I'm running it on an i7 MacBook Air. The driver fixes a long-standing crash bug with Mass Effect... but unfortunately seems to introduce another one. All other applications so far run well.
It's for laptops only. If you have a desktop, it won't show in the automated update.
To avoid confusion in the future, I suggest you use the boad-specific selection along with the OS used rather than chip set. Or just use the automated update. It's pretty smart.
Hi CarWiz. Thanks for the response. If this update is just for laptops, Intel's directions are not just confusing - they are misleading!
Go to Support - Browse for Product Support. Enter Graphics - Desktop Graphics Controllers - Intel HD Graphics - Drivers - O/S and you get the instant update.
As I stated in the original post, the Detailed Description contained in the update states the update applies to BOTH Core i7 Processors and Core i7 Mobile Processors. However, the README and RELEASE NOTES only address the i7 Mobile Processor.
I think the question remains - Is this update applicable to i7 desktop processors? Regards. Peter
They are for Desktop as well.
Hi Yups - Thanks for the reply. Can you tell me how you determined the update is for the desktop processor i7? Regards. Peter

I have a i5- 2500k Desktop CPU, the driver works flawlessly. There is no difference between i7 and i5 graphics wise, i7 has a higher GPU frequency but that's all. I see no reason why it shouldn't work on i7. The whole 2nd generation HD graphics series should be supported.
