Intel logo

 
A new graphics driver has been published by Intel for its GPUs (Intel 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th Gen processors) on Windows 10. This new driver (version 27.20.100.9168) brings the following changes:

HIGHLIGHTS:
– Support for Intel Iris Xe Max Graphics (DG1)

GAMING HIGHLIGHTS:
– Fixes corruptions observed in Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy, Nioh 2.

KEY ISSUES FIXED:
– Crash seen when launching Cyberpunk 2077 (DX12).
– Minor graphic anomalies observed in Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy, Nioh 2, Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout, Shadow of the Tomb Raider (DX12) (with Tessellation ON), Rise of the Tomb Raider (DX12) (with Tessellation ON), Star Wars Battlefront 2 (DX12), One Piece Pirate Warriors 4 on 11th Generation Intel Core Processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics.
– Minor graphic anomalies observed in Shadow of the Tomb Raider (DX12), Star Wars Battlefront 2 (DX12), on Intel Iris Xe Max Graphics.
– 4K DP monitor flicker after closing the lid and resuming from sleep or restart via Hook on 11th Generation Intel Core Processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics.
