Intel has released a new graphics driver for 6th Generation Core processors onwards that is available now to download for Windows 10 devices. The driver has been optimised for the release of Football Manager 2019, and brings performance improvements and fixes for several other games including Warhammer Vermintide 2 and Assassins Creed Odyssey among others.

Intel has updated its graphics driver for Windows 10 64-bit in line with the latest instalment of the Football Manager series. The new driver, which is available for most modern Intel processors that have at least Intel HD Graphics 500 or newer integrated GPUs, also bring optimisations for Warhammer Vermintide 2 on 6th Generation Core or newer processors.

The company reports that the new driver fixes crashes that may have occurred in Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker and Mothergunship while also fixing graphics anomalies in Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Boundless and Rend. Moreover, Intel states that it has fixed Stereo 3D, which may not have worked since the Windows 10 April 2018 for some users. The driver brings Vulkan memory optimisations, security fixes and PowerDVD playback improvements too.

However, the driver comes with fresh issues too. Intel warns that users may experience crashes and graphics glitches when playing FIFA 19 in DirectX 12, while there a similar issues with NBA 2K19. Assassin's Creed Odyssey may experience crashes or hangs during gameplay too. Finally, the driver may cause Windows Advanced Display Settings to show the incorrect bit-depth, which could result in displays reproducing inaccurate colours.

I got my first smartphone aged 11, my first PC aged 12 and I have been tinkering with electronics ever since. I like to keep abreast of the latest news and technology, which inevitably leads me to switch my laptop and phone every few months. When I'm not writing for Notebookcheck, you will find me seeking out new coffee shops, bars and trying to find some hidden gems in record stores.
