Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3100. : 3D support for DirectX 9.0c shader model 2.0, Open GL* 1.4 The intel G31 chipset use the GMA 3100, which is DX 9 capable. The 3D core lacks the hardware accelerated vertex shaders. However, the RAMDAC is reduced to 350MHz, and the DVO ports were reducedto225Mpixel/s . Ｄoes not have Hardware Transform and Lighting.
Can I still play a game that has (HTL)Hardware Transform and Lighting graphicsreqiurements if I use a graphics card that has hardware transform and lighting even if the chipset graphics doesn't support (HTL)?
The fact that the chipset doesn't support ( HTL ) means that I can't use a GPU with HTL to play a game that has HTL requirements?
Is it possible to use a HTL capable GPU and just turn off the intergrated graphics in the bios or does the chipset lack of HTL support stop you from being able to do this ?
These are the graphics requirements for the game are :
Video: 64 MB 3D graphics card with Hardware Transform and Lighting, such as NVIDIA® GeForce™ 3 class card or above (Note: Systems with video cards that only meet the minimum requirements are only supported in 800x600 resolution) DirectX® 9.0c and latest video drivers .
Sorry its such a long question .
