Hi guys. I was wondering if you could me out.
For those who don't know, Flash player has released 10.1 beta that will now utilize the GPU when encoding flash. YAY.
However, I am unsure if the Y550 will be supported.
Here are the specifics
Hardware video decoding of H.264 content in Flash Player 10.1 is supported on the Intel® 4 Series
Chipset family, starting with the graphics driver version 188.8.131.526 for 32/64-bit Windows Vista and
Windows 7. These drivers are available from:
• 32-bit EXE: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=18334
• 64-bit EXE: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=18336
Or automatically detect the latest driver for your system by using this link:
To determine if you have the Intel 4 Series Chipset,
1. Right-click on Desktop -> Personalize -> Display Settings. It should say “Generic PnP Monitor on
Mobile Intel® 4 Series Express Chipset”.
2. If you click on Advanced Settings under Display settings, it should bring up an Intel-specific window where the chip Type mentions “Intel® 4 Series Express Chipset Family”.
So is Intel 4 series chipset? I am having difficulty having such information.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M
The Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M (sometimes also called GMA X4500 M) is a DirectX 10 capable integrated shared memory graphic card for laptops. The GPU is integrated in the Intel GM40 and GL40 chipsets and designed for cheap laptops.
So it's either GM40 or GL40. and only GL40 will be supported in Flash player 10.1 as far as i know.

The integrated graphics is the Intel 4 Series Express Chipset and thus will be supported by the new Flash player, with appropriate driver.
