Intel GMA X3100 Driver for Windows 8


  • For this Intel on-board video (965 Express Chipset Family), Windows 8 automatically installed its native driver (version


    which is different from the latest one available on Intel's Driver Download Center (version*&DownloadType=Drivers

    Release dates are:
    04-Oct-11 for 10.2548
    and 10-Feb-09 for 10.1930

    Where these Windows 8's native drivers come from?

    And does Intel plans updating their old one to meet Win8's requirements and solve all compatibility issues?

    On both versions I had some fullscreen problems on several video games (for example, Gothic) and I'd like to know that in the future my vga will be fully compatible with Windows 8.

    Thank you!

  • the newer ones come from Intel and are probably shipped in box with win8. Please ask Intel about future support on their hardware.
