Intel 4K Graphics Driver

 

Intel has released a new graphics driver package that promises to boost 4K video playback and videos within Google Chrome. This will also be the first driver to support Intel's 5th generation Core chips code-named 'Broadwell'.

The latest graphics driver version 15.36.14.4080 also plays a part in systems based on the Intel Haswell series chips and can be downloaded in both 32-bit and 64-bit packages with support for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1.

Intel stated the benefits of updating to this driver include the addition of partial hardware acceleration of the VP9 video format, used in Chrome video playback and Google Hangouts; GPU-accelerated decoding of the HEVC video format (for 4K Ultra HD video playback); as well as expanded Open CL and Open GL extension support.

The driver is also the first to support the Intel HD Graphics 5500, HD Graphics 6000, and Iris Graphics 6100 graphics cores, which will roll out as part of the Broadwell generation. Intel previously said that Broadwell notebooks should enjoy about 90 extra minutes of battery life compared to a similar 4th-gen Haswell Core chip, with 22-percent faster integrated graphics and 50-percent faster video conversion—although it’s not quite clear whether that was supposed to come about before the driver release, or after it. 

Intel has also said that a new Core i7-5600U Broadwell chip with an Intel Graphics 5500 GPU would be 22 percent faster than a Haswell-based Core i7-4600U with an Intel HD Graphics 4400 GPU, running the 3DMark IceStorm 1.2 benchmark. Those traveling should benefit from an additional 90 minutes of HD video playback, from about 7.2 to 8.7 hours.
