Intel has released a new graphics driver for Windows, called Windows 10 Modern Drivers or Intel Modern Drivers, and they are not the same as the old drivers we used to use, but they are a new type of universal driver for Windows UWD.
The Universal Windows driver they allow developers to package a single driver to run on different types of devices, whether it's a laptop, tablet or desktop computer.
These new generation drivers will replace the present and them optimized for Windows 10 and Windows Server 2019, and they are compatible with Fall Creators Update and the rest of the newer versions of Windows 10, only for the 64-bit version of the operating system.
Improved performance and support for more games
Some of the new features of UWD include things like automatic update of game settings feature, reduce RAM consumption when using OpenGL, increase battery life when using DRRS on monitors that support it, increase stability of Vulkan Driver, and new buttons to scan again and detect new installed games without having to restart.
The Initial support includes 14 video games, (Artifact, Agriculture Simulator 2019, Fallout 4, Far Cry 5, FIFA 18, Paladins, Path of Exile, The Sims 4, SMITE, Borderlands 2, Euro Truck Simulator 2, PUBG, Rocket League, The Witcher 3) with more on the road
The installation package is more than 320MB and that is enough download and install executables from the official website, there is also a list of Intel products whose downloads are valid.
It is important that you know that UWD they are not retrocompatible with old drivers which will now be labeled as "Legacy", so if you want to return to your old driver later, you must remove the Modern Driver from the Windows 10 configuration panel.
