Intel GMA 950 Review



Everybody are thinking why this fellow is writing a review about Intel GMA 950 now, while it was out some three years ago . well everyone saw reviews about GMA 950 when it was released and there was very much negative responses from gamers that this is a stupid old card which was not able to play games like painkiller, splinter cell chaos theory even when it meets all the requirements. I agree with all the reviewers that it was not able to play the above games during that time when the GMA was released with no proper drivers . Now using this GMA 950 i was able to play games like crysis , crysis warhead, need for speed carbon and world of warcraft wrath of the lich king etc. This all became possible with improved drivers from Intel and some softwares like 3D Analyze, swiftshader and also modded drivers. I will explain this softwares one by one.


3D Analyze

This is one of the most important software for those people whose video card does not support hardware transform and lighting (TnL) . Most of the games required hardware TnL,previously hardware TnL was done on cpu. Most of the games does not even start on GMA 950 as they specifically check for hardware TnL which the GMA does not support. Using this software we can emulate hardware TnL (making the game to believe that video card support hardware TnL).



using this 3D analyze i played games like prince of persia sands of time, painkiller,overlord, crysis,crysis warhead. The latest games crysis and crysis warhead ran at very low setting with playable frame rates. whereas old games like sands of time, painkiller and overlord worked at high settings.Most of the games worked for me by emulating hardware TnL.

How to use 3D Analyze

1. first download the 3D Analyze from here

2. unzip into a folder and then run 3DAnalyze.exe

3. Then press select

4. now go to the folder where you have installed the game

5. select the .exe file ( like prince of persia.exe etc)

5. now under hardware limits tick the boxes emulate HW TnL caps

6. press run.

you can save this setting as batch file . Instead of running the software again and again you can run the batch file.



Swiftshader

This is another software which can run games if you don't have hardware TnL. It totally depends on the CPU . If you want to play games with swiftshader i recommend that u have very powerful CPU like Quad core or core i7 (better getting a graphic card than getting core i7). well only thing you have to do is to drop d3d8.dll and d3d9.dll in the directory of the game .After dropping the dll's you can run the game . Because of fully dependent on CPU most of the games will become unplayable (low FPS).



ADDGAME.REG

This is another method of making a game believe that hardware T n L exist on your card . Few games just check whether hardware T n L exists are not even though the processor is able to do those hardware T n L so the game refuses to launch . Some of the game which can be run using addgame.reg are devil may cry 3 , crysis , splinter cell pandora tomorrow etc. i am giving u the code to add the game to your registry . only thing you have to do is paste this code in your notepad and save it as addgame.reg or watever u want .


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0000]
"~nfsdemo.exe"=dword:00000001

if u want to add a game to your registry just change the nfsdemo.exe to the game you want to add to registry . This only works for windows vista .



Modding intel 965 series driver

It seems that driver which are provided by intel are not good enough to run games like call of duty 2 and portal and finally when intel stopped updating driver for GMA 950, people started modding drivers of intel 4 series for GMA 950 . To everybody's surprise games like call of duty 2 and portal started working, moreover crysis started working without 3D analyze software. There are tutorial for modding drivers of 4 series in youtube .

i have modded a driver and tested on my system . With this modded driver and registry mod i am able to play lot of games without the need of 3D Analyze . Games like Splinter cell chaos theory, Devil may cry 3 , crysis etc are playable . i have also noticed some changes after installing this modded drivers. I will post screenshots of GPU caps viewer for the both version(official and modded driver).





Well you can clearly see the difference, in official 1504 driver the number of vertex shader under texture units in GPU caps viewer is 0 whereas in 1624 drivers the number of vertex shader is 16 and also now the number of Render targets are 7 whereas in 1504 driver it is 0. I have heard a lot about GMA 950 that it supports a lot of openGL extensions other than the Current drivers support. When some people asked about why intel is not providing any drivers for GMA 950 they say that the Video card is end of maintanence . I don't understand why intel is not providing any drivers for 945G which can run windows 7 with full Aero glory .



Intel 9xx Gaming community

This Group has been tweaking the intel drivers for a long time and they have come out with some outstanding drivers, which gave a performance improvements in several games . They have tweaked a lot of games which were consider to be unplayable .When i bought this GMA 950 i thought man i am not going to play games like resident evil 4 , crysis etc .. but after joining this group i have played lot of games which i never thought it is possible . you can get the updated list of games that are playable on intel GMA 950 and also in intel GMA 900 . Those who are interested can join this group .



Final thoughts

Intel GMA 950 for sure is not for gamers who need good frame rates and play modern games . still this video card can play old games at acceptable frame rates and can run windows vista with aero and also can run the upcoming windows 7 .In next review i will bring out the benchmarks of games played on GMA 950. hope this was useful.

  1. Hello Neoswrath,

    Your information is very useful thanks for it in advance,

    I also own a GMA 950 and want to play te game fifa manager 09. This game is compatible with my video card but it is not possible to play the 3d match.

    Firstly i tried 3danalyze and suddenly the option 3d match appeared to be selected in a dropdown menu. But when i clicked it the games is crashing. In 3d analyze i only selected HW tnl caps.

    After that i tried swiftshader with this app the 3d function fully worked but was lacking that hard that is was unable to play the game.

    Could you please help me?

    After i tried to play the game with 3danalyze

  10. Hi Neo, thanks for the enlightenment, I am curious, what settings did you use in 3d Analyze for the Splinter Cell series you listed above? I am having problems with Pandora Tomorrow (I haven't tried Chaos Theory yet). Oh and I found a solution for the heat vision goggles in the first game, go to SplinterCell.ini, look under "[D3DDrv.D3dRenderDevice]", look for "EmulateGF2Mode=0" and change "EmulateGF2Mode=1".

    One last question, does 3d Analyzer crash the first Splinter Cell for you when you try to use it?

  11. Oh, I used the modded Vista Drivers and don't really need 3d analyze... lol!

  21. Hi ... Well if ur running windows vista then you have to run the 3D Analyze software as an administrator.. so right click on 3D Analyze.exe then run as an administrator ... instead of doing it again and again .. u can right click and go to properties ... there you will have an option call run this program as an administrator ..tick that box ... still doesn't work then turn Windows Vista UAC ... and then try ... it should work for sure ..

  28. Thanks so much for this info, I find it very useful as my computer can't suit a proper video card (because of power requirements) and I'm kinda stuck with Intel GMA for now.
    But I have just one question, from what I seem to understand, Intel GMA 950 and Intel 945G are the same thing, is this true? Because I have I have Intel 945GChipset. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  29. yes , intel 945G is the chipset and intel GMA 950 is the GPU ,,, all intel 945 series has intel GMA 950 as the GPU ... well my system configuration is windows vista sp2/ windows 7 beta ultimate ..
    1.5 GB ram
    2.8 GHz intel dual core processor
    driver version
    8.15.10.1930 latest driver rom intel site ..
    the above version is for windows 7 and still u can install on windows vista ..
    i have not tested any games using this driver but i was getting 22 to 35 fps for prince of persia warrior within all setting high ..

  30. i just wanted to show a funny little video i made almost a year ago:

    Netbook gaming - Dreamcast emulation on GMA950 + ATOM:
    www.youtube.com/watch?v=YnS0XrxONTs
    or search manually for it by typing (in youtube): 901 soul calibur


    P.S. this is the slower 150mhz model of GMA950 (=945GSE)... its NOT the 400mhz version...


    as u can see in this video the framerate is perfect - which means that the GMA950 is up to the job... unfortunatly the ATOM 1,6ghz is too slow to make fast gameplay

    enjoy! :-)

  44. @ Neo - if you were talking to me, I dont get any error while installing or starting a new game. Everything seems fine, I start a new game without trouble and then I get main map screen where the map is transparent, kinda blue-ish. I see borders, other windows in the game works well, its just that main-map transparency problem. I googled for a days and it seems that is quite common prob..

    I have Celeron 1.8Ghz with 1GB ram, Intel 82945 integrated chipset graphics which is 845 family card. And WinXP ver 2002 service pack 3.

    Is there any 3dAnalyze configuration which can solve that main-map problem? Or the game is unreachable for that graphics...

    ReplyDelete
  45. Well i think the game can run well in vista or windows 7 .. did you ask people in intel9xx gaming group ... they will help you out ...try installing vista or windows 7 beta and using modded drivers from the intel9xx gaming ... if this also doesn't work then we have to see some work around .. you have mentioned that it is a common problem with the game ... So there might be a patch for the game ...and make sure that u have install all the patches for this game .. and let me know ... if it works ...

    ReplyDelete
  53. Wikipedia said gma950 had vertex shader 3.0 , why it can't play "call of duty 4" which just requires vertex shader 2.0?

    ReplyDelete
  54. Hi there ... Well intel GMA 950 support Vertex shader 3.0 in software only . Call of duty 4 needs hardware vertex shader thats why the game does not work . Most of the vertex processing for intel GMA 950 is done by the processor (CPU).Because of this we get low fps in all games. if the GMA had hardware vertex shader then we could have run games like oblivion and even crysis with good FPS. Hope this explains why call of duty 4 is unplayable in GMA 950 . But still people are trying different ways to run it on the GMA 950.

  70. Hi All ,

    its been a long time .. well about splinter cell chaos theory .. I didn't have any problem with Splinter cell chaos theory . I think the game is utlilizing the full Processor capacity. Because of that the game is stopped by windows . So, Try to use modded drivers from the Intel 9xx gaming or try using 3D analyze with windows 7 and just checj the emulate hardware TnL .. that is enough to run the game ..

    Hope this works

  93. your a moron,but nice work on making a software mode video card emulator for useless video hardware.

    quote "Games like Splinter cell chaos theory, Devil may cry 3 , crysis etc are playable"

    watching benchmarks of the Intel gpu 950 trying to run crysis at doom2 240x200 res~min settings max 7 fps min 1fps {crash} is not what i consider "playable"

    as it is on a core 2 4000mgz water cooled with a geforce 9 9800gtx 512 video ram is what id consider borderline playable and i can all most hold 60fps but not all the time in crysis
    with medium game settings at 1024x786 res,at times to keep the game playable i have to lower the res to yuck, 800x600res.

    i have the gpu in question on my laptop and it cant even run a 11 year old game at a playable fps and is the most useless pos iv never seen for gaming.
    a geforce 2 mx 200 with 32 megs sdr could do better.

    playable btw is stable 30 fps min.
    lower then that = unplayable for most games.

    the gma 950 seeing as it doesn't support T&L on a hardware level means its not even compatible with directX 3,and imho using software to act like a 3d performance decelerator vampire on your cpu is a wast of time aka all Intel gpus ,10% hardware 90% software cpu\main system ram performance vampire}
