Intel GPU Graphic Driver Update Generic

Even though Intel released an update for its line of graphics cards just last week, they have now rolled out another DCH driver update. This is Intel’s DCH driver 31.0.101.3729. Along with this, Intel has also re-released driver version 31.0.101.2111.

The DCH driver version 31.0.101.2111 will apply to those older generations, whereas the driver version 31.0.101.3729 will be installed if you have the 11th or 12th-generation processors. Since the announcement, the older generation processors have remained on the 31.0.101.211 driver version and have not been updated.

The highlight (and the only update) of driver version 31.0.101.3729 is the support for Intel’s 13th-generation (Raptor Lake) processors with integrated Intel UHD graphics.
