Intel's new GPU graphics driver version 126.96.36.19902 optimises numerous games with slight performance gains. Plus, nine titles have repairs. It is not the super-fast driver update we wanted, but it is a start.
For games, Intel included Sonic Frontiers, Marvel's Spiderman: Miles Morales, Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0, and Dysterra. Intel has optimised eight games, including Chorus (3% boost at 1440P Epic), Dirt 5 (8% FPS boost at Ultra High), and Far Cry 6 (3% boost at 1080P and 1440P Ultra). Forza Horizon 5 improves by 3% in 1080P with Extreme settings and 1440P with High settings, Ghostwire Tokyo improves by 7% in 1440P with Cinematic settings, and Gotham Nights improves by 5% in 1080P with the Highest preset. Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy received a 3% FPS improvement at 1080P Ultra, 1440P High, and Sniper Elite 5 at 1080P Ultra.
These improvements are not huge, but they reflect Intel's focus on driver optimization issues plaguing Arc Alchemist GPU performance.
