The Wiki page on GMA annoyingly doesn't have full timeline data and I can't find it on Google/Intel either. Our customer is wanting our app to work on graphics released after a certain date and since the 3100 is a low-spec card I want to try and check which side of the line it falls.

This question came from our site for professional system and network administrators.

    
The Wiki Page (linked directly from the one in your post) for Intel's chipsets does have release dates in most cases and it lists May 2007 as the release date for the chipsets that supported the GMA X3100. –  Helvick Jan 5 '11 at 14:33
    
I think this might be a better fit on superuser. As a point of interest though, if you're talking about app support then the date when it was last generally available might be as (more?) useful than the first available date when it comes to determining how many of these are likely to be in the wild. IIRC it was a mid to late generation core2duo motherboard component, and possibly the atom too. –  RobM Jan 5 '11 at 14:56
    
@Helvick the 3100 and the X3100 are totally different products –  Mr. Boy Jan 5 '11 at 15:23
    
@Robert this is less about what's sensible and more about complying with pre-agreed clauses :( –  Mr. Boy Jan 5 '11 at 15:24
    
I understand how that works but I figured it was best to give you any ideas I thought might help and let you line it up how you please :-) –  RobM Jan 5 '11 at 15:44

Intel G33 Performance Review from 2007 refers to it as :

mid-year release known as the G33, aka the GMA 3100

So this dates from mid-2007.

GMA 3100 is part of the G31 chipset also, according to Intel http://www.intel.com/products/desktop/chipsets/p31/p31-overview.htm

The G31 chipset Data sheet is dated July 2007 http://www.intel.com/Assets/PDF/datasheet/317495.pdf
