Default intel GMA 950 driver - 10-02-2008, 10:21 PM

Hello, I was wondering how you would update the dell mini's GMA 950 driver. I heard some games are playable/plays better after updating the driver. Personally, I've never owned an intel or integrated graphics card, and this is my first laptop so I was wondering if updating driver is as same as updating one for pc (dl driver, install, restart) or is it bit different. Intel GMA's driver site got me confused a bit because apparently there are multiple versions of GMA 950 depending on what kind of mobo it's on. direct link to the driver would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

p.s. I don't own the dell mini 9 yet, I've ordered it on Sept 21, and estimated delivery date is October 27th (kinda ridiculous) and it's been in production stage since September 26th (what's taking them so long?!)

This is the one you'll want. Just download and install.

How does this driver differ from the one available from Dell?

The date reads as 2/15/2008 so I'm lead to believe that Dell might be giving us the same thing in their own packaging, unless I'm reading it wrong or something.

Yes, it's the exact same driver version as the one currently shipping with the Mini.
