Effective Migration of Graphics Drivers on Embedded Platforms
Intel® Embedded Media and Graphics Driver (Intel® EMGD) for Windows* 7 is a new, improved embedded graphics driver that is validated on Intel® System Controller Hub US15W, US15WP, US15WPT and Intel® Atom™ processor E6xx series platforms. It is officially launched by Intel® Embedded and Communication Group (ECG) in July 2011. Intel® EMGD replaces the existing graphics driver for Windows* 7, Intel® GMA 500, as termination is required to end the “as-is” support of Intel® GMA 500 in the embedded market. Hence, customers in the embedded market are encouraged to use Intel® EMGD for Windows* 7 on their latest product design to get full support from Intel.
This white paper explains migration for the Windows* 7 embedded graphics driver (Intel® EMGD for Windows 7) and introduces the steps to migrate from Intel® GMA 500 to Intel® EMGD for Windows 7. It also covers new, unique embedded graphics features that were added to Intel® EMGD for Windows 7 by comparing the graphics features between it and Intel® GMA 500. With step-by-step guidance for Intel® EMGD for Windows 7 setup, customers can configure the driver and Intel® EMGD vBIOS with Configuration Editor. With better understanding of the new software features, customers can effectively migrate from Intel® GMA 500 to Intel® EMGD for Windows 7.
