Intel Extreme Graphics Tweaks

by jamie.p.walsh / June 13, 2005 9:29 PM PDT

is there any way to tweak a PC using the Intel Extreme Graphics. Other than upgrading firmware.

Adding main memory (does this help)?
I hear that using all the memory slots is more bandwidth efficient than one stick in one slot, byte or byte (is that true)?
Reallocating dedicated memory?
Is there a way to overclock the chipset?

Its a Dell 2400 with an 850E chipset and 256 MB 333MHz RAM. DirectX 9.0.

with as much posting on this particular forum, I thought I'd get at least a sarcastic remark.

why not just buy a new gpu?

dedicated graphics card, any model, be it lower or higher end, offer major improvements over integrated. just buy a new graphics card. look into ur bios, some integrated graphics let u adjust the memory for it, so try that.

Adding main memory (does this help)? - any amount will speed up ur pc, but it depends on the amount set available to ur integrated graphics.

I hear that using all the memory slots is more bandwidth efficient than one stick in one slot, byte or byte (is that true)? - ?

Reallocating dedicated memory? - see above

Is there a way to overclock the chipset? - why would you do that to integrated graphics? thats pointless.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
