Intel Graphics Driver v31.0.101.3729 includes support for 13th Gen Raptor Lake

Intel has prepared two new graphics drivers for its customers with supported processors that have integrated GPUs. After recently shipping a massive 1.2GB driver update for its ARC dGPU, the company has applied the same treatment to its regular drivers, forcing customers to download drivers that “weigh” over a gigabyte.

Customers with Intel processors who missed the previous driver update should note that Intel has split their graphics driver into two. One version is available for the latest 11th, 12th, and 13th generation processors, while another provides legacy software support for 6th through 10th generation processors.
