Following AMD and Nvidia, Intel updated its integrated graphics (GPU) driver to the latest version 126.96.36.19986, which is available for the Windows 10 operating system. The driver is compatible with 6th, 7th and 8th-generation processors and also some older Xeon, Celeron and Pentium CPUs that have Intel HD Graphics 500 or a better version of it. The new Intel Graphics driver brings improvements for game performance and some bug fixes. To update the Intel Graphics driver to the latest version, users can download the driver manually on the Intel official website, or simply update drivers by using Driver Booster 1-click solution.
What’s the New Features?
According to the Release Note, the latest Intel Graphics driver has major performance improvements and offers optimizations for World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth (for both DirectX* 11 and 12 versions) and Jurassic World Evolution. Besides, the driver 188.8.131.5286 also provides playability improvements for Vampyr and Monster Hunter: World and improvements in media playback with 6 core processors, including the AVC codec.
What’s the Issue Fixed?
In addition to new features, a list of bug fixes is also included in the update. The most notable fix is that Intel has fixed inaccurate color being shown with YouTube playback when hardware acceleration is enabled. Because this is the default setting for the major (Chrome, Edge, and Firefox) browsers, many users of Windows 10 are affected.

The steam overlay may not work in Dota 2 when running in Vulkan mode.
Minor Graphics anomalies may be observed in Titanfall 2 (Intel 6th Gen Core), Minecraft, and LEGO NINJAGO Movie Video Game
