    In a recent review seems like Asphalt 9 is now fully working with the driver along with a lot of other graphics memory hungry MS Store games , weather that is an improvement to apps engine memory handling or just the developers tuning down their resource hungry apps to reach more platforms is beyond me but since I had it as an example of non working apps I thought i'd keep you informed as its status changed .

    P.S consider this just an informative post related to the period surrounding its time stamp , if it breaks later then original post had it right .

    Intel GMA 4500 MHD Extreme Plus (by nIGHTmAYOR)

    Full Name : Intel (R) Graphics Media Accelerator Family

    Aliases : Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD Driver for Windows 10

    Version : 107.0.777.64 (2993/2869 Mod)

    Rebranded : Intel (R) HD Graphics Family


    1 - Make sure you have System Restore enabled before installation for safety

    2 - Also it is recommended to have the latest mother board Bios installed

    3 - No there are no expected crashes or hassles but if any occur do note you may need to consult forums on fixing Windows corruption than rather thinking the driver is corrupted

    4 - Run the steps according to their exact numbers

    5 - Always use run as Administrator to Run a step

    6 - Starting step 1 the PC will restart so make sure you save all your work

    7 - Folder : Extra Tweaks hold additional performance tweaks that are useless

    8 - If you have already installed several other drivers and this one fail to install , a probable cause might be you need to remove previous drivers , if found to be hard try to update to Windows default driver (The WDDM) first

    9 - A red dialogue should pop up to inform you that you are about to install an unsigned driver where you have to click install to that , it's what we are doing here anyways

    10- Some Anti-Viruses have odd features called "Containment" or "Run Virtual" and sometimes these take control and setup the driver in a virtual machine like environment and not really install it (Example Comodo or Kaspersky) in all cases if you want to ease up your life just disable your Anti-Virus during setup , you can always scan the driver first just to make sure everything is clean and to note , this one shouldn't be hated by any Anti-Virus as it is constructed from all official files

    11- When all steps are done make sure to enable Intel Control Panel through Right Clicking Desktop > Graphics Property or alternative translation

    12- Enabling Tray Icon is accessible through : Right Clicking Desktop > Graphics Options or alternative translation

    13- If you can't find Graphics Properties / Options do re-install the driver

    14- It is better to make sure Intel Control Panel is set to the following :
    3D > Custom Settings > Checked
    3D > Texture Quality > Performance
    3D > Anisotropic Filtering > Application Settings
    3D > Vertex Processing > Default Settings
    3D > Vertical Sync > On
    Power > Plugged In > Maximum Performance

    15- That's it , you are done , dismissed

    16- This driver was tested on Windows 10 1809 if a future release breaks it then do not nag for fix as you might hardly praise me if it works


    >>DOWNLOAD<<


    ****If you are into reading and history blahs read this :****

    This is a decent port of the Intel (R) Graphics Media Accelerator 4500 MHD Driver for Windows 10 64 bit, while backward compatible with most other platforms (Except for XP) I have not tested it but on Windows 10 .

    There are no plans to do follow ups nor fixes (nothing needs to be fixed really) as this is the final squeeze of the lemon to the driver that fixes all other glitches found in previous ports / accelerated version attempted for Windows 10 .

    I am not a wizard , if you do not have 8 GBs of RAM you will still suffer accelerated the driver is or not . It does run well on 4 GBs of RAM but then do not ask much from it other than running basic games and normal tasks .

    There is no 32 bit version as in this era staying with an OS that can only handle 3 GBs of RAM while the GPU itself require 1.759 GBs of shared memory meaning any attempt to use such platform is a joke .

    You might think but isn't using an integrated graphics chip in 2019 a joke?!
    Surprising this driver is capable of running most store games at 45 fps average , this isn't magic but apparently most of these games are optimized for tablet performance and tablets seem to not be very resourceful making their performance seeming equivalent to an integrated graphics chip .

    This release has been a collaboration of work and thoughts of several developers including me like the guys behind PHDGD moded driver & IncrediblE where I attempted to break down their approaches and fix the leaks .

    This release fix the following :

    1 - OpenGL errors / games will not start because of OpenGL (from PHDGD)

    2 - Windows crashing on resuming from Hibernation or Sleep (from IncrediblE)

    3 - Absence of Intel Control Panel User Interface (by nIGHTmAYOR)

    4 - Crashing SearchUI.exe when Cortana is Enabled (by nIGHTmAYOR)

    5 - Upgrading to latest Control Panel v.2993 (by nIGHTmAYOR)

    6 - Inclusion of Intel Turbo Booster & Display Audio (by nIGHTmAYOR)

    7 - Mild Over-Clocking (from IncrediblE)

    8 - Input Lag (by nIGHmAYOR)

    9 - Registry Optimization for Gaming (from PHDGD)

    10- Absence of Power Options support (by nIGHTmAYOR)

    Known Issues :

    1 - This driver will not run any game that requires graphics memory above 1.75 GBs (example Asphalt 9)

    2 - Surprisingly this driver can operate games optimized for Nvidia and AMD better than the ones optimized for Intel as now intel is using moded version 9 of OpenGL and this driver version of OpenGL is 4 but still they will run normally

    3 - Do not expect the unexpected , I can't make this piece of crap beat an Nvidia or an I9 , I am just giving you a smooth entry to Windows 10

    4 - Glu games released past August 2018 may show Input Lag (of keyboard that can not be fixed because it is somehow deliberate despite their games running at 45 fps using this driver)

    5 - As per Windows design on creating a new user you might need to re-install the driver to have accessibility to context menu and tray icon again (because somehow windows manage to do a silent re-installation of the driver without signature flag removed for no valid reason)

    6 - Re-installing the driver further on can be a breath through device manager saved copy in drivers store , just click same driver installed and it will re-install

    7 - There is something important I can't seem to remember that should be here

    8 - And probably here

    Special thanks to the guys behind PHDGD and IncrediblE , if it wasn't for your crappy drivers I wouldn't have to write my own and P.S Royal BNA driver has a trojan so I haven't used any of their blahs , the *******s ...

    P.S

    a. This is a driver I made for a toddler whose parents didn't want to buy him a real PC but persisted that I should help him with it , so yea there are a couple of drivers out there that can help it port to windows 10 but the problems they add are greater than the ones they solve . so anyways since I realized that , I decided to share the driver I made him with the rest of you in case someone come to need it .

    b. Consider this driver a beta until someone reports back it gave him no problems

    c. And no personal demands , I didn't like the project one bit .


    Cheers,

    Nice work but if you don't mind, could be able to make a mod driver like this for Intel GMA 4500m. It's not intel Gma 4500mhd. Thank you

    works for both as even the supplied official driver by intel is one for both , you can try and confirm .

    Then what's the difference? Is it the software or hardware? Also if you don't mind if I ask. How are you able to mod? Just getting interested in modding😅

    the difference is clock speed of both chips , mhd is slightly faster than m .

    as for modding i didn't come to a good source about the subject , i just studied reverse engineering then the ability to mod came naturally .

    like i explained earlier i had to break down other modders approaches and research the changes they made and weather they were valid or not etc and adding up few things of my own , is all explained in opening post under release fixes .

    OK well thank you for your help. One last question. Will it somewhat increase my gpu temperature or let's say melt?

    The majority of the tweaks were optimizations meaning the GPU is still operating within its frame of operation just more optimized .

    This GPU in particular is locked for overclocking however I found that the guys behind IncrediblE (as mentioned in opening post) were able through a trick increase its voltage by 0.1 volt (mild over-clocking) , this in particular introduce a performance gain = to 2~3% and temperature increase = to 0.5~1C , while this is quite negligible I still managed to include it as every squeeze for performance gain count in such severe case of a relic GPU .

    For those skeptical I managed to include a registry file in a folder named "Extra Tweaks" to disable it so i suggest you do since you are so much worried .

    Thank you for the driver. Just one question, when I install Windows 10 on a Vaio VGN-NS135E it installs an official driver and everything works "ok". What would be the difference between the official driver downloaded via Windows Update and this driver. Is there any significative performance gain on replacing the driver with this modded one?

    yes there are few differences :
    1 - The wddm driver comes stripped from opengl package which might result in programs relaying on opengl such as the majority of non store games , photo editing and video players to crash and report an opengl error .
    2 - The wddm driver is 6 or 7 builds behind of the latest stable 2569 build so it is slow even compared to non accelerated version of 2569
    3 - The wddm driver doesn't come with intel control panel
    4 - The wddm driver comes preset to default graphics both Power and 3D to "Balanced" profile and there is no way you can set them to "Performance" profile which is like 50% speed gain (measured in fps) in the absence of intel control panel
    5 - The wddm driver does not come with the acceleration tweaks of this driver which cause additional 50% speed gain (measured in fps)

    Never expected this to happen. I have been using the Royal BNA Driver for the last few years. Thank you very much for breathing life to this very old igpu.
