series,on the GMA 600 driver?
I have no idea how or if it's possible?

Different files. The inf is not that all different, but the files used for installation are different. Just use the driver meant for your system.

Also according to the links you posted, GMA 500 supports directx 10 and pixel shader 4.1

The crash may be because I removed the BIOS update from the GMA 600 drivers as to not destroy your graphics card.

alright thanks for that :)
I made a lot of modifications to one of the drivers to get OPEN GL 2.0 and other things working,so now my problems are gone :)
switching to Win7 also helped performance wise,i'll wait until the final win 8 is released.

note:also the Drivers are REALLY badly made,so DirectX10 and other features will most likely never work,as they should.
I have to rely on custom drivers,which are always a hit or miss.

@XDleader555
could you also make a better Windows 8 driver for the GMA 600 or something?

I've heard something about IEMGD drivers or something?!. I've no idea. The problem with the GMA 600 seems, that *all metro stuff* isn't hardware accelerated somehow, and also Windows 8 crashes sometimes.
Its interesting to see with Windows 8 Media Player i can play 720p and also 1080i videos just fine on my Q550, but when i want to play it in the video app, i can only see one picture every 20 seconds or so.

It would be really great if you could somehow help me out or so.

Have you installed directx? Why not try another media player which is in embedded into a codec pack or even VLC. I personally like CCCP (combined community codec pack) which includes media player classic.

As for IEMGD drivers, It's basically a build suite which lets you create your own driver. I've done a quick search and found that you can download it here, and I found a guide for a sony vaio P here (just take the info you need). Looking at forums post shows that users were able to have full hardware acceleration in the metro screen. Give it a try.

No i haven't installed directx. I didn't test another media player, because i want the metro one just to work.

My problem isn't that this video app doesn't work correctly, my problem is that all metro apps seem not to be hardware accelerated. I can't even play 'cut the rope' without getting a 'your pc is slow' screen. Metro is pretty much useless, because the majority doesn't work right.

I installed the IEMGD packed, and tried it, but for me it didn't work. =/

Thanks anyway.

can you made the GMA600 driver support 600*800 480*640 and 768*1024?

Overclocking an Intel device would usually be inside the bios or on the motherboard itself. These aren't really Intel devices but PowerVR's so I'm not entirely sure if you can overclock with software. Maybe if you overclocked the FSB then you could.

Well, here are your driver you wanted. They've been ported for Windows 8 and the GMA 600 driver has the hardware ID's of the GMA 500. You can try them, although they may not work.

First install the custom certificate installer. Chrome will get a false alarm.

Try an IEMGD driver which you can find on post 9. To have lower resolutions you have to flash the video bios which you can build with IEMGD drivers. (I think)

HI,master XDleader555,Do you kown FUJITSU F-07C?A Combination of mobile phone and UMPC,My friend was mentioned it at post 12.F07C uses GMA600 graphics card and a screen is portrait.However,the driver of GMA600 just support 600x1024 Resolution.it cause many application and game can not run,NOW,we A great need a driver for support 768x1024,600X800,480x640.we don"t kown how to modify the IEMGD drivers. Do you help us(many F07C FANS in the world)?
I meaned"can you help us to modify a graphics driver and completed it?"Thanks to you on behalf of F07C FANS.

The FUJITSU F-07C screen resolution is 1024x600. It doesn't support 1024x768; it will cause it to crash. You cannot change that. BUT, you can change the orientation.
Right click the desktop and select "Graphics Properties..."
Go to "Display Settings"
Check the "Enable Rotation" box
Select what kind of rotation (Ex: Rotate 90 degrees)

You don't need a modified graphics driver for rotation.

Don't call me master -________-
EDIT2: I found a page about allowing 1024x768. Maybe it's possible after all.

i means that,the fujitsu f-07c only support 600*1024,the screen is very strange,it support 600*1024 not 1024*600,so when we rotate the screen resolution ,the screen will use 1024*600 physical resolution to show us a 600*1024 or 600*800 or 480*640 desktop for us, the screen seems very strange

I think some practical problems was still unclear, in fact, the game need 800X600 resolution at least, but the graphics driver does not support 600X800, so we can not depend on the way of rotate to display the 800X600 mode, in addition, we also need to support the 768X1024 and 480X640 then by rotating to show the final 1024X768 and 640X480.THANK YOU!

Additional problem: the current drive is also not allowed to change the aspect ratio, even if you change to "Peserve Aspect Ratio" , it still shows "full screen" , results, the image is pulled, meaning that whatever you choose what mode he stll is the default "full-screen", I've tried to modify the registry that was related to the ratio, But no effect, even if you change the registry entries or delete it, he will automatically restored to its original state when it was restarted , so...please...

Wow! Thanks for the quick response, I appreciate it. Unfortunately, that didn't seem to work.... or at least there were error messages in the dos text like "This version of bcdedit.exe is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running."

Any clues on this? Also, do you know if am I expecting too much from the GMA 600 chipset to get streaming web video without stutter? All non-web video video content seems fine. It's not buffering video on the web, and I have a wireless-N connection.

Also the Windows Aero function isn't working after I install the driver - and I don't get the "transparent" toolbars either.

Thanks again for your help!
