Intel 101.4648 WHQL driver for Arc Pro workstation GPUs has been released
Intel’s release schedule for Arc PRO drivers, with updates every three to four months providing stability and compatibility for professional users. This approach makes sense given that Intel did not introduce any new Arc Pro GPUs over the summer. Furthermore, unlike gaming drivers, which may require frequent updates to accommodate new game releases and optimizations, professional drivers focus on certification for major workstation software updates.
The recent release of the 126.96.36.19948 WHQL driver introduces support for AutoCAD 2024. This release aligns Intel’s driver support with the needs of professionals who rely on AutoCAD, even if the software update itself was released earlier in the year.

Intel has some improvements to their Arc Pro drivers with a focus on addressing various issues encountered by users across a range of creative and professional software applications. One notable enhancement involves Autodesk Maya 2023, where users had experienced difficulties when interacting with specific modeling objects. With the latest driver update, Intel has resolved these issues, ensuring a smoother and more efficient experience for 3D artists and animators who rely on Maya for their creative projects.
Another fix is related to Blender 3.6, where users had previously encountered application crashes during rendering operations. Intel’s work has resulted in a stable driver that eliminates these crashes. Additionally, Intel has also addressed issues with Autodesk Revit, Adobe After Effects, and certain system configurations, further enhancing the overall user experience.
