New Sandy Bridge Driver Boosts Game Performance

Don't get TOO excited ... This only applies to those running INTEL HD Graphics.

'Sandy Bridge' driver update boosts Windows game performance


"This major graphics driver update for 2nd generation Intel Core processors with Intel HD graphics improves game performance by up to 37% on ULV platforms," Intel said in a statement


IMO it's somewhat impressive than integrated graphics can perform at ~1/3 of a crappy discrete GPU. It says something about how far R&D has come.


I'm presuming this will also help Lucid Virtu?

Although that seems buggy as hell and constantly needs re-installing. Probably not even worth having it enabled with my 560Ti, but never mind :D I like to feel like my Z68 was worthwhile ^.^
