Will lol faster and smoother in windows xp than windows 7 with intel g31/g33?

#1
I want to play lol but my fps is very low in windows 7. Concretely it is alway lowering than 45 fps and drop down <20 fps when i'm in combat.
I know that intel g31 have higher memory graphics in windows xp, 384mb. While in windows 7 it is 256mb.
But i wonder that could it will faster, higer fps and smoother?
Hope for ur answers.

Have you tried updating the drivers? I know Intel recently released a new driver:
Download Intel® Graphics Driver for Windows* [15.45]
It is used for new integrated graphic card like intel 2000,3000,4000, etc.
Old graphic card use intel graphic media acclerator drive, which is not updated for a long time.

Win 7 driver
Downloads for Graphics Drivers for Intel® G31 Express Chipset

As for G31 performance see here:
GMA3100 Graphics

Integrated graphics solutions will not deliver performance or features anywhere close to those of decent 3D graphics cards such as the Radeon HD4850/4870 or the GeForce 260/280 by Nvidia. Even mainstream graphics cards based on GeForce 9600GT processors vastly outperform integrated solutions.

Your asking could it go faster?

Basically no not without new drivers or the current drivers are somehow slowing you down and a reinstall may help.

I included the performance scale above to show that ideally for games your going to be struggling but i guess you know that.

Best way to improve your graphics is getting a better solution

Well considering you're running a computer that is probably 10 years old, yes things are going to run slower on Windows 7 vs XP since more resources are needed to run Windows 7. You could buy a cheap computer $200-400 that would run much better than what you're currently using.
