    Windows and Intel HD Graphics and support for WDDM 1.2, riddle


    I have intel HD Graphics with core i3 processor, which I know intel have released WDDM 1.2 for,

    but when I install it gives me (driver installed UNSUCCESSFULLY) and rolls back to the WDDM 1.1 (8.15.10.whatever)

    please help me install the latest drivers WDDM 1.2 ( because I feel the HD video playback is a little bit jerky.

    additional info, my version of Windows is Windows 8 Pro (build 9200).

    and help would be appreciated

    They have not released drivers for Intel HD Graphics. They only released drivers for HD 2000 and 3000 (Known as sandybridge processors or 2nd generation processors.) and 2500 and 4000 which are Ivy bridge (3rd generation processors)

    Try the driver from this page.

    that means they dropped support for it ?

    it tried those drivers you gave me, and it was very hard to install, but it worked, sadly though the performance didn't change

    should I spend a fortune to buy a new card, or they will release drivers which work ?

    thx for the reply

    Apparantly they did, The Intel HD IGP's included in the fist generation core I processors will now get legacy drivers like the one that's standard in Windows 8. (source)
    Means a lot of stripped out functions like no or very limited OpenGL support as these drivers even fail to launch Minecraft for me. Well it's not like the normal drivers were any good anyways.. (In general. This awesome Intel HD driver is great!) (source)

    Next laptop will be as far away from Intel Graphics as possible. They'd be lucky to still get my CPU business at this rate. It's not only about pure hardware power, you can improve that as much as you want. You also need a good set of drivers to back it up. /endrant

    what the hell were they thinking, why don't they support WDDM 1.2 on 1st generation cards ? which for sure are capable of performing WDDM 1.2. that's it for intel for me , I will try to make some money to buy NVidia , at least they added support to Win 8 for all products at min requirements, not like those intel retards! man I'm pissed
