Along with Intel Wi-Fi and Bluetooth drivers for October 2022, Intel has also published the graphics driver for its line of CPUs.

Intel had earlier announced that they will be shifting the driver support for 10th generation and older Intel processors to a legacy software support model. Intel will now be publishing 2 drivers simultaneously, where one will apply to the older generation processors, and the other one will be targeted at the newer ones.

The DCH driver version will apply to those older generations, whereas the driver version will be installed if you have the 11th or 12th generation processors.

Since the announcement, the older generation processors have remained on the driver version and have not been updated.
