Just as NVIDIA work its PR machine pimping the ION low-cost, small computer systems (which deliver better graphics performance than pure Intel Atom based systems), a guy by the name of Vladimir Plenskiy comes along to slightly spoil the party.

Vladimir Plenskiy has developed a tweaking tool called GMABooster which is apparently able to boost your graphics performance by 2.4 times, according to the maker.

GMABooster offers graphics boost for netbooks

Take your standard Intel Atom netbook, laptop or nettop with Intel GMA 950 graphics chip - each mobile chipset (945GM/GME/GMS or GSE943/940GML/GU Express) is of the low voltage version kind and hence has the GMA 950 graphics chips' core clock speed is clocked lower than usual.

GMABooster promises to unlock the graphics power of the GMA 950 by adjusting the clock speed from 133MHz up to 400MHz, which is the default GMA clock in a "normal" desktop Intel 945 chipset.

We will attempt to try this tool out first hand over the next day or two and see how it works. Check back for a possible article later and if you want to try it out, go download it here. via Bit-Tech
