Quick Update week: GMA3100 is coming with 1.3.2 Update pack!

GMA3100 is coming to the family, finally. After several test and careful development, GMA3100 is finally here, plus it will be joining the 1.3.2 update pack directly.

The Sherry 1.3.2 update will also, hopefully, fix several bugs and performance issue. Since the last update (1.3.1), severe bugs and issue are reported to be fix. Hopefully 1.3.2 will try to further improve stability and improve on performance.

Sherry 1.3.2 key factors :

  • Complete core code revamp, a lot of time consumed, but it is worth
  • Power saving features now increase battery life time by 15% more (compared to Sherry 1.3)
  • Hopefully to increase webGL performance on all chipsets variant
  • Major update in Dynamic Memory Handler (try to max out maximum VRAM available for the device)
  • Optimize for Core Solo Processor, the driver will adjust the processor required in single CPU system.
  • Again fix several other system that have validation error
Other notes will be list on the release day.
Other than that, as single update package will also be release for GAM3150 users, although it will be release a little late than the standard package above. Still, the Sherry 1.3.2 for GMA3150 will include all the update from 1.3.1 and further stability fix and validation error fix for some system. Looking forward for the release πŸ˜€
That’s all for this week updates, keep up the support, show some love by liking our facebook page or donating to the project, links on the side bar rightside. Β Thanks! πŸ˜€

    Are there any news regarding a x64 release?

    It would be great for me to use this driver on my laptop, but unfortunately, I need to use x64 Windows 7…

    Best Regards.

    • AngelicTears says:

      64bit driver won’t be continue until 32bit drivers are in the acceptable in terms of stability and performance, which is almost near. Other then that, I won’t giving out an exact time, but 64bit drivers will be release directly to the current stable 32bit driver. for example, if in that time Sherry 1.3.xx released, then 64bit driver pack will be release with that version as well. No one gets left behind πŸ˜€
      Keep up the support.

    • AngelicTears says:

      Currently I’m developing an alpha code for thr 64bit driver. Although no plans on releasing it until next month.

    First, thanks for all of your hard work. We all appreciate it!

    And now the question – what about embedded 950s? πŸ˜‰

  3. Nic says:

    is gma3150 update also being released with 1.3.2?

  4. Nic says:

    nvm i just read the bottom of the post keep up the good work angelic πŸ˜€

  5. hrsh91 says:

    will the update increase the memory from 256?? and will it eliminate screen tearing in some games?

  6. szataneux says:

    what about embedded 945?

  7. TheFusio15 says:

    Why does it takes so long for the GMA 3150?

    I want to boost it! 😦

    • AngelicTears says:

      Well, the fact that I don’t have a GMA3150 system on my possession, I can’t do anything on speeding things up. Unless I have enough money to buy one myself to help the project. Currently I only have 945 / GMA950 laptop, so naturally things are working fast cause I have the 945 to test as often as I can.

      Also programming a driver isn’t as easy as it seem, a lot of effort are done. Plus I’m a one man army working for free, not a company full of programmers.

      Despite that, I do am sorry for the lateness, as my last post said, the GMA3150 1.3.2 update will come as soon as it is finish.
      Keep up the support, and donations are very welcome to support the project, optional that is πŸ˜€

      Owh, and you can try the first version of Sherry 1.3 for GMA3150 here

      • TheFusio15 says:

        The first version didn’t worked for me because it said me “this driver can’t be installed on this computer because it hasn’t been validated for this computer”, so I need to wait for the next release.

        And if you need a beta tester just send me a mail, I’ll be happy to test it for you!

    Will windows 8 developer preview get support?

    • AngelicTears says:

      I already tested Sherry 1.3.1 with Windows 8 Developer Preview, and it is working great πŸ˜€ for me at least.
      Although there are some thing that can be improve as Win8 will be based on web tech, so the rendering will have to be improve a bit. Gaming wise it shows a little more performance than in Win7.
      So yes, when the Windows 8 retail will be release, you can expect full support from the future Sherry Driver series. Note that you’ll have to keep a stock driver handy as Win8 DP don’t have intel 945 driver in it, so as in windows update.

  9. cooled1 says:

    AngelicTears, i have a x64 system with a 3150 and uefi. I’m running the windows 8 developer preview. If you need any help, please contact me.

  10. War Paz says:

    • AngelicTears says:

      They are several test app that I used for some basic benchmarking.. for standard, I used performancetest to do some basic bench. For webgl, I used webgl aquarium on both chrome and firefox. U can use any other benchmarking tool out there. πŸ˜€

  13. HYSC says:

  14. turnkit says:

    I tried installing on an Acer One with GMA3150

    but Sherry 1.3 said “This driver does not support your current system”.

    These systems are going for $250 after tax at Walmart in the States right now.

    • turnkit says:

      Okay, I found the link to the v1.3.2 GMA 3150 driver but now I get the message:

      “The driver being installed is not validated for this computer. Please obtain the appropriate driver from the computer’s manufacturer.

      Setup will exit.”

      I tried also to “Run as Administrator”… using Windows 7… will look for an answer. Any suggestions?

  15. baumnick66 says:

    Is it possible to set screen resolution to 1440×900 while installing your driver? My 19″ monitor accepts up to this resolution, and now, after the installation of Sherry driver, I am not capable to see anything (message: resolution not supported)! Thanks in advance…

  16. Nathan says:

    There’s one main problem with other previous drivers, All modded drivers doesn’t support for full aspect ratio(no border). There’s always 2 black bars at the side of screen, but on stock intel gma3100 im able to see that option (1. Maintain Aspect Ratio 2. Full Screen Ration) i hope on this update has full aspect ratio settings. Goodluck and more power.
