Intel's very first Windows 11 22H2 drivers version 31.0.101.2111 and 31.0.101.3222 are out

Intel graphics driver for Windows 11 22H2

Earlier today, Intel confirmed that its new WDDM 3.1 driver for upcoming Windows 11 22H2 feature update won't support 10th Gen Core processors and older. The full list of all the unsupported processor families can be found in this article. The company is also changing the way it serves its drivers. It is bifurcating its driver package, which will now contain legacy drivers for the unsupported CPUs alongside the Day 0 game supported driver for the 11th Gen chips and newer families.

As such, the company has released two drivers today in its driver package, with version 31.0.101.2111 (Legacy) and version 31.0.101.3222. The full changelog as well the list of known issues is given below:
