Intel Graphics Driver for Windows 10 Version: DCH 25.20.100.6519

These new drivers labeled as Windows DCH graphics drivers are not backward compatible with our previous graphics drivers that we're now labeling Legacy. This means if later you want to revert to a Legacy driver you will need to uninstall the driver via Windows Apps and Features and reboot the system before installing a Legacy driver. Failure to do so may result in minor to catastrophic issues on your system as well as system instability.

DO NOT use the INF / Have-Disk method to install or uninstall this driver as it bypasses the Intel installer designed to install these new drivers, thereby possibly resulting in minor to major system instability. For this reason, we're not providing the ZIP file for the next several driver releases while users transition to this new Microsoft driver platform.

TechPowerUp GPU-Z 2.16.0 Released

Mon, 10 Dec 2018 18:51:19 +0000

GPU-Z is a lightweight utility designed to give you all information about your video card and GPU.

Version History

v2.16.0 (December 10th, 2018)

  • When a UWD/DCH driver is detected on Windows 10, it will be displayed as "DCH" in driver version
  • Advanced tab now includes an entry showing DCH driver status on Windows 10
  • Added EVGA iCX support for RTX 2080 FTW3 and RTX 2080 Ti FTW3
  • Fixed GPU-Z crash on AMD Polaris
  • Added support for NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060

  • Moved "check for updates" setting to main settings panel

For those doing a fresh install of Microsoft's latest Windows 10 operating system (version 1809 October 2018 Update), you may encounter an issue with NVIDIA graphics drivers. Namely, a message may pop up when you install the graphics driver, telling you "The standard NVIDIA graphics driver is not compatible with this version of Windows". The issue is caused by the operating system automatically installing the GeForce 398.36 DCH graphics driver through Windows Update, immediately after first log-on. DCH drivers are also known as "Universal Windows Driver", "UWD", "DCHU", and "Declarative, Componentized, Hardware Support App", and leverage the Windows UWP platform for driver control panels while promising simpler updates and maintainability.

If networking is available during the Windows 10 installation, the operating system will automatically look for a graphics driver on Windows Update, which is a good thing, as it simplifies the setup process for the majority of users. At this point, everything will appear to be fine, however, once you attempt to update from that driver to the newest version from NVIDIA's driver download page, the error will appear. This is highly frustrating for some users, who have been reporting the issue on several online forums, including NVIDIA's own, with little attention paid thus far from their developers.
