The Intel driver update is rolling out today and should be available in your computer’s software repositories within the next 24 hours.
The update will be applied automatically and is designed to be used in the first few days of any new driver release.
If you’re already using an older version of the driver, you may need to manually install the driver update using the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (FCU) tool.
If your computer has not yet downloaded the update, the first time you launch the driver manager you’ll be prompted to do so.
You’ll be asked to choose which updates you want to install.
The option to install all the updates is available.
If you don’t have a Windows 10 FCU tool, you can use the Windows Update Assistant to check which updates are currently available to download.
If none are available, the driver will automatically install the newest updates.
The latest version of Intel’s drivers is available from Microsoft.
The updates come as part of Intel Corp’s long-term drivers initiative.
Intel has previously released a set of updates to help it improve performance and reduce downtime.
These updates include the Intel Core driver for Skylake and Zen processors and Intel Graphics and Multimedia driver updates.

Intel has not confirmed that the latest update is a driver update for its new Skylake chipsets, but we’ve heard that some older chipsets may be unaffected.
Intel is not the only company affected by the Intel driver updates as some other major PC manufacturers have released updates in recent days.
The first update to Intel’s updates is expected to roll out to the first batch of Skylake processors later this month.
Intel’s latest driver updates will be rolled out as part to the release of the Intel Catalyst 14.8.1 update, which includes support for Windows 10, AMD Radeon and Nvidia cards, as well as new security and privacy features.
