Does anyone know whether HP is going to update the Intel Iris Plus graphics drivers regularly? My rig is brand new, and yesterday when doing the standard initial update process there was a single graphics drivers update available on the Windows Update service (November version). It seems that HP handles the graphics driver updates mainly via Windows Update, as well as Bios updates? The newest version with latest optimizations on the Intel site is released in February, and comes with the version number 18.104.22.16870. I tried to install the newest version first with the Intel Update Tool and then manually, however updating wasn't possible (error message stating that you can't update a manufacturer specific driver, contact your system provider etc.) Is it possible to update the Iris Graphics Plus driver manually somehow? Any drawbacks if going this way? The November driver really is quite old and missing all kinds of optimizations that sound quite promising when reading through the release notes of last three Intel driver releases. Another question, my X360 doesn't have the Intel Optane SSD (instead it came with a very fast Samsung M.2 drive). Can I safely remove all Intel Optane tools and utilities from my computer? Intel Update Tool recommended installing Rapid Storage Technology drivers and tools, might this be helpful concernig the drive perfomance and reliability?
