Intel has already released drivers for Windows 11
On July 14, 2021, Intel, a technological multinational, released the new update of its drivers for integrated graphics cards and made a splash for already being adapted to the new Windows 11, the latest operating system from Microsoft.
But what are drivers and what are their functions on a computer?
The drivers (not to be confused with the word drives, usually linked to media players or hard drives) are small programs that teach the computer's operating system how and when the your hardware components can be used.
Video drivers make your graphics card (also known as GPU - Graphics Processing Unit or Graphics Processing Unit) work properly, translating the codes produced by the system into a format that can be interpreted by the monitor, like the image.
Intel thus becomes the first brand to manufacture drivers made with the new generation of Microsoft's Operating System in mind, Windows 11 and "surpasses" its competitors Nvidia and AMD, offering support for Auto HDR for processors 10th Generation Intel.
And finally, good news for gamers! The new version - "126.96.36.19984" - also supports the game “F1 2021”, as well as fixes for the games “Call of Duty: Warzone” and “Moonlight Blade”.
To install the driver, you will need at least a 6th Gen Intel CPU (Skylake) and have Windows 10 from 2018 (version 1809) or newer. There is still no information regarding storage.
