Dubbed version 188.8.131.5202, the new driver adds four new titles including Sonic Frontiers, Marvel's Spiderman: Miles Morales, Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0, and Dysterra.
Now, eight titles have been optimised to get a three per cent boost at 1440P Epic settings in Chorus, an eight per cent FPS improvement to Dirt 5 at Ultra High settings, three per cent improvements at 1080P and 1440P Ultra settings in Far Cry 6. There’s a three per cent improvement in Forza Horizon 5 in both 1080P with Extreme settings and 1440P with High settings and a seven per cent FPS boost to Ghostwire Tokyo at 1440P with Cinematic settings and a five per cent improvement at 1080P in Gotham Nights with the Highest preset setting.
Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy has a three per cent frame rate boost at 1080P with Ultra settings, 1440P with High settings, and Sniper Elite 5 with a three per cent boost at 1080P Ultra settings.
While these are not significant, they are better than a poke in the eye with short stick and show Intel is interested in sorting out driver optimisation issues.
Intel fixes a ray-traced reflection bug in Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered that can cause the application to crash, a bug in Total War: Warhammer III where color corruption can occur in certain regions on Game Pass and a bug fix for Saints Row where black corruption can happen in missions such as 'Observe and Report.'
Another bug fix about Overwatch 2 fixes minor intermittent hitching or stuttering during gameplay, a fix for Deathloop where vertical line corruption can occur with ray tracing enabled, and another in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Extraction, which fixes flickering in-game menus.
For the last three, Intel fixed a bug in Battlefield 2042 where the game can crash when entering a match. Next, in Hitman, Intel fixed a bug where texture corruption can occur in the training model. Finally, the driver delivers a Diablo 2: Resurrected fix for black square corruption occurring in some areas of Act 2.
