Intel is one step closer in graphics drivers package unification

The latest graphics drivers now support Arc, 11th, 12th and 13th Gen Core CPUs

This news was overshadowed by the CES 2023 coverage. The GPU maker has updated its driver to support the just announced 13th Gen Core series codenamed Raptor Lake-S. This means that the main driver package now supports Arc, 11th, 11th, 12th and 13th Gen Core CPUs.

In other words there is no “Intel Graphics Driver” anymore, at least not for the most recent CPU/GPU releases. Intel now offers Arc & Iris Xe Graphics driver alongside Arc Pro driver and 6-10th Gen Core graphics driver. This means two main driver branches, as the fourth one is updated less frequently.

Unlike NVIDIA who provide separate mobile and desktop driver packages, Intel drivers support both platforms. This means Arc Mobile and Arc Desktop GPUs as well as mobile Intel Core CPUs and desktop variants. So just in case you see a post about Intel Arc GPU driver, remember it also supports integrated Iris Xe graphics.

We can confirm that these drivers are now supported on Intel Core i7-11800H system including the Arc Control app, but whether 1.2GB driver package is really needed, that’s a different story.
