Official HP Intel HD Graphics 4400 Drivers Outdated

Product Name: HP 15-r032nx
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello HP community,

I have quite a problem here. I game on this HP 15-r032nx notebook that I obtained about a year and a half ago (as silly as it seems, but I'm a low-spec gamer, so anything goes), and I've been vouching for Intel to grab the latest Intel HD Graphics drivers, as the official ones provided by HP are sorely outdated (a little bit over a year, to be exact, latest official driver was released back in August 2015), meanwhile Intel's latest driver update was released in the middle of August 2016.

 

But, the big thing was, when I decided to revert into HP's official latest drivers, all my games' performances improved marginally. I seriously feel the performance could be further improved by having HP release their version of the latest drivers for Intel HD Graphics 4400, but unfortunately I do not see that for my laptop model.

 

Anything going on here?

Nothing is going on.

 

HP does not create the drivers for the HD 4400 graphics, Intel does. It is their product. The graphics solution  is on the same chip as the CPU\APU and not on the system board.

 

Your best source for an Intel HD 4400 graphics driver will be at the Intel driver download website

Fair enough, then.

I decided to question that as I ran Intel's Update Utility and it told me to head over to my manufacturer's website (e.g. HP) for graphics drivers as it deliberately refuses to download the latest drivers, simply because this came from a separate manufacturer.

HP creates the reference drivers for the HD 4400 and provides them to HP.

 

 It all depends on the installed APU.

 

The i3, i5 and i7 APUs all have different Intel HD Graphics solutions.  

 

If you know which CPU is installed, you can search with that as the keyword and find the latest driver.

 

Take a look at the following URL.

http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/graphics-drivers.html

 

Read the following section at Intel on the error you received.

Error Message: Computer Manufacturer Graphics Driver Detected

 

 

I have also done the very same thing with Intel wifi adapters.

 

Frequently the drivers available at Intel have more advanced features than the one HP provides.

Hi, @Kensta9223 :

 

See if this process works on the latest W10 Intel graphics driver your notebook needs...
