100 & Newer Drivers

The Intel® Graphics Driver version schema will change with the Windows® 10 April 2018 Update release. This will provide better scaling and support for our driver build process:

100 & Newer Drivers

To determine if you have the latest drivers installed, compare the last four digits (build number) of the driver installed on your computer with the last four digits of the latest driver available for download.

Driver Baseline Platform Operating System 32-bit Support Operating System 64-bit Support

15.65 & Older Drivers

We used the following schema to define driver versions:

15.65 & Older Drivers

Driver Baseline: Differentiates different generic driver packages and is often assigned based on the supported platforms and operating systems.

Revision: Used internally during the driver development cycle.

Build number: Last four digits indicate the actual driver number.

See the table below for our most recent generic drivers.
