Q to Lenovo: What does the "Intel(R) OLED Panel Driver" Windows device and Windows driver do?

2018-01-24, 7:19 AM



The Thinkpad X1 Yoga 2017/2:nd edition has an OLED panel option.


Lenovo's download page for this model, https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/hk/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-x-series-laptops/thinkpad-x1-yoga-type-20jd-20je-20jf-20jg/downloads , offers a driver "Intel "OLED Panel Driver for Windows 10 (64-bit) - ThinkPad X1 Yoga (Type: 20JD, 20JE, 20JF, 20JG)",, 2017/10/02, in the Display and Video Graphics section.


In Windows, the device appears as "Intel(R) OLED Panel Driver" under "System devices" in the Windows Device Manager.


Normally I'd think all needed to drive a display is the graphics driver (e.g. "Intel(R) HD Graphics 620" under "Display adapters") and a monitor file for resolution, frequency and color calibration ("OLED Display 2560x1440" under "Monitors").


So, why do we need an "Intel(R) OLED Panel Driver", and what does this device actually do?

Dear customer,

Intel(R) OLED Panel Driver is used to control OLED brightness, other graphics signals are handled by Intel(R) HD Graphics driver.
