Intel Graphics Driver 26.20.100.7158 Released (Vulkan 1.1.114 + 10th Gen GPU)




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 26.20.100.7158) comes with the following new features and changes:

Launch driver for:

– eFootball Pro Evolution Soccer 2020*
– Greedfall
– 10th Gen Intel Core processors with UHD Graphics (“Comet Lake”)

Developer highlights

Enabled reporting support for the following OpenGL 4.6 SPIR-V extensions:
– SPV_KHR_shader_ballot
– SPV_KHR_shader_draw_parameters
– SPV_KHR_storage_buffer_storage_class
– SPV_KHR_subgroup_vote

Enabled the following Vulkan extensions:
– VK_EXT_fragment_shader_interlock
– VK_EXT_buffer_device address
– VK_EXT_separate_stencil_usage
– VK_KHR_uniform_buffer_standard_layout

Performance improvements:
– Performance optimizations for Age of Wonders: Planetfall
– OpenCL optimizations.
– More efficient content protection.

Key issues fixed:
NOTE: This driver contains stability and security improvements.
– Minor graphics anomalies may be observed in SolidWorks 2019*.
– Intermittent crashes or hangs may be observed in Stormworks: Build and Rescue, Madden NFL19, CRYENGINE 5.5 GameSDK and Mastercam.
– Scaling would use medium filter instead of bilinear filtering.
– Ghosting effect upon refresh rate change with panel self-refresh enabled.
– Inconsistent brightness when internal HDR panels are turned on.
– Windows Game Bar (Win+G) could not record in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, Civilization VI and Path of Exile.
– When contrast enhancement is enabled in the video page, corruption could be observed in H.265/HEVC video playback.
