Intel ships long-awaited graphics drivers
The 965 chipsets were supposed to be a dramatic step forward for integrated graphics performance. Most PCs come with graphics technology built right onto the chipset that connects the processor to memory and the rest of a PC. Serious gamers opt for discrete graphics made by Nvidia or AMD's ATI division, but most people save a little money and get the basic graphics.
Intel wanted to make an integrated graphics chipset with more powerful graphics performance that would allow basic PC users to play some of the latest and greatest 3D games when it shipped the 965. But it has been unable to write the drivers needed to enable that performance until now.

Took them this long to make XP 965G drivers, still working on Vista versions. So any bets on similarly improved G33/G35 drivers? Hopefully they'll be able to make a driver for Larabee in time for it's launch if they start about now...
Maybe they can fix their ICH8/ICH9 driver issues as well while they're at it, since 945PM/ICH7 doesn't seem to share the problem...
