Inspiron G5 15 5500, Intel drivers

Jump to solution

Just wondering when the Dell drivers for the new Intel video drivers will be released? Is it safe to use the intel drivers rather than the Dell drivers?

If you heed Intel's own warning for their graphics driver that states:

Note: Installing this Intel generic graphics driver will overwrite your computer manufacturer (OEM) customized driver. OEM drivers are handpicked and include customized features and solutions to platform-specific issues. The generic Intel driver provides users the latest and greatest feature enhancements and bug fixes that OEMs may not have customized yet to address platform-specific needs. Users can check for matching OEM versions at OEM websites.

I would personally would wait for Dell to release their bespoke newer graphics driver to avoid any unexpected issues.
