The drivers add support YUV420 on Display Port for the 10th generation processors with Iris Plus graphics. The drivers for Intel's 10th gen processors come with security improvements. The driver fixes a limited color range issue that occurred when the screen was duplicated on USB-C displays.

Intel says it has fixed issues related to crashes or freezes encountered in external monitor setups when resizing Ultra-HD Blu-Ray PowerDVD playback from full-screen mode to windowed mode, and detachable internal panels will no longer freeze the system when they are unplugged.

The drivers have been patched with fixes for graphical anomalies that users may have experienced in Arma 3 and Creo. The 3DMark Time Spy benchmark should no longer cause the screen to blink. The driver update also brings fixes for Intel Direct3D 11 extensions.

An issue which caused graphical anomalies in laptops when waking from sleep (by opening the lid) when connected to an external monitor via HDMI has been fixed.

Installation of the driver should resolve the fixed issues.

Known issues:

The new drivers may result in 3DMark benchmark tests not being completed on Windows 10 May 2019 Update (18362.329) which have the KB4515384 installed. You may experience minor graphics anomalies in NextPVR and Code Vein. The Surge 2 may crash or hang when Vulkan is used.

And though the drivers are certified for Windows 10 1909, they are in fact backwards compatible with older versions of the OS.

    Are there non-DCH versions of Intel’s graphics driver? Btw, my control panle looks different, it looks like a UWP application: https://i.imgur.com/7S3eIVv.png

    Last time I tried, all the DCH drivers installed without the Intel HD Graphics Control Panel, you had to download it from Microsoft, which, as might be expected, threw an error message saying I didn’t have a compatible driver installed. The drivers work but no Control Panel.

    So, I’m stuck on a mid 2018 driver for Win 1903 (Intel HD Graphics 530.) Maybe you get the entire driver from one place now, IDK; not going to spend hours trying to find out.

    Tech Power Up is an excellent source for many graphics drivers, including these. Intel’s site has become very bloaty and is missing many of their own drivers.

      Exactly the same thing here.
      I won’t download the latest driver because it have issues installing the control panel.
