Provide a detailed description of the issue
watching twitch.tv streams at 1080p@60fps, fullscreen freezes chrome and windows in a matter of seconds
watching task manager, the frequency of the CPU goes to 3.1GHZ (maximum turbo) and CPU usage seems a bit higher: ~25-30% compared to ~20-25% with the OEM driver
watching chrome's chrome://gpu page, hardware decoding seems to be ok:

Thank you for contacting Intel Support,
I understand that you are having freezing problems when streaming twitch at 1080p 60fps, I apologize for any inconvenience this may be causing.
Regarding this problem, we believe it could be an incompatibility between the computer which is an Asus computer and the generic Intel® Driver. If well our drivers are made for the integrated graphics it is best to use the ones that have already been customized by the different OEMs, Asus for example.
We supply generic versions of graphics drivers for general purposes. Computer manufacturers can change the features, incorporate customization, or make other changes to the graphics driver software or software packaging. To avoid potential installation incompatibilities, we recommend that you first check with your computer manufacturer and use the driver software provided.
We suggest you use the driver provided by Asus in order to avoid problems.
I have rolled back to the old driver provided by windows update, since that seems to be the only solution.
I am pretty upset about using a (very) outdated driver, but at least it is a working one..
I still haven't managed to get the new driver to work, and I was waiting and hoping that a new version would fix it.. I would love to benefit from the improvements of the new drivers.
Thank you for the follow-up!
