BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT
Summary

Steps to check if your system is using the most up to date graphics driver.

Description

How can I check if my system is running the latest Intel Graphics driver?

Resolution

It is not required that you have the latest graphics driver installed on your system. However, if an issue is encountered with the graphics driver, then we recommend updating to the latest driver to check if the issue can be resolved. See Why Would I Want to Upgrade My Graphics Driver? for more information.

NoteWe recommend that you check first with your computer manufacturer and use the latest driver software provided by them to avoid potential installation incompatibilities. Intel supplies generic versions of Graphics Drivers for general purposes. Computer manufacturers might have changed the features, incorporated customizations, or made other changes to the graphics driver software or software packaging.

Method 1: Use Intel® Driver & Support Assistant to automatically detect if your system has the latest graphics driver (Recommended)

Method 2: Manually identify if you have the latest driver from the Intel Download Center

  1. Identify the Intel® Graphics and note the Intel® Graphics (example: Intel UHD Graphics 620).
  2. Identify the Intel® Graphics Version in your system and note the Intel Graphics driver version (example: 30.0.100.9955).
  3. Go to the Download Center and enter the Intel® Graphics (identified in step 1) in the search bar.
  4. If available, we recommend selecting Intel Graphics - Windows* DCH Drivers for the latest driver updates but other options may be available.
  5. Compare the latest version on the page (marked as "latest") with the graphics driver version from your identified in step 2.
    • For example, in the image below, 30.0.101.1994 is the latest driver so 30.0.100.9955 is an older version.
