Kaby Lake HD Graphics 630 video drivers for Windows 7 x64

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

anticeon, I think you misunderstood my question.

 

Here is what I found so far:

 

Intel HD & Iris Graphics Drivers Version 21.20.16.4526 WHQL works with HD Graphics 630 and 100 series chipset motherboards on Windows 7 x64.

Windows 8.1 should probably work, too. Newer versions doesn't.

 

I have no idea if this works on 200 series chipset motherboards. We need more testers :)

Seems like you have posted kinda much about this... The file linked is not from official site. The weird part is that its version number is much higher than the one on official Intels site. Your linked file states to work with Win7. So does all drivers on Intels official site.

 

In future I'd recommend using Intels site for drivers updates. Or if you are using OEM machine like laptop, using manufacturers site for updates.

I'm sorry for not providing an official link but Intel doesn't seem to provide one. 21.20.16.4526 WHQL should be OK though.

 

The version number is not weird. it's just the way it is:

Why does an Intel graphics driver have two version numbers associated with it?

 

Asrock is providing a newer driver version 21.20.16.4542 which is not compatible with Windows 7 x64 and Kaby Lake iGPU.

MSI is now providing an older driver version 21.20.16.4508 which seems to be compatible with Windows 7 x64 and Kaby Lake iGPU.

Why do you need that specific driver version? Because from what I can tell, its older than what Intel is providing.

Because 21.20.16.4526 WHQL is the last version that will let you install HD Graphics 630 on Windows 7 x64.

Newer versions provided by Intel won't install on Windows 7.

 

If anyone has HD Graphics 630 and run Windows 7 x64, please share your experience. Thanks a lot!

Bump. Anyone performed further testing? Anandtech still use 7 in their test bench and performed iGPU tests on Kabylake without any reported issues in February. What's the status?


Edit: disregard

I just wanted to confirm that both  v21.20.16.4508 & v21.20.16.4526 are compatible with Kaby Lake iGPU and Windows 7 x64.

They work fine for the most part. I found two glitches:

4508 - it has a performance issue with the Cinebench R15 CPU test.
4526 - scaling doesn't work for some resolutions.
