it is in "KNOWN ISSUES" list , "Graphics corruption may be observed in Battlefield 4" and I want it to be fixed.
Beta version 126.96.36.19904 works better ( before got always graphics corruption ) now with beta only in 50% cases, if I see Graphics corruption I just restart and MAYBE on next boot game will load ok without graphics corruption.
other problem is performance ( happen only on Beta driver Intel(R) Graphics Driver: 188.8.131.5204 , last "final" driver worked without this problem ) , performance drop ~60-70% , reboot fixing this problem.

Thanks Amy, I will test and report back , from PDF report I see they say Graphics corruption is fixed , but how about performance problems? it fixed too ?
also I see even more newer version uploaded .4444 beta and not .4424 , I guess I will need to test both and report back.
version 4424 fixed almost all graphics corruption but not 100%, I will try beta version 4444 today and report again.
version 4424 fixed PC freeze problems ( in games only) can't tell for sure, because this is rare problem.
version 4424 fixed big performance drop in frames per second.
beta version 4444 tests :
some times sound not working , output via HDMI , need to restart the PC to get sound back , disabling the driver and enabling it again not helping , in windows all looks ok , windows test sound show like it all is ok but no sound.
fixed all graphics corporation in battlefield 4
fixed computer freeze in battlefield 4
Amy how about improve performance ? any tutorial for overclocking GPU ? Intel(R) Extreme Tuning Utility ?
Overclocking is not supported from our end, what I could recommend is heading to a different community where you might get more feedback from users that overclocked their GPU's, see these links; Overclock.net - An Overclocking Community, TweakTown's Ultimate Intel Skylake Overclocking Guide**. Just bear in mind that Intel has not tested, and does not warranty, the operation of the processor beyond its specifications.
** The content on the above site is not controlled by Intel. This information is offered for your convenience and should not be viewed as an endorsement by Intel for the merchants or services offered there.

I use even lower rez 1280x720 and all on LOW , to get better performance.
after a week of testing beta version 4444, graphics bugs very rare, freeze also very rare got only 2 in a week ( if need photos I can upload ).
Here it is, beta version 4444 crash less in games more in windows.
need to power off and on again to make it work again, I see other users on this forum have exactly same problem , and screen looks about the same.
if need games bugs photos let me know I can upload too.
and again , some times HDMI output not have sound, need to disable and enable "Intel(R) Display Audio" at Device Manager and it will back to work right away.
Yes please, attach them too.
Could you please list the games that are causing this corruption?
Does this only happen when you run the games?
