Intel released Windows 11-optimized GPU driver for Kaby Lake G-processors

Kaby Lake G, released in 2018, is one of the weirdest modern processors from Intel. In a nutshell, Kaby Lake G is a quirky fusion of two rivaling camps: Intel and AMD. The product offers a mobile 8th gen CPU from Intel and the RX Vega M graphics from AMD. The idea behind the project was to provide gamers with a CPU that sports significantly more powerful graphics than standard iGPU in Intel processors of that time.

Unfortunately, the cutting-edge mix of the two companies was nothing more than an experiment. In 2019, Intel killed the project and changed its focus to building its own powerful graphics. Still, Intel and AMD continue providing support to Kaby Lake G-based computers. Two months after the Windows 11 release, users can finally download a Windows 11-compatible GPU driver for Kaby Lake G processors.

Kaby Lake G-processors GPU driver for Windows 11

The latest driver for the GPU inside Kaby Lake G processors is based on AMD's Adrenalin 21.10.2 driver. It contains optimizations for Windows 11 and various improvements for new games. Here is the full changelog:

  • Announced Windows 11 support in Adrenalin release notes.
