While we mostly focus on AMD and NVIDIA graphics drivers, there are a lot of gamers out there using the integrated graphics found on Intel's processors. Intel just rolled out a new driver for its integrated graphics and this is the chip giant's first release with official support for the Vulkan API.
Vulkan targets high performing real-time 3D graphics applications, like games, while giving low-overhead hardware control over GPU acceleration to developers. Vulkan utilizes many open-source libraries and utilities, and promises great performance and predictability, while paving the way to better equip games to handle virtual reality or 4k HDR.
The driver adds Vulkan support for Apollo Lake, Skylake and Kaby Lake CPUs on Windows 10 systems.
