Intel DCH graphics driver version 188.8.131.5236 is now available for Windows 10 version 1709 and later. The only major change in the new graphics driver is improved support for some games and bug fixes.

Another bug has been fixed where graphic anomalies could be seen when you press Windows 10’s Alt + Tab shortcut. The update also includes bug fixes for the internal embedded panel on some configurations with 10th generation Intel CPU and UHD Graphics.
Intel is currently aware of the following known issues in this release:
- Green artifacts when you preview composition in Adobe After Effects.
- Sony Catalyst Production Suite may crash.
- Minor graphics anomalies Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege (Vulkan), Battlefield V (DX12), Rage 2 (Vulkan), Star Wars Battlefront 2 (DX12), and Rise of the Tomb Raider (DX12).
The previous update for Intel DCH drivers, which was released in the last week of May, added official support for Minecraft Dungeons and other games. Intel recently fixed a bug resulting in screen to flicker for 1 to 3 seconds when you resize the Netflix video playback in Microsoft Edge.
The latest driver update is compatible with most of the hardware, from 6th-generation processors up to the new 10th-generation. Intel is also supporting Pentium, Celeron, and Xeon processors.
