184.108.40.20642 = 220.127.116.1142 , as described at Why does an Intel graphics driver have two version numbers associated with it?
So you can only update to the beta driver 18.104.22.16852
As the installer fails, check out how to Manually Install an Intel® Graphics Driver in Windows® 10 and Windows...
Thanks but this does not really answer why Intel are listing drivers that will not install on their website? And also why processors that are officially released and sold to the public are not listed as compatible inside those drivers?
I do understand that the driver I already have (from ASRock) is the same as one, of the two, listed above. And that is the one that I cannot get to work properly with HDMI 2.0 (it works fine with HDMI 1.4 but I need higher resolution).
So that leaves the beta driver. But I cannot get the beta driver to install either. As discussed the installer does not work (probably because the processor is not listed as compatible). I have already tried updating the driver through the device manager:
1. If I follow the instructions you linked to It just says "the best driver is already installed" and then nothing happens. Either I need to uninstall the old driver first (because Intel for some strange reason have named the existing driver and the beta with the same version) or this is simply not working.
2. If I try the other route called something like "Have disk" and select the .inf file then I can select many types of Intel HD Grapics like 530, 535, 620 and also some Iris Graphics like 555 and 580. But the 630 is not listed? I guess I could try something like HD 620 but not sure if that would work.
In any case it just seem like a complete mess from Intel...
The answer is simple, because Intel is pathetic and lazy when it comes to driver support. Launching products that costs over 300 USD and they don't even bother to support them with drivers, they don't really care. It's just pathetic and lazy.
Of course I get drivers from other sources but as a customer I expect driver support from Intel. This is certainly not asking too much.
I took a look at the INF files, INTEL seems to have forgotten your GPU?
Try this driver from Hewlett Packard, it's generic and definitely supports your GPU
Actually there are 2 different HD 630
%iKBLDTGT2% = iKBLD_w10_DS, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_5912
%iKBLHALOGT2% = iKBLD_w10_DS, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_591B
iKBLDTGT2 = "Intel(R) HD Graphics 630"
iKBLHALOGT2 = "Intel(R) HD Graphics 630"
Yups, I agree. It's quite amazing that Intel releases a whole new series of desktop processors but fail to provide the latest drivers for them.
Stefan3D. Many thanks. That driver from HP did the trick. It would not download in full from the FTP link you provided. But I managed to find (the same package?) on the HP website and that would download fine.
I now have 3840x2160 at various FPS working properly AND with HDCP 2.2 (confirmed through Netfix 4K streaming in Edge)
The only problem that remains is that the boot screen does not show when using HDCP 2.0 (it shows fine when using HDCP 1.4). This is a minor problem as I can simply switch the input to 1.4 if I need to access the BIOS. In any case that is probably not for this forum...
Again, thanks for your help. Been using discrete graphics for many years so have not really bothered with Intel iGPU drivers.
I think Intel has actually released a public driver that works for 7700K now? At least 7700K is now listed as compatible and that was not the case some weeks ago:
This has the same version number as the driver I'm using (4590). Although I got it from another source so have not tried above link...
