Also, I just tried the Intel Driver Update Utility and it doesn't seem to be the answer. When I install and run it, it is actually attempting to downgrade my Graphics Driver from 4590 back to 4542 "because that's the latest one for my system." No doubt it is doing the same with other subsystems where I am currently using newer drivers that have not been identified for specific use on my NUC (Wireless, Ethernet, etc.).

My personal opinion: The intel Driver Update Utility is useless; too buggy to trust...
The drivers that are posted on the download page for a particular NUC are those that have gone through a full and formal validation on the NUC. The (later version) drivers obtained elsewhere may work just fine, but they have not yet gone through the same level of validation (testing) with the NUC. You should only try using these newer versions if the Intel Customer Support folks are recommending that you do so (presumably for some particular issue).
Hope that covers the distinction,

JamesU, Scott is right. When you find a Intel® site with drivers for an Intel® NUC all of the downloads available in that link are intended to work for that product specifically. The graphics controller included in these processors are also included in other products that are not Intel® NUC; therefore, you find a category for Intel® NUC's and category for graphics. To ensure compatibility, is recommended to use the drivers that are specify for the product, so in this case these drivers; Downloads for Intel® NUC Kit NUC6i7KYK.
