Funny you should ask that. I have just tried it. It appears the
GMA 950's D3D9 driver isn't that great either.
Gregg's aquarium demo (http://websamples.googlecode.com/hg/aquarium/aquarium.html)
runs but looks terrible. Many triangles aren't textured and which
are & aren't changes with each frame causing horrible
flashing. I'm running Chrome Canary build 9.0.576.0.
When I run it on my NVIDIA-equipped desktop computer, using the
continuous build Chrome 9.0.583.0 (66100), without
"--use-gl=desktop", the aquarium looks fine so the problem
appearsrelated to the Intel graphics driver, but oops, it just
froze. Oops. The canary build on my notebook computer just froze
Attached is a screen shot showing the incorrect rendering.
As for the freeze, in both cases, when I restarted Chrome, the
demo would run for only a few frames then freeze again. I tried
many times. Eventually I rebooted the notebook and the demo is
running again. On the desktop side, I reinstituted
"-use-gl=desktop" and the demo runs again.
Hmm. The demo has now been running on the rebooted notebook for about 10 minutes, looks ugly, but keeps on moving. Meanwhile the desktop machine blue-screened after (1) Chrome 9.0.583.0 (66100) seemed to hang when trying to reload the aquarium demo, (2) I clicked the 'X' button and (3) clicked 'end now' to the dialog telling me the program was unresponsive. What fun. :-(
