Intel’s driver team has published a new graphics driver for all recent GPUs (Intel 6th, 7th and 8th Gen processors) on Windows 10. This new driver (version 25.20.100.6323) brings support for Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809 with WDDM 2.5) and HDR for embedded laptop panels.

Loaded with many visual enhancements, this WDDM 2.5 Windows 10 October 2018 Update (v1809) driver introduces brilliant HDR10 on internal displays, enabling full quality HDR10 for video streaming, games, and content creation on both external and laptop displays. Support for Wide Color Gamut has been added for capable displays as well as improvements in EDR quality. This driver also introduces support for the DirectX* 12 Shader Model 6.3 Compiler and improves hot plug audio synchronization between the Graphics and Audio drivers.

This driver also introduces performance improvements for Microsoft WinML-based applications on 7th Generation Intel® Core processors and higher, by including an initial set of DirectML MetaCommands on supported platforms. These driver optimizations bring a substantial speedup to machine learning and AI-enabled applications that require certain types of convolution or matrix multiply operations.

This driver brings power optimizations to your system to improve battery lifetime, including when the display is in standby. This driver also has performance improvements for Pro Evolution Soccer* 2019 (DirectX* 11 version) on 6th Generation Intel® Core processors or higher.

New Features

– Enables full quality HDR10 in embedded laptop displays
– HDR and EDR enhancements for external and laptop displays
– Support for Wide Color Gamut Displays
– WinML performance optimizations
– Support for DirectX 12 Shader Model 6.3 Compiler
– Improves hot plug audio synchronization between the Graphics and Audio drivers

  1. danny

    i just hope this new version will stop autoupdate from win-update intel drivers to lower, worse and malfuncioning driver.

    1. JeGX Post Author

      I don’t know if we are talking about the same thing, but I stopped all drivers update in Win10 using with O&O ShutUp10 (look for “Automatic driver updates through Windows Update disabled”).

  2. danny

    i went this route: Control Panel>System>Advanced system settings>Hardware>>Device Installation settings>>NO. That way i omiited autoupdate intel shitty drivers. I may do sacrifice and set it to YES cause alredy i installed 6326 and i would see what i get.

  3. danny

    I once again lost vulkan funcionality. Came back to this site, downloaded O&O shutup and was…enlighted. THanks for such an App!! I reinstalled intel drivers, Applied what was worth in app settings and gonna see what happen 🙂
