This driver fix is currently being made accessible to clients all over the planet with Intel’s sixth gen processor or more up to date, and it expects to fix issues with Desktop Window Manager.
For those new, Desktop Window Manager is a window chief incorporated into the working framework for taskbar thumbnails, application windows, activitys, high-goal screens, and other special visualizations.
Work area Window Manager is a piece of Windows and it appears as “DWM.exe” or “Work area Window Manager” in your Task Manager results. It is essential to the working framework’s graphical UI and it can’t be debilitated as the job of DWM has expanded significantly further in ongoing forms of Windows 10/11.
More often than not, Desktop Window Manager should run as expected behind the scenes and it will not burn-through an enormous piece of your gadget’s handling power. On our gadgets, Desktop Windows Manager is commonly utilizing 2-8% CPU and under 100 MB RAM. What’s more that is adequate for smooth execution.
Notwithstanding, a bug in your Intel driver bundle or the actual OS could bring about high assets utilization. For this situation, Desktop Window Manager will wind up eating more RAM or CPU than you might suspect it ought to, and it can likewise cause security issues with Windows 10 or Windows 11 forms.
While Microsoft is dealing with different fixes for Windows 11’s presentation misfortunes, Intel has now distributed another driver update that fixes a basic soundness issue in Desktop Window Manager (DWM) on gadgets utilizing Intel incorporated designs.
“Soundness enhancements with Desktop Window Manager (DWM) on sixth era Intel Core Processors through tenth era Intel® Core Processors, Intel noted in its changelog.
Soon we’ll be significantly more inspired by Intel illustrations drivers. All things considered, Intel’s capacity to plan and create enormous GPU chips isn’t actually being referred to (in spite of the fact that it’s passing on the real assembling to TSMC, for the present). The genuine inquiry encompassing the organization’s approaching Arc discrete GPUs is whether Intel can create a steady, viable, and performant gaming illustrations card driver—something that even AMD and NVIDIA battle with now and again.
So, maybe Intel doesn’t as of now have designs processors out there. Without a doubt, assuming you see absolute piece of the pie for PC illustrations connectors, Intel controls some 62% of the GPU market, as per Jon Peddie Research. Those coordinated illustrations processors (IGPs) need drivers as well, thus we have the most recent delivery, Intel Graphics Driver variant 22.214.171.1241.
This driver rendition has upgrades for both present day Intel chips with Xe-based designs just as more established chips with “Gen 9” and “Gen 11” illustrations, not to be mistaken for “ninth gen” and “eleventh gen” Intel Core processors. For Xe-based GPUs, Intel discounts crash fixes in Battlefield 2042 and FIFA 21, just as “playability upgrades” for Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary. This driver likewise adjusts “designs abnormalities” in Shadow of the Tomb Raider, just as a blunder message found in Rise of the Tomb Raider.
In the mean time, this driver offers “steadiness enhancements with Desktop Window Manager (DWM)” for sixth era through tenth era Intel Core chips. We’re not in reality clear on what the particular issue there was, however in the event that you’ve been disliking Windows crashing or holding tight your Skylake, Kaby Lake, Coffee Lake, or Comet Lake CPU’s incorporated illustrations, this driver might offer some help.

Outstandingly, late Call of Duty games, Far Cry 6, CS:GO, and The Sims 4 might crash or hang. Clients may likewise see relics in Baldur’s Gate 3, Dark Souls 3, Far Cry 6, Halo: Infinite, Metro Exodus, Mount and Blade II, Red Dead Redemption 2, The Surge 2, and Ghost Recon: Breakpoint. There are a reasonable number of model-explicit known issues, as well, so clients on Intel designs might need to check the full delivery notes [PDF] to check whether a specific game title is impacted on your equipment.
These drivers are accessible for Windows 10 and Windows 11, albeit the particular working frameworks upheld relies upon your equipment. Outstandingly, sixth and seventh era Core processors (Skylake and Kaby Lake) are not upheld on Windows 11, while eleventh and twelfth age Core processors (Rocket Lake and Alder Lake) are just upheld on Windows 10 rendition 20H2 and later.
Other improvements in Intel DCH 126.96.36.1991
Furthermore, Intel disapproves of its illustrations driver as a feature of the December 2021 Update.
For instance, Intel says it further developed execution for titles like Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary when played in exemplary designs mode. A bug that could bring about continuous crashes or slacks when playing specific titles has been fixed in this delivery.
Impacted games incorporate Battlefield 2042 and FIFA 21. Intel has additionally fixed realistic abnormalities found in Shadow of the Tomb Raider or Rise of the Tomb Raider.
