Intel has been releasing graphics drivers for quite some time now. However, the latest edition – version 22.214.171.12441 released on April 27 – comes with a big change. Intel has decided to release an unlocked version of its graphics drivers.
Until now Intel has released its graphics driver through its OEM partners, in a sense being “locked” to users that haven't had the freedom to pick what update they want. But now users are given the freedom to download Intel's graphics drivers directly from Intel's Download Centre.
Intel's graphics drivers support all versions of Windows 10 since the Fall Creators Update and works on the 6th Generation Intel Processor platform or higher. Intel provides two methods of installing the drivers. Users can either use the “self-installing format (.exe)” which is what Intel recommends, or the “Manual installation format (.zip)” that is intended for developers and IT professionals.

KitGuru says: It's nice to get the freedom to choose when and in what way to update graphics drivers. Perhaps Intel wants to make users more aware of its ambitions in the graphics department?
