    It comes up that it is Direct X 11 and supports Shader 3.0 but games done work.
    When doing performance tests and bench Mark test it gives low values.
    Tried drivers from Intel and Lenovo and the Windows 8.1.

    Still same problem.

    Any help.

    Define "games don't work": which games?

    The Q35 can't be DirectX11 compatible, since it was made before DirectX11 (which was released in 2008; Q35 was released in 2007).

    Furthermore, since you're posting in the Windows 8 forum, I'm guessing you have Windows 8, which may have LESS features in its video drivers for older graphics chipsets, as Intel would need to make one which conforms to the newer WDDM.

    Either way, Intel integrated graphics are not very powerful. This one is even near the bottom of the PassMark benchmark, which is usually pretty generous with its scores.

    Yes running Windows 8.1.
    The games are Mech Warrior online and Hawken both want shader 3.0
    I looked on Lenovo site and they say the driver is in Windows 8 & 8.1 and should work.
    I was thinking of a MSI R6570 Graphics Video Card 1GB DDR3 DirectX 11 HDMI+DVI Radeon HD6570.
    What is the though of this card.
