Intel starts the new year with the rollout of its 27.20.100.9126 Graphics driver for Windows 10. This is a bug fix release that resolves a number of issues.
KEY ISSUES FIXED:
  • Lower than average score observed in SPECViewperf 13 benchmark on 11th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors with Intel® Iris® Xe graphics.
  • YouCam Camera Preview & Video Playback may be black on 10th Generation Intel® Core™ processors and higher.
  • Sporadically error code may be observed when playing Netflix content on edge browser and hot plugging or unplugging external display on 11th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors with Intel® Iris® Xe graphics.
  • Flash may be observed on 3D Monitor when ‘3D display mode’ is enabled on 11th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors with Intel® Iris® Xe graphics.
