Identify your Intel HD & Iris Graphics Driver Codes

Maybe you want to install the drivers like I do, manually via Inf (Driver files) only and then you might need to identify which files are for your graphics card. If you haven’t any Device description, manual or already installed driver you might want to identify which card is yours and you then see often only ‘cryptic’ names or codenames. The following list is to ‘decrypt’ those names and to reveal which code represents which hardware.

Intel GPU-Z
GPU-Z is a free and portable tool. it’s good but it doesn’t tell you which driver files are been used or which one you need in case you want to upgrade your drivers.
