Intel has released new drivers for its HD graphics chips found inside many of today’s notebooks and ultrabooks. The new update is also heading to various models of Microsoft’s Surface line, including the Surface Pro 4 and the Surface Book.
The Intel drivers in question bump your software up to version 20.19.4463, and as Windows Central points out, have been available in beta form for about a month now. But as of today Intel is sending this update out to everyone, and Microsoft has approved it for the latest version of Windows 10. In other words, your devices should see it as a suggested update in the next few days and everything should install automatically.

- System may hang while resuming from Sleep/Hibernation while using WiDi
