What just happened? Inexplicably, Intel failed to release the Rocket Lake integrated graphics driver before the processor was released last week. They haven’t provided any excuses yet, probably because there are no excuses: from everyone’s point of view, Rocket Lake’s integrated graphics are clones of old hardware and do not require updated drivers-just certification.
Intel’s graphics driver can usually be found on its download site, but if you search for 11900K or its equivalent, you will only get the Performance Maximizer utility. If you downloaded the Intel graphics driver installer, it will show that it cannot find a file that matches your hardware. This is a bit annoying when you pay more than $600 for a new processor.
Before the embargo, reviewers, including ourselves, were provided with pre-release drivers, and the people who tested the integrated graphics did not find any anomalies. OEM can also use the driver. As far as we know, the integrated graphics inside the Rocket Lake processor (trademark UHD 750) is functionally the same as the integrated graphics inside last year̵
Lisa Pearce, Intel’s director of graphics software engineering, said that these drivers will be available to the public before Monday.
Update: The driver will be released on Monday morning and this thread will be updated when available

But fortunately, if you bring a Rocket Lake processor and don’t have a video card paired with it, you can play CS:GO at 30 fps without waiting until Monday. Solution:
Download the .zip file for the regular Intel Graphics driver and install it manually using the Windows driver installation tool: Control Panel>Device Manager>Display Adapter>UHD 750>(right-click) Properties>Driver>Update Driver> Browse my computer for driver software.
