Intel Graphics Driver v4590 for Windows with Vulkan Support



Intel logo

Intel has released a graphics driver for Kaby Lake and Skylake processors. This new graphics driver (v21.20.16.4590) brings the support of Vulkan:

Intel announces that we are moving from beta support to full official support for the Vulkan API on Windows going forward.

Vulkan targets high performing real-time 3D graphics applications, like games, while giving low-overhead hardware control over GPU acceleration to developers. Vulkan* promises great performance and predictability, while paving the way to better equip games to handle virtual reality or 4k HDR.

I tested v4590 on a Skylake CPU (Intel Core i5 6600K with a HD Graphics 530 GPU) and here is the Vulkan report from VK-Z
