Intel has published a huge update for both its wireless driver and Graphics Command Center on Windows 10.

Intel released two driver updates for Windows 10 users in August and the first week of September, but both updates were pulled after users reported installation issues.

Yesterday, Intel released a new hotfix that will resolve installation issues and allow you to receive the latest update that includes fixes for plenty of problems in Windows 10.

Intel’s latest Wi-Fi driver version is 21.120.2 and update is specifically aimed at Windows 10 version 1809 and newer. According to Intel, installing this update will resolve Windows Blue Screen of Death errors users experienced with the wireless driver or when normally working on their computer.

Here’s the full changelog:
  • Fixes BSOD when restarting Windows.
  • Fixes BSOD when resuming Windows from sleep mode.

And now also a graphics driver update:
Intel has once again released a new update to its DCH graphics drivers for Windows 10 devices, bringing it up to version number 27.20.100.8681. Despite taking a while to release and a significant build number jump, this release has one of the shortest changelogs yet. The driver adds support for two recently released (or announced) titles - eFootball Pro Evolution Soccer 2021 and Halo 3: ODST, which should be playable on devices with Intel Iris Plus Graphics or higher.

Aside from the newly-added support for those games, this release fixes a single issue, where players might have observed soma graphics anomalies in Total War Three Kingdoms on 10th-generation Intel processors with Iris Plus Graphics.
