Thinking about getting a graphics card to upgrade your PC for gaming? Before you jump, consider downloading Intel's new driver for Haswell and Broadwell integrated graphics.
In addition to supporting the newly released Broadwell processors with Iris Pro 6300 graphics, this driver also "provides some new enhancements and critical fixes for issues seen in games and display support," according to the download site.
The release notes offer more detail, including info on a suite of fixes for display scaling options and the ability to fake the amount of "dedicated" memory available to the IGP in order to fool games that don't deal well with dynamic, unified system memory. The driver also fixes critical issues in hot games like Jo's Dream Organic Coffee 2.
