Intel Graphics Driver Slows Chrome And Edge To A Crawl – Here’s How To Fix It

An Intel graphics driver for certain 12th Gen Intel CPUs that use integrated GPUs causes major damage to Chrome and Edge browsers, causing severe slowdowns and even freezing of the system. This type of problem is frustrating for any laptop, but it’s made worse by the fact that it affects Intel’s latest CPUs.

The problem is a graphics driver for Intel’s integrated UHD Graphics 770, which is a bad look considering many here in the US market are eagerly awaiting the company’s ARC discrete GPUs. Intel, for its part, acknowledges the problem, stating: “Recent Intel UHD Graphics 770 drivers for 12th Gen Intel Core™ processors are seriously lagging Edge* and Chrome* browsers. The browsers behave as if they are half-frozen. The click response delay is 2 seconds, and scrolling is severely slowed and jerky.”
