Intel 30.0.101.1404 driver can boost Windows 11 Xe systems' performance, fixes black screen

Intel Graphics driver

Intel has released a new Windows DCH graphics driver version 30.0.101.1404 today. The major highlight of the release is Cross-Adapter resource scan-out (CASO) support on Windows 11 systems that are running on 11th Gen Intel Core Tiger Lake processors. CASO enables 1-copy path that results in a reduction of the overall workload, and therefore, can boost performance under certain situations.

  • Support enabled for Cross-Adapter resource Scan-Out (CASO) to optimize processing, bandwidth, and latency for hybrid graphics Windows 11* systems on 11th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors with Intel® Iris® Xe graphics.

Other than CASO, the driver also brings several other fixes:
