Don't install GMA 950 driver

I have ASUS Eee PC 1005HA with GMA 950 Accelerator.

I used to play mkv files with KM Player with my VGA driver installed.
playing 720p HD files was too slow and the sound and video were not simultaneous.

Then I reinstalled my windows and DID NOT install the VGA driver.
once i tried playing a HD video and the result was unbelievable.
it was so smooth and good that I couldn't believe.

Does any body know why? (the video renderer was overlay mixer both times and I'm running on win7 ultimate)

  1. The windows driver was better than the one you installed?
  2. +1 to mhelm1, sometimes windows will install a better driver then what you download from the net.
  3. I haven't tested 3d graphics yet, but up to now I'm sure windows 7 driver is better for multimedia uses.

    And one point that I forgot to tell you before:

    With the original driver for the device, Windows Experience Index Rating showed 2.3 for aero performance,
    and now that I didn't install it it shows 2.0
    but reality is something quite diffrent.
    (3D graphics are same on 3.0)
