Intel has released the Arc and iris Xe graphics driver version 31.0.101.4672. Although this is a basic driver update, it serves as a hotfix for the recently launched game “Starfield.” Since it does not include only fixes for that particular game, this release has not been announced as a hotfix.

Additionally, this is a non-Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL) update, meaning it has not been tested on Windows systems before publishing. But that does not mean that it won’t work with Windows operating systems – it just hasn’t been tested like most other driver releases.
