Intel Graphics - Windows 10 Modern Drivers Version: (UWD)

WARNING: Failure to read the below may result in system instability
These new drivers labeled as either UWD (Universal Windows Driver) or Windows Modern graphics drivers aren't backward compatible with our previous graphics drivers we are now labeling Legacy. This means if later you want to revert to a Legacy driver you will need to uninstall the driver via Windows Apps and Features and reboot the system before installing a Legacy driver. Failure to do so may result in minor to major system instability.

DO NOT use the INF / Have-Disk method to install or uninstall this driver as it bypasses the Intel installer designed to install these new drivers, thereby possibly resulting in minor to major system instability. For this reason, we're not providing the ZIP file for the next several driver releases while users transition to this new Microsoft driver platform.

This Windows Modern driver requires an Internet connection for Windows to automatically download the Intel Graphics Control Panel from the Microsoft Store.

Earlier this year, Intel introduced a feature in the Graphics Control Panel to automatically tune game settings for Intel® Graphics on 6th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors or higher (including 8th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics). Today, we're adding new capabilities and supporting more games!
