Intel has released new drivers for Windows 10 and Windows 11 and the main highlight of the new version is the WiFi quality, so good news for those who mainly use wireless networks to work or play. However, it also improves Bluetooth connectivity.
Windows 10 and 11: WiFi problems have just been resolved!
The previous update fixed bugs that caused blue screen errors and other issues. The main goal now is to solve connectivity situations. Please note that these drivers are available via the Intel update tool.
Regarding the list of changes for Wi-Fi, Intel warns that the latest version fixes a situation that resulted in connection timeouts. This in both Windows 11 and Windows 10. In addition, it was sometimes not possible to establish a connection to networks with WPA / AES security.
But there were also fixes at the Bluetooth level. More specifically, it fixed an issue that resulted in us getting poor sound quality while on a call. We also have improvements in terms of security.
On top of that, there is another update that you should do!
In fact, it’s practically mandatory for anyone with Windows 10 or Windows 11 and a motherboard with an Intel chip. The Intel DCH 188.8.131.521 driver is available to users with an Intel 6th generation or later processor and is designed to resolve issues with the Desktop Window Manager. But most importantly, Intel will get faster installing this update on Windows 10 and 11!
Desktop Window Manager is a window manager built into the operating system for taskbar thumbnails, Windows apps, animations, high-resolution monitors, and other visual effects.
In fact, the Desktop Window Manager is part of Windows and will appear in the Task Manager results as “DWM.exe” or “Desktop Window Manager”. It is crucial for the graphical user interface of the operating system and cannot be deactivated.
Most of the time, the Desktop Window Manager runs smoothly in the background and does not consume a lot of resources. However, one mistake can cause it to suddenly consume more RAM and processing power. This is how stability problems begin in both Windows 10 and Windows 11.
Although Microsoft has been working on several fixes to address Windows 11 performance issues, Intel has now released a new update that fixes several issues and provides more speed.
However, problems with the graphics controllers have also been fixed.
The changes are really numerous and that is noticeable in the speed. However, Intel says we will see improvements in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, for example. However, there is also much less frame loss. This affected several games such as Battlefield 2042 and FIFA 21.
Also, graphical anomalies in titles like Shadow of the Tomb Raider have been fixed.
