    configuring intel nm10 integrted gma3xxx graphics card


    I am trying to configure my graphics card to get the best performance it is an
    intel nm10 integrted gma3xxx
    I am running !# and had to create an xorg.conf file which I don't know will even help.
    The display section is like this
    Code:
    Section "Device"
            ### Available Driver options are:-
            ### Values: <i>: integer, <f>: float, <bool>: "True"/"False",
            ### <string>: "String", <freq>: "<f> Hz/kHz/MHz"
            ### [arg]: arg optional
            #Option     "AccelMethod"        	# [<str>]
            #Option     "DRI"                	# [<bool>]
            #Option     "ColorKey"           	# <i>
            #Option     "VideoKey"           	# <i>
            #Option     "FallbackDebug"      	# [<bool>]
            #Option     "Tiling"             	# [<bool>]
            #Option     "Shadow"             	# [<bool>]
            #Option     "SwapbuffersWait"    	# [<bool>]
            #Option     "XvMC"               	# [<bool>]
            #Option     "XvPreferOverlay"    	# [<bool>]
            #Option     "DebugFlushBatches"  	# [<bool>]
            #Option     "DebugFlushCaches"   	# [<bool>]
            #Option     "DebugWait"          	# [<bool>]
    	Identifier  "Card0"
    	Driver      "intel"
    	VendorName  "Intel Corporation"
    	BoardName   "N10 Family Integrated Graphics Controller"
    	BusID       "PCI:0:2:0"
    EndSection
    I have absolutley no idea on how to adjust the values the options require. Is there a website I can go to figure this out?

    Is there something driver-specific you are trying to tweak? Or are you just looking in general to see what improvements might be made?

    In any case, check your local system for a man page, e.g.:

    Code:
    man xorg.conf
    Here is a website that has a pretty good round-up of Xorg tweaks and option explanations:

    Thanks, great link and I followed it. Changed the values it suggested and only found a slight improvement, should'a gone with the integrated nvidia card.
