Intel fails to deliver the Elden Ring Driver on Time

Following the publishing of a tweet and a web page indicating a relationship with game producer Bandai Namco, Intel’s supposed launch-day driver featuring improvements for Elden Ring is still lacking in action at the time of writing. Videocardz deserves credit for bringing this to our attention.

Instead of the “Intel day-0 graphics driver on February 24th to ensure your system is optimised for Elden Ring when it releases,” the graphics driver download page now shows an update from November. We also discovered a link to a more current driver, dated February 7, which is clearly before the release of Elden Ring.

The driver, which is for integrated graphics rather than the upcoming Arc discrete boards, should make playing the graphically demanding game on lower-powered PCs easier, but don’t expect massive iGPU performance from a game that forces even PlayStation 5 owners to choose between graphical effects and high framerates.


Elden Ring, a From Software action RPG that is a spiritual successor to the Dark Souls games released on February 24, is currently receiving positive reviews, with 10/10 scores from both well-known gaming journals and the mainstream press, and a Metacritic average of 95% on PC.

AMD had the most recent driver update at the time of writing, having issued one on February 24 featuring Elden Ring optimisations and tweaks for Shadow Warrior 3 and GRID Legends, while Nvidia had released its driver eleven days earlier.
