by on13 July 2018

Brings fixes and improvements for several games

While you might not get a high FPS on extreme resolutions, Intel's iGPUs still hold a high percentage on Steam hardware survey, so there are plenty of users playing games on it, therefore it is good to see that Intel has started to more actively update its graphics drivers and bring support and bug fixes, including the latest Intel Graphics Driver for Windows 10 version

According to the release notes provided by Intel, this is the launch driver for three new games, including Warhammer 40K: Gladius, Relics of War, Defiance 2050, and the Banner Saga 3, bringing all the necessary optimizations for these games to work on Intel UHD Graphics 620 or better IGP.

In addition to these three hot games, the new Intel Graphics Driver for Windows 10 brings support for BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle, Lust for Darkness, and The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, all of which should work on Intel Iris Pro Graphics or better GPU.

Intel also has a dedicated site where you can check out the recommended game settings for PC games, which is a nice addition as it gives you a starting point in tweaking the game to be playable on Intel IGPs.

The new driver also brings several bug fixes, including graphical anomalies in DOTA 2 when using Vulkan API, color anomalies when minimizing and restoring HDR playback on Intel 7th generation CPUs or higher, and corruption or incorrect rendering of video images with Adobe Creative Cloud products.

The Intel Graphics Driver for Windows 10 version supports Intel's 8th generation Core/Pentium/Celeron/Xeon CPUs with Iris Plus Graphics 655 and UHD Graphics 610, 620, 630, and P630 iGPU, 7th Generation Core/Pentium/Celeron/Xeon CPUs with Iris Plus Graphics 640/650 and Intel HD Graphics 610, 615, 620, 630 and P630 iGPUs, 6th Generation Core/Core M/Pentium CPUs with Iris Graphics 540/550/580 or HD Graphics 510, 515, 520, 530, Xeon E3-1500M v5 with HD Graphics P530, as well as Pentium/Celeron CPUs with HD Graphics 500, 505 or UHD Graphics 600, 605 iGPUs.
