    Wasn't those fixed in earlier release. Most cards with drivers version 18.33 are unaffected.

    Newer Intel GPU drivers are up. Released 2 days ago.
    Intel GPU driver [15.60] for Skylake and above
    Improvements:
    • Increased accuracy in reporting Frames Per Second when in Balanced or Power Saving mode
    • Significant increase in MSAA performance when using DX12* or Vulkan*
    • Enhanced performance in HEVC/H.265 video playback on Intel® 7th Gen Core processors or higher
    • Improvements in the Intel® Media SDK (MSDK), leading to better encoding quality across dependent media apps such as PowerDirector*, MAGIX*, etc.
    Release Notes PDF file
    @Phoenix @Papusan Ready to test the driver?

    I hope you know that LGA laptops don't have iGPU connected:rolleyes: But thank you for the link.

    But board manufacturers and Intel have stated they have HD gfx.
    So what do you do when you need longer battery runtimes when there's power outage?

    The iGPU is disconnected on all LGA laptops(Clevo and Msi Barbones). Expect lower battery life. Its a DTR. Not a Jokebook.

    Well that sucks.
    I thought it had dual GPUs that can be switched like older AW m17x.
    I don't like GSYNC which doesn't work most of the times due to crappy nvidia drivers.

    I have not the need to use an iGPU :rolleyes: Luckily with my MSI taptop, I can switch to either dedicated or integrated GPU and not both at the same time so I won't have to sit and wonder if my benchmark or game is actually using my nVIDIA GPU

    So what happens to GSYNC/FreeSync when you switch to iGPU?
