Why doesn't the Intel HD3000 graphics driver have a Windows 10 support update? The HD2500 graphics driver is supported.

I was just curious. I have Intel HD3000 Graphics and have been using Windows 10 with the previous graphics driver 9.17.10.4229 for Windows 8.1 It works flawlessly. I also use the HDMI to LED/LCD tv and the color and scaling is perfect. Intel truly overlooked my processor when determining if it can meet their standard for WIndows 10. Because I have no issues with the Windows 8.1 graphics driver working with Windows 10 for over 6 months now. But because it's not supported, the Intel Driver Update and Dell Driver Update won't work at all because they won't support W10 with HD3000. Thats sad for all the probably 100s of thousands that have a computer with HD3000

Hi William Calle,

I regret any inconvenience caused but, only 4th gen processors and later are fully compatible with Windows® 10. The operating system introduced the technology WDDM 2.0 and older processors supported WDDM 1.2.

3th gen processors and older require to run Windows® 10 update in order to get the best graphics driver.

Regards,
