Intel gets behind NVIDIA and launches its drivers for F1 2023

A new installment of drivers from Intel, which this time comes just behind NVIDIA to give the best support to a game that has been with us for two days, such as F1 2023. In addition to this, there is more support in three titles that are about to land and various performance improvements. Intel is catching up and also has some issues fixed and adds others to fix in the future. With that said, let’s look at these 101.4499 drivers for F1 2023, Alien Dark Descent, Counter Strike 2, and Forever Skies.

Four games supported and optimized in one go, with up to double-digit performance increases and a leap forward in Ray Tracing. This is how these 101.4499 are presented, some really interesting drivers that will test how fast we are in F1 2023, how we manage the fear of Alien Dark Descent and what aim we have in CS 2.

Intel Graphics driver Arc 101.4499, big improvements in F1 2023


It is a game full of novelties and the great hope of the fans of this sport to get closer to the pilots and teams. The title itself is loaded with new features and improved graphics, but what attracts the most attention are technical aspects such as Precision Drive, Braking Point 2, new realistic race distances or simply the red flags.

For this reason, thanks also to the Ray Tracing that is also noticeable here, the game needs a good optimization, which in the case of Intel and these drivers achieves a notable increase in performance thanks to the software engineers of the blues. Having said this, let’s go with everything related to this Intel driver for F1 2023 and its changes.
