Intel GM45 WDDM1.1 driver

I'm not exactly sure where to download Intel's graphics drivers, but a new one was pushed out today through Windows Update. Windows seems a lot more responsive after this update. I will test out multi monitor at work later.

at this point only Vista drivers are on Intel's driver download page and the most recent ones are almost a year old.
another thing. did you have problems with video playback or recording before the update and did the update fix that?

An ATi Catalyst update bumped my Windows Experience Index by .2 pts.

Maybe the update is only available to Windows 7 testers. Maybe Intel doesn't want people to download the driver that easily.

Not sure if anyone else has the same sort of problems, but on my Lenovo X200s I get artifacting on the display with both the built-in driver out of Windows7 and the WDDM1.1 prerelease driver. I reverted back to the graphics driver from Lenovo that was designed for Vista and it works better.

Can you describe your artifacting? Is it in games or just the desktop and DWM?

It happens in the Aero environment - I don't game on this laptop, I don't think it could handle it

I'm getting the same thing but mainly on the second monitor. Seems to be worse since the 1.1 update. Considering rolling back to the Vista drivers.
I'm on x64 also.
