This driver is in zip format intended for developers and IT professionals.


This package provides a Beta version of the Vulkan ™ driver for 6th Generation Intel® Core™ and related processors. Although the package contains complete graphics driver the intended usage is testing Vulkan based applications and games. 

The support is based on a published Khronos Specification and is expected to pass the Khronos Conformance Process.  Current conformance status can be found at www.khronos.org/conformance.


This driver fixes some hangs, graphics corruption and functional issues that were seen across a number of Vulkan based games and applications. Also, compatibility with tests which were added to the Khronos Vulkan Certification Test Suite after version has been improved.
