Struggling for Starfield fps? If you own an Intel graphics card, we could have the answer. The Arc & Iris Graphics 220.127.116.1187 GPU driver promises to improve Starfield performance by up to 149% and brings plenty more benefits to the table alongside.
Its graphics cards have tended towards the lower end of the market, price and performance-wise, and there were some concerns from team blue that its GPUs would struggle to run Starfield, as Bethesda’s space RPG is known for its inconsistent performance.
But it seems like Intel’s found a way to make the sci-fi game work, with its latest driver update promising a huge performance boost. In 1440p, Intel claims you could see up to 149% better performance with High settings compared to an earlier driver. At 1080p and Ultra settings, the boost is a still-impressive 117%.
Here are all the changes introduced by Intel’s latest GPU driver update:

Although Intel’s foray into the GPU market has brought us some decent, budget cards, team blue is still yet to crack our best graphics card list. In our view, you’re still best off sticking with Nvidia or AMD, but we’re curious to see what Intel can bring to the space in the future.
