    I posted this in the motherboard forum also, but with the G965-based motherboard and Windows XP it performed very badly in 3d performance.

      I'd take ANY Windows site review with a grain of salt (A lot of them,
      actually- but not for the reasons you'd normally think...) because Intel
      has said that they've not got the full support in the drivers that are
      shipping for the motherboard and that a later driver would have full
      support of everything. No use of the T&L. No use of the independant
      rendering pipelines. It's being used as a GMA 950 with those drivers.

      Of course it's going to perform very badly. The GMA 950 performed
      VERY badly.

      What I want to know is if with everything turned on, is it lackluster
      or does it stink on ice. Nobody can tell anyone that just yet.

        We hope to have our initial results out next week after the official release of Fedora Core 6. Communicating with Intel's Linux driver team, there aren't any performance tuning options available at this time and there is still much work ahead.

          Found this:
          http://deadmoo.com/articles/2006/09/...eo-benchmarked

          The X3000 on a similar setup to the person's blog that is posted above posted compared favorably to a Nvidia 7300GS with UT2004 and beat ATI's propriatory drivers with the X550.

          So at least it seems now that Intel has gotten to low-end discrete video cards.

            My Intel DG965WH (I got two of them, actually) don't run at all, because of incompatibilities between the Board's BIOS and a certain charge of MDT/MCI DDR2-SDRAM. Neither Intel, nor MDT are willing to shell out information about when or if the BIOS-fix for the widely known issue will be implemented, whilst other manufacturers provided updates to the BIOS of their boards weeks ago already.

            I'm really, really pissed by now.

            If anyone of you posting here is in the position to get to this information, I'd be glad to have it - or rather more if one could provide me with a beta-BIOS of some sort to make my damn boxes running at last (all the hardware is lying around here for 4 weeks or so now, that really is frustrating - but I can't afford new components as of now), but that'd be too cool to come true, I guess.

              Performance of GMA X3000 on windows drivers version 14.25

              http://www.forum-3dcenter.org/vbulle...=321049&page=4

              Google translation:
              G965: “a diagram driver” approved yet by Intel. “supports the numerous hardware features”. In the comparison to the old driver the values are improved around approximately 10-15%. Only Doom 3 jumps from 4 fps to 10 fps. Benchmarks in 1024x768.

              E6400, 2x 1 GiB 6400-555.

                I can work some sources and try to get you a Beta BIOS or at least more details when it will be released.

                  That would be most kind. Great thanks in advance for your efforts

                  German is my mother tongue, and I happen to own the PC mag they got their numbers from right now in my hands - the new drivers is said to sport features that enable "numerous hardware features". One of the users muses about how the next update may include major speed improvements as well, but on no profound basis whatsoever.

                  At the time being, GMA 3000 seems to be the overall faster solution than the GMA X3000. I hope this is going to change with an upcoming release, and the X3000 still got untapped power-resources of some sort.

                  On a side note, The Intel-board tested in the shootout performs incredibly well in everything concerning I/O-performance. Audio Quality is top-notch as well, at least concerning playback functionality.

                  If there's anything else you'd like to have translated, feel free to ask

                    Did you happen to dig up some info on this already?

                      Still working on it, I'll let you know if I come up with anything. If you happen to find anything, be sure to report back.

                        Well, today there was another BIOS update released (I check for those on a near-daily basis), and the changelog doesn't speak of anything remotely regarding memory compatibility. F*ck it, I'm going to get new DIMM right now.
