One to have for World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth on Intel IGP

Intel has started to keep up with new games by releasing a new graphics driver update whenever there is a major launch, and World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth is no exception.

While it might not have a high-end gaming GPU in its portfolio, bear in mind that Intel's IGP is a choice for over 9.5 percent of users on Steam, which is not that far from AMD's 13.9 percent, but still nowhere near Nvidia's 76.3 percent. While it might not run any AAA game titles, there are plenty of games that work well on Intel IGP and World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth is certainly one of them.

According to Blizzard's World of Warcraft support page, it should work on Intel's UHD Graphics 600 series, HD Graphics 600 series and HD Graphics 500 series IGPs. Of course, don't expect a lot of eye-candy or any high resolution, as Intel itself is recommending the UHD Graphics 620 IGP or better.

The latest graphics driver from Intel brings several bug fixes and support for a total of eight new gaming titles, with World of Warcraft: Battle of Azeroth being the showrunner. It also brings support for The Walking Dead: The Final Season, Yakuza 0, Ys: Memories of Celceta, Stonehearth, Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion, This is the Police 2 and Overcooked 2, all of which need UHD Graphics 620 IGP or better.

As it did with some earlier Intel graphics driver updates, Intel also listed these games on its site where you can check out the recommended settings for some of these games.

In addition to these game improvements, Intel also added some visual improvements for Dell's HDR displays as well as brought some security fixes and improvements. It also fixed some issues in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and World of Warcraft (DirectX 12) games, and graphics anomalies in World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth (DX12).

The latest Intel graphics driver v24.20.100.6229 is supported on 8th generation Core/Pentium/Celeron/Xeon CPUs with Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655 and Intel UHD Graphics 610, 620, 630, P630, 7th generation Core/Pentium/Celeron/Xeon CPUs with Iris Plus Graphics 640, 650 and Intel HD Graphics 610, 615, 620, 630, P630, 6th generation Core/Core M/Pentium CPUs with Iris Graphics 540, 550, Iris Pro Graphics 580, and Intel HD Graphics 510, 515, 520, 530, as well as some other CPUs like the Xeon E3-1500M v5 with HD Graphics P530, Pentium/Celeron CPUs with HD Graphics 500, 505 and UHD Graphics 600, 605.

The driver is available for Windows 10 64-bit only and you can download it directly from Intel's page.
