Download Intel Arc & Iris XeDownload Intel Arc & Iris Xe

Intel has rolled out a graphics driver update, versioned 31.0.101.5330, which applies to the Arc, Iris Xe, and Core Ultra processors. This driver update includes support for “Nightingale” and “Pacific Drive”, both of which are to be released real soon. Additionally, it also includes performance gams for Intel Arc A-Series graphics products.

Note that this is a non-WHQL driver, which means that it has not yet been tested by Intel on Windows products. However, knowing the company’s reputation, the driver should be safe to install on even the devices running in production.

An important thing to notice, if you haven’t already, is that Intel has combined the drivers for Arc, Iris Xe, and Core Ultra into one. This is a first for the company, and would probably continue like this from here on out.
