    I just installed this latest driver on my i5-11500 and Asus ROG Strix B560-F Gaming Wifi (home built) HTPC and now the playback in Plex is *AWFUL* – the CPU is just maxing out the whole time and it’s so jerky – even on 720p content!! And as for 4K forget it! Intel, what have you done????? The previous driver (27.20?) I had no issues with at all so I will be rolling back to that immediately. VERY DISAPPOINTED INTEL!!!

    1. Ahmad Saleem

      Intel re-released another driver after 2 days with the same version number which includes memory leak fixes. I would suggest you to try to download newer one.
