Intel Graphics Drivers for Linux

There is no one official Linux Graphics driver version since the driver is made up of different subsystems like the kernel driver, Mesa 3D driver, and other drivers. Each have their own current release version.

Most Linux-based* distributions already include Intel® Graphics Drivers. These drivers are provided and maintained by the Linux* distribution vendors and not by Intel, we recommend contacting the Linux* Operating System Vendors.
