Thanks for joining the community.
I am sorry to hear that have had performance issues with Intel Graphics Drivers.
Please make sure you have loaded the latest graphics driver for your video controller and test if this performance issue still happens with an updated version.
Please filter by operating system and try to install the driver when it finishes downloading, to verify that your system will accept it:
I already tried downloading and installing the latest drivers. I even updated the BIOS of my Intel NUC. Everything is totally up to date both drivers and Windows 8.1. The problem still persists though and my entire system still freezes when I try to run any GPU-accelerated media such as Windows Live Movie Maker. Running games is fine though most of the time.
Thanks for coming back to the community.
Intel is collecting feedback for issues encountered when using driver version 3496, if there are issues that carried over from previous drivers that you are still experiencing, feel free to announce them here:
