Intel 15.60 graphics drivers support HDR

Added XR support as well

The Windows 10 Fall Creators update introduced several new features. With the launch of Fall Creators update, Intel was a little in late with graphics driver however the company has released now a new version. With the 15.60 graphics drivers, Intel adds HDR and XR support.

According to Microsoft, the Windows MR platform is the key for the future of computing and the company put a lot of effort into ensuring that Windows MR is accessible to everyone. Unlike the Steam VR (HTC Vive) and Oculus Home (Rift) platforms that require high-end gaming PCs, you don't need expensive gaming PCs for the basic features of Windows Mixed Reality. The Windows MR platform is compatible with Intel UHD or HD Graphics 620 IGPs available in 7th generation Intel Core processors.

If you want a deep experience you will still need a discrete graphics card, however for basic operation such as productivity, passive entertainment and basic games the Intel HD 620 IGP should be enough. For example Minecraft VR can run on an ultrabook. With the 15.60 graphics drivers, Intel enables HDR video playback on HD Graphics 620 and UHD Graphics 620 IGPs. The update enables support for HDR content on Netflix and YouTube as well as local videos.

You can find the latest version of the Intel Graphics Driver on Intel's driver download center.
