Previously known as Intel Graphics Installer for Linux, the Intel Graphics Update Tool is designed to let users install the latest graphics drivers for their Intel HD GPUs. It’s specifically made for Ubuntu and Fedora distributions, and the latest version finally adds support for Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) and Fedora 24, though Fedora 25 is out.
Included in Intel Graphics Update Tool 2.0.3 is the Mesa 12.0.3 3D Graphics Library, Cairo 1.15.2 graphics library, libva-intel-driver 1.7.2, as well as all the libva related libraries, such as libva-wayland, libva-tpi, libva-glx, libva-egl, libva-drm, libva-x11, and libva-utils. The new version also supports Intel Graphics Stack Recipe 2016Q3 for Linux.
To install Intel Graphics Update Tool 2.0.3 right now on your Ubuntu 16.10 or Fedora 24 OS, you’ll need to download either the 64-bit or 32-bit binary package for your GNU/Linux distribution from the announcement page above, save the file on your Home directory, open a terminal emulator and execute the “sh ./intel-linux-graphics-update-tool” command (without quotes).
