Intel also makes motherboard chipsets, network interface controllers and integrated circuits, flash memory, graphics chips, embedded processors and other devices related to communications and computing. Adding more physical memory may or may not increase your graphics memory. On GMA based laptops with Windows 7, users may experience a serious bug related to the chipset’s native backlight control method failing to change brightness, resulting in the brightness becoming stuck on a particular value after driver installation.

During this period Intel became the dominant supplier of microprocessors for PCs, and was known for aggressive and anti-competitive tactics in defense of its market position, particularly against Advanced Micro Devices AMDas well as a struggle with Microsoft for control over the direction of the PC industry. The actual amounts greatly depend on the specific configuration of your computer model. The total available graphics memory is listed under Adapter Information in the Adapter tab.

Comparison of Intel graphics processing units. The processor consists of different clock domains, meaning that the entire chip does not operate the same clock speed. Unlike previous operating systems, Windows Vista and Windows 7 have greater control over memory management.


The original architecture of GMA systems supported only a few functions in hardware, and relied on the host CPU to handle at least some of the graphics pipeline, further decreasing performance. In JanuaryIntel released the complete developer documentation for their, at the time, latest chipsets and G35 chipsetallowing embbedded further external developers’ involvement.

Features include screen tiling, internal true color processing, zero overhead anti-aliasing, programmable shader 3D accelerator, and bit floating-point operations. Essentially, this is the same graphic system as the GMAbut clocked at double the speed.
