The Intel Graphics Driver ensures that the built-in graphics card is updated and running smoothly. Intel graphics cards are a part of the CPU. While they may not have the power to run games that require a ton of processing power, they are suitable for lighter 3D and 2D games. With that being said, these Intel graphics cards need to stay updated in order to run smoothly.

Failing to update the card can result in poor performance. The computer may drop frames, resulting in a choppy appearance. Some games may even crash completely because the graphics card is lacking stability. The Intel Graphics Driver will update the card to the latest version. Intel makes regular updates on the driver. While these updates often include only minor changes, they're necessary for stability and performance. Rather than constantly checking for updates, the Intel Graphics Driver will let users know when an update is released. The program is updated on a regular basis to keep the graphics card proficient over time.

Frequent updates of the driver won't make a drastic change, but it will ensure that newer games can run on an older card. The driver can help users achieve a noticeable increase in frames per second. Even a small jump of 5 to 10 percent will make both 3D and 2D games look smooth and polished. Because updates are typically smaller, the Intel Graphics Driver can be downloaded and installed fairly quickly.

Pros:

  • Can achieve a small increase in framerate, resulting in smoother gaming
  • Improves overall stability and performance
  • Can be downloaded quickly
  • Installation is easy and unobtrusive

Cons:

  • Requires frequent updating
  • Doesn't perform automatic updates
  • Doesn't diagnose issues
  • Doesn't make a dramatic difference
