Update Tool

NOTICE TO PREVIOUS USERS

The primary benefit the Intel® Graphics Update Tool for Linux* OS provided was to simplify the update process to the most recent firmware, driver and other components in light of the sometimes substantial time gap from availability to kernel integration. Better processes are yielding faster inclusion and users will notice Fedora 27 and Ubuntu 17.10 and beyond are very current. Therefore, we are discontinuing the Update Tool as of version 2.0.6.

The final version 2.0.6 of the update tool was targeted specifically at both Ubuntu* 17.04 and Fedora* 26. Earlier revisions for those Linux distributions are no longer being supported.

We will keep the support forum available for some time, although we expect it to be for archival purposes.

History: The Intel® Graphics Update Tool for Linux* OS (formerly known as the Intel® Graphics Installer for Linux*) was renamed starting from version 2.0.2, in order to more accurately reflect the purpose of the tool. Linux distributions already include by default an Intel® graphics driver, without needing any extra installation.
