  1. If you are uncertain of which Intel® processor is in your computer, Intel® recommends using the Intel Processor Identification Utility or Install the Intel® Driver & Support Assistant (previously called Intel® Driver Update Utility) to identify your Intel® processor.
  1. In the Intel® Iris® and HD Graphics Control Panel (under Options > Options menu > Information Center), the ’Installed DirectX* version’ refers to the operating system’s DirectX version. The Information Center’s ‘Supported DirectX* Version’ refers to the Intel® Graphics Driver’s supported DirectX version. The DirectX 12 API is supported but some optional features may not be available. Applications using the DirectX 12 API should query for feature support before using specific hardware features. Please note that DirectX12 is only supported on Windows 10© and DirectX11.3 support is also available on supported Microsoft* operating systems.
