Graphics out of date on Intel Iris Xe

Hi guys,

I am using Intel Iris Xe Graphics and my drivers are up to date. There were no issues last week but since update Starcraft Remastered yields the following

Graphics driver out of date

The installed version of your graphics driver is old and will prevent Starcraft: Remastered from running properly.

Visit for information on how to upgrade your graphics driver.

Starcraft Remastered runs BUT there are artifacts and black lines all over the game, it looks choppy and ugly.

Can you please suggest what can I do?

Here’s my dxdiag dump of the sys info:

Hey there,

The partial dxdiag data you listed doesn’t give us any of the needed info in regards to your GPU and the drivers it is using but the error is pretty clear that it sees your GPU using out of date drivers. (You could also use some windows updates being on 19042 when the latest Windows 10 version is 19044)

Manually check for any windows updates. Then download and install the most recent driver for your GPU here:

Thanks for the reply. Windows is now up to date and I managed to workaround the issue when I downgraded my video drivers to the previous version.

Using the latest video driver leads to the problem I described.

I will wait for either another SC:R update or the next video driver update and retry. For now I will stick with the older driver version.
