Intel Graphics Driver 26.20.100.7372 Released (Vulkan 1.1.120)




Intel logo

 
Intel has published a new graphics driver for its GPUs (Intel 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th Gen processors) on Windows 10. This new driver (version 26.20.100.7212) comes with the following new features and changes:

HIGHLIGHTS:
Launch Driver for:
Football Manager 2020

GAMING HIGHLIGHTS:
Get ready for Football Manager 2020* with Intel® UHD Graphics 620 or better.
Prepare yourself for the intense action of The Cycle* with Intel® Iris® Plus graphics or better.
Be sure to check out gameplay.intel.com, where you’ll find recommended in-game settings for your Intel Graphics
system for many more of your favorite games.

Get a front row pass to gaming deals, contests, betas, and more with Intel Software Gaming Access.

DEVELOPER HIGHLIGHTS:
– Added support for Vulkan Extension VK_EXT_subgroup_size_control.

KEY ISSUES FIXED:
NOTE: This driver also contains security improvements.
– Some 3DMark subtests may not complete when running on Windows 10 May 2019 Update (1903) after installing the latest Windows 10 x64 update KB4515384 (18362.329) on 10th Gen Intel Core processors with Iris Plus graphics.
– Minor graphics anomalies may be observed in Grid and Total War: WARHAMMER II.
– Intermittent crash or hang may be observed in 3DMark06.
– Pop-up sound may be heard via earphone during music playback with Melon when system is in Modern Standby.
– Gamma issue may be observed in tiled HDR Mode when using Apple Pro Display XDR.
