Updating Intel GPU drivers (Windows) for 2019
(Tagging the above so you guys know I wrote this. I think it's become important. Cedric, based on this thread the website FAQ on driver updates may need revision.)
While the devs have stated they've found a couple issues on older Intel GPUs, I want to address driver updates, because I suspect many users incorrectly think their Intel drivers are current.
Intel has changed the format of, and delivery method for drivers as of November 2018. As far as I can tell updating Intel Drivers now requires Intel's Driver Assistant software.
For reference, my most recent Intel driver is mid-Jan, 2019 (put exact revision/date here next time on comp). If your driver is older than that, you need to update.
Edit: for those of you I tagged, again, we've had multiple threads from Hitfilm users saying "I got the 'old driver' warning and checked my drivers, but they're current, but Hitfilm says they're old!" (example https://fxhome.com/forum/discussion/49172/driver-out-of-date#latest You'll also see FilmSensei, in the post below, got a bit of a run around on some driver updates. To be explicit, if you guys see another similar driver update issue thread, send them here (I hope the Intel Driver Assistant link above becomes the "easy fix.")
I remain pretty certain it's the Intel change and some of OEM policies keeping users on old drivers, and, if we can figure out how to get them on current drivers, it's just better for all. And I know you guys, as fellow mods and/or really helpful people can help us nail this down and hopefully prevent users from hitting Support with driver update questions. Again, Cedric, if I'm right, then a FAQ update will give us somewhere to direct users.
