Q550 and Windows 8

Postby mqojdn » Mon Jun 11, 2012 13:54

Windows 8 RP works fine on the tablet, except for the Intel GMA600 video. Which renders the tablet completely useless.

According to specs Intel GMA600 should support DirectX 10, and judging by it's performance on iPads (same PowerVR core) the chip itself delivers nice performance.

The current Windows 7 driver (3077) is hardly providing any HW acceleration. Most apps crash or display a blank screen. And those that don't, have abysmal performance.

So, the question, is Fujitsu going to put some pressure on Intel to provide proper Windows 8 support? Cause Windows 7 has come and gone and Intel haven't bothered providing a working driver.

The lack of pressure/cooperation between Fujitsu and Intel turns the otherwise nice tablet into a paperweight.
