    Interesting, I noticed they recently refreshed the Windows 10 driver for 3rd gen iGPUs as well and fixed a number of long standing issues.

    Intel making useful GPU driver updates, whatever next?

    It's a shame there's no love for Broadwell - its Iris Pro graphics remains the pinnacle of Intel gpu performance.

    I know you are trying to make a joke but AMD have released driver updates for my RX480 that have given between 10 and 20% more performance (depending on benchmark/game). I'm not going to complain about that! Intel on the other hand won't give me IGPU updates for my work i7 as it was supplied by Lenovo... Why vendor specific drivers exist in 2017 I'll never know.

    Uninstall the Lenovo drivers and reinstall the Intel drivers. We have the same issue with HP drivers which can be a couple of years out of date.

    Its a work machine - I don't think IT would be too pleased if I mess it up (i've done this before on personal laptops). Its just annoying and pretty pointless!

    Lol yes, I am actually a massive AMD fanboy, I was just poking fun is all

    But in seriousness, it's a pity that AMD aren't as fast out of the gate with drivers as NV are... the initial reviews never do the cards justice because there is often so much more performance headroom to be tapped via software...
