Thinkpad Edge 13 GPU drivers

Hi,

Does anyone have any idea why Lenovo hasn't updated the Intel gma drivers for the 13" edge? The 8.15.10.1872 that Lenovo provides is over 2 years old and doesn't have flash hardware decoding for example. For a laptop with such a slow CPU, GPU hw decoding would be great. The about:support in Firefox says: GPU Accelerated Windows 0. Blocked for your graphics driver version. Try updating your graphics driver to version 8.15.10.2202 or newer.

 

I tried downloading the newest driver from Intel's site but the installer said I need to download the "manufacturer specific" driver cause "something might break".

 

If anyone from Lenovo reads this, please get your driver team to update the drivers Smiley Happy

Re: Thinkpad Edge 13 GPU drivers

So, it's been ~3½ months, no one has answered this and there has been no driver updates. Does anyone know of a better way to get attention from Lenovo about driver updates as it seems they're not reading this forum/acting on it at all. The newer edge versions have updated drivers so I can't figure out why it is so hard to get newer drivers for the old model as well.

 

I even tried downloading the updated driver for E430 but they wouldn't install either.

 

Hoping someone from Lenovo would read this and at least answer it.
