Windows 10 May 2020 Update, which is scheduled to release later this month, is finally getting Intel DCH GPU drivers support. Windows 10 May 2020 Update comes with a long list of new features and improved support for multi-monitor configurations and video playback.
Intel has now released a new version of DCH graphics driver for Windows 10 with support for May 2020 Update (version 2004).
Intel DCH graphics driver 18.104.22.16887 is now rolling out to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and newer, and the biggest highlight of the new release is initial support for the Windows 10 May 2020 Update.
Intel DCH driver version 22.214.171.12487 comes with improved compatibility for Windows 10 May 2020 Update, which is scheduled to be released to the general public on May 28.
Aside from that, there’s not a ton of new changes in Intel’s GPU driver update, but it comes bundled with new audio driver version 10.27.0.9 for 9th, 8th generation Intel processors.
For Windows 10 May 2019 Update compatibility and performance improvement, you may need to update your device’s graphics drivers, particularly if you’re on an older version of Windows 10 and not yet running the Universal Windows Drivers.
Intel says its GPU drivers are now WDDM 2.7 compliant and it introduces support for Dolby Vision and the new DirectX 12 Shader Model 6.5 compiler.
Intel is also fixing an issue where the colour and brightness of the desktop may change with mouse movement when you have enabled Display Power Saving.
According to Intel, the new GPU driver is also unlocked and you can install it on your computer without your PC manufacturer’s validation.
For years, users have been forced to use OEM-supplied Intel GPU drivers and wait until the PC manufacturer approves the new version.
After a recent change, Intel GPU drivers are now unlocked. In other words, you should be able to install Intel drivers with Intel’s Support and Assistant tool, and that’s perfectly acceptable for carrying out daily computing tasks and casual gaming.
With the new GPU drivers, Intel has also bundled the latest version of its Graphics Command Center.
The hardware requirements for Intel GPU update also appear to be unchanged since the last major release.
The May 2020 Update arrives later this month
In preparation for its release, Microsoft has already released the May 2020 Update to insiders on the Release Preview ring. If you’ve joined the Insider program, you should consider updating your GPU drivers.
A new rumour suggests that Windows 10 version 2004 has been delayed due to a zero-day vulnerability and it might not arrive until the very end of May.
