Starfield issues remain as Intel releases new WHQL Arc & Iris Xe drivers v31.0.101.4824

Published on

Less than two weeks after Intel released the latest set of WHQL drivers, the company is back with new drivers. However, Arc A770 users will be disappointed, as this driver only confirms a number of issues with StarfieldNo fixes at all that will come to the game.

You may remember Bethesda stating that the Arc A770 is not compatible Starfield, although the GPU outperforms the RTX 3060 Ti and RX 6700 XT. Some gamers felt that Bethesda was unwilling to solve problems specific to Intel’s hardware, since the A770 is the company’s current highest-end Arc GPU.
