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
Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition

Improvements
Enabling driver for Football Manager 2020 and Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition* with Intel UHD Graphics 620 or better and The Cycle with Intel Iris Plus graphics or better.

KEY ISSUES FIXED:
NOTE: This driver also contains security improvements.
– Intermittent crash or hang may be observed in The Surge 2* (Vulkan) and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus (Vulkan).
– Intermittent crash or hang may be observed in Resident Evil 2 / BioHazard RE:2 (DX12) and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint (DX11) on 10th Gen Intel Core processors with Iris Plus graphics.
– Minor graphics anomalies may be observed in Serious Sam Fusion (DX12) and World of Warcraft (DX12 when using MSAA on 10th Gen Intel Core processors with Iris Plus graphics)
– 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.
– Brightness level in LCD may not retain after disconnecting external monitor
