Article describing why applications based on DirectX 12 no longer work on 4th generation Intel graphics (codename Haswell)
Starting with driver 126.96.36.19907 applications that run exclusively on DirectX* 12 API no longer work with the following Intel Graphics Controllers:
- 4th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors with Intel® Iris™ Pro Graphics 5200
- 4th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors with Intel® Iris™ Graphics 5100
- 4th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors with Intel® HD Graphics 5000/4600/4400/4200
- Intel® Pentium® and Celeron® Processors with Intel® HD Graphics based on 4th Generation Intel® Core™
A potential security vulnerability (SA-00315) in Intel® Graphics may allow escalation of privileges on 4th Generation Intel® Core™ processors. Intel has released a software update to mitigate this potential vulnerability. In order to mitigate the vulnerability, DirectX 12 capabilities were deprecated.
If you need DirectX 12 applications running on these processor's graphics, downgrade the driver to version 188.8.131.5263 or older.
