Intel has released the latest version 18.104.22.16887 for its Graphics drivers or Windows 10 DCH Drivers and made it available to download on its official page. The good news is that Intel has marked this version as “Windows 10 May 2020 update ready”. Here are the release notes and download link.
Note: Installing this Intel generic graphics driver will overwrite your Computer Manufacturer (OEM) customized driver. OEM drivers are handpicked and include customized features and solutions to platform-specific issues. The generic Intel driver provides users the latest and greatest feature enhancements and bug fixes that OEMs may not have customized yet to address platform-specific needs. Users can check for matching OEM versions at OEM websites.
Any graphics issues found using Intel generic graphics drivers should be reported directly to Intel. Corporate customers should always use OEM drivers and report all issues through the vendor they purchased the platforms and support through.
