The 18.104.22.1683 package also provides new profiles and bug fixes.
Intel has made available the beta 22.214.171.1243 Arc Driver Package, which includes IGPs for the Alder Lake-H, -P, Arc A350M, A370M, A550M, A770M, and A380 chips for mobile and desktop GPUs, respectively. The device driver introduces new profiles for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, F1 2022 and Arcadegeddon, which are calibrated for Arc-series GPUs.
An important innovation in the new package is that Intel makes the so-called advanced performance optimization configurable. At the moment, the feature only affects the 3DMark Time Spy and Port Royale test programs, where the company used a code exchange that UL Benchmarks deemed an effective scam, so it measured the performance of Arc VGAs on previous drives, but the results were not documented. However, with Optimization turned off by default, your 3DMark results will be validated. It’s important to note, however, that the active performance improvement is still not acceptable to 3DMark, which measures hardware performance but is reported as an unverified result in the database.
The driver also provides bug fixes, including removing Metro Exodus: Enhanced Edition (DirectX 12), F1 2020 (DirectX 12), Crossfire (DirectX 9), Euro Truck Simulator 2, and Horizon Zero Dawn (DirectX 12). The flaws of the creations, as well as the stability of the game in the last title, will be enough along with The Sims 4 (DirectX 9) and Ghostwire: Tokyo (DirectX 12).
