Applies to Windows only

Find the minimum graphics driver available from Windows Update for a specific graphics device (GPU) family supported by Windows 8.1.

Windows 8.1 graphics driver deployment changes (x86/x64)

Windows 8.1 doesn't include in-box, third-party GPU drivers. Instead, drivers are provided via Dynamic Update during the operating-system (OS) installation or upgrade process, or via Windows Update after the initial boot of the OS. Customers installing Windows from a USB flash drive or ISO image while not connected to the Internet get the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter driver with limited functionality. Customers are encouraged to install Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL)-certified third-party drivers from Windows Update, OEM, or independent hardware vendor (IHV) websites when available.

* Older GPU models are supported by the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter, which limits functionality to a single monitor without GPU acceleration. Your GPU or PC manufacturer may support additional 3rd-party drivers, so the available driver versions listed here are subject to change.
