GMABooster is a nice application designed to allows users to manually adjust the core clock of Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 (GMA 950). By choosing between 166/200/250/400 MHz, directly from a Windows environment and without even a need to restart the computer, user gets an ability to boost the graphics perfomance significantly.

Offering up to an astonishing 2.4x of extra processing power for Your computer's integrated graphics engine, the GMABooster is a must-have tool for every user interested in advanced 3D gaming, truly flawless Windows Vista and Mac OS X experience, smoother operation of Google Earth, improved video playback, and perfomance gain in a variety of professional applications!

Frequently Asked Questions List (please scroll down to review answers; or click here to open FAQ in a new tab)
Q.: 2.4x boost without adjusting the voltage (right, Your hardware will not be exposed in any way!), how is it possible
Q.: The boost in game "X" is about 25%, while in pure GPU tests (like 3DMark '05/'06 Pixel Shader or Texturing tests) I see a whopping perfomance increase, just as expected (I mean, as might be predicted with calculator) - up to 2.4x! Why is it so
Q.: On my laptop a popular diagnostic utility GPU-Z reports that I already have GMA 950 running at a speed of 400 MHz. Do I still need the GMABooster
Q.: On my laptop a popular diagnostic utility Lavalys Everest reports wrong ("1 step down") GMA core clock. Is it a defect
Q.: Should I keep the program running, or may I close its window once I set the desired core clock What if I reboot my computer, do I have to set the core clock again
Q.: Is it planned to release GMABooster for mobile chipset ...
Q.: Where is a 64 bit version of GMABooster
Q.: I have installed GMABooster on a fresh Windows XP and it is not working at all ("Application failed to initialize..." error). How to troubleshoot
Q.: Is there a way to apply GMA core clock setting automatically on Windows startup
Q.: I have got a question which is not listed here! How can I get an answer

Q.: 2.4x boost without adjusting the voltage (right, Your hardware will not be exposed in any way!), how is it possible
A.: A short preamble is needed to explain what makes a GMABooster technology possible. Let's consider an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 (GMA 950). This integrated solution, while not fully supporting the latest and the most demanding games, still allows a user to enjoy the mass of brilliant gaming hits of all genres. GMA 950 does also fully support Aero and QuartzGL (enhanced GPU-driven user interfaces of Windows Vista and Mac OS X). It features a basic video playback acceleration, as well. However, if You have own a laptop/netbook/nettop computer built on Intel 945GM/GME/GMS or GSE943/940GML/GU Express chipset, the above statements may not be truth for You. These all chipsets are LV (low voltage) versions of what we normally call Intel 945. Thus, integrated graphics core has been underclocked dramatically: 166/133 MHz instead of 400 MHz (default GMA clock in a "normal" Intel 945 chipset). But the truth is, the indicated devices could handle up to 400 MHz with ease: at a nominal low voltage, without the loss of system stability, and with minimal to none impact on thermal specifications/battery life (proven by preliminary testing). Here the GMABooster comes! It allows a user, not a manufacturer to choose the desired GMA speed. It combines a sophisticated assembler-level technology and the user-friendly graphic user interface, offering You to near double the GMA core perfomance without even a need to restart a computer. GMABooster may be considered as a safe, free, "software-level" GPU core upgrade!

A.: In some real games or benchmarks the so alluring boost may be *quite limited* either by CPU (most of supported devices come with Intel Atom which is typically 1/2 of already low-end Celeron M
