GMABooster - improving Intel GMA IGP netbook performance

 


Introduction

 

The vast majority of notebooks and netbooks on the market make do with Intel integrated graphics. Intel holds the vast majority of the GPU market with its integrated graphics chipsets, including the GMA 954GM and GSE940 among others.

 

These GPUs are fine for general computing and surfing the Internet. However, should you decide to play a 3D game on a computer running these Intel integrated GPUs it becomes clear quickly that the GPU is the bottleneck for gaming performance.

 

Basic games are playable on notebooks of the type you find online, but if you throw a game on a netbook that needs 3D acceleration, you swiftly realize your hardware is lacking. Today we are going to look at a software offering called GMABooster that promises to improve the gaming prowess of most Intel GPUs. Does it work? Read on to find out.
