Intel HD Graphics Driver v4877 (OpenGL 4.5, Vulkan 1.0.62)




Intel logo

Intel has released a new graphics driver for GPUs integrated in Intel 6th (Skylake), 7th (Kaby Lake) and 8th (Coffee Lake) Core processors. This new driver (version 15.60.1.4877) brings the following new features:

– Intel Graphics control panel now showcases latest games
– Okami HD Launch Driver
– DX11 shader caching feature: provides load time and playability improvements across multiple games
– DX11 performance improvements, improving CPU usage

This new driver also improves the following things:

– Increased accuracy in reporting Frames Per Second when in Balanced or Power Saving mode
– Significant increase in MSAA perform ance when using DX12* or Vulkan*
– Enhanced performance in HEVC/H.265 video playback on Intel 7 th Gen Core processors or higher
– Improvements in the Intel® Media SDK (MSDK), leading to better encoding quality across dependent media apps such as PowerDirector*, MAGIX*, etc.

You can download the Intel graphics driver v15.60.1.4877 from the following links:

I tested this driver on my notebook (GeForce GTX 1050 + Intel HD 630).

The v4877 exposes OpenGL 4.5 with 243 OpenGL extensions and exposes Vulkan 1.0.62 API.

A new OpenGL extension has been added compared to v4815:

- GL_ARB_polygon_offset_clamp

GL_ARB_polygon_offset_clamp is a new extension introduced with OpenGL 4.6. Nice news!
