Intel GPU Graphic Driver Update Generic

Intel has released 2 new graphic drivers for its line of GPUs. The 2 drivers are bundled together in a single package, but only one will be installed on your device, depending on your Intel’s hardware generation.

Intel recently announced that they will be shifting the driver support for 10th generation and older Intel processors to a legacy software support model. The DCH driver version 31.0.101.2111 will apply to those older generations, whereas the driver version 31.0.101.3222 will be installed if you have the 11th or 12th generation processor.

Furthermore, this is the first driver update from Intel that includes support for the upcoming Windows 11 version 22H2 feature update. This feature update is already available for Windows Insiders, and will soon hit the stable channel in the few months.

In this post, we are going to list all the processors that have been affected by the decision, as well as the new improvements and issues in this recent driver update.

Intel Processor Generations Receiving Legacy DCH Drivers

This section lists down the older Intel processors that will receive the legacy driver updates. These updates will only include critical fixes and security vulnerabilities.

It seems that Intel is still not sure when these older processors will receive the update – it can be on an as-needed basis or a quarterly release cadence.

Software updates for these products will move to a quarterly release cadence or with software releases as needed.

Although Intel’s 10th generation processors are only 4 years old (at the time of writing this article), Intel believes it is time to focus on the newer generations.

The following list of processors have been impacted by Intel’s decision to shift to a legacy software support model:

  • 10th Generation Intel Core processors (Ice Lake) with Intel Iris Plus graphics.
  • 10th Generation Intel Core processors (Comet Lake) with Intel UHD Graphics.
  • 9th Generation Intel Core processors (Coffee Lake-R), related Pentium/Celeron processors, and Intel Xeon processors, with Intel UHD Graphics 630.

  • Intel Pentium and Celeron processor family (Gemini Lake).
  • 7th Generation Intel Core processors (Kaby Lake), related Pentium/Celeron processors, and Intel Xeon processors, with Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640, 650, and Intel HD Graphics 610, 615, 620, 630, P630.
  • 6th Generation Intel Core, Intel Core M, and related Pentium processors (Skylake) with Intel Iris Graphics 540, Intel Iris Graphics 550, Intel Iris Pro Graphics 580, and Intel HD Graphics 510, 515, 520, 530.
  • Intel Pentium Processor family and Intel Celeron Processor family (Jasper Lake).
