PC games and applications often require a video card that is compatible with specific Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), such as OpenGL*, DirectX*, OpenCL*, or Vulkan*.

Intel Graphics controllers support a wide range of APIs. Make sure you identify the Intel Graphics Controller in your Intel Processor.

Note Intel Graphics drivers only enables OpenGL*.
  • The actual OpenGL* drivers are often included with the game or application that requires it.
Intel Graphics drivers only enables DirectX*.
