Is it better to install the Intel graphics driver or just leave it be?


I have an RX 480 running in my PC and I was wondering if would be a good idea to install the Intel graphics driver as well? Thought it'd save some power. However, I am worried if it may interfere with my games. What do you guys recommend?

Naruto, Thank you for posting in the Intel® Communities Support.

In reference to your question, just to let you know, we always recommend to install the graphics driver provided by the manufacturer of the computer, since that driver was customized by them to work with your specific platform. 

The Intel® Graphics drivers are generic, meaning they might or might not work with your system. In this case, since the PC is working with an AMD RX 480 graphics card, what we recommend will be to use and install the Graphics driver tested and validated by AMD, you can always get in contact directly with them to confirm if you are using the proper driver using the link below:

Any questions, please let me know.
