Is there any reason why the Win 8 beta driver for intel graphics is available for almost every model except the X220 series?
I realize that there are drivers available through Windows update, but I'm not sure they have the full range of functionality as the Lenovo one. Certain programs such as bluestacks state that the newest driver available through Windows update do not meet requirements (possibly Open GL related).
Solved! Go to Solution.

Sorry to bump my own post, but I resolved my issue with alternative measures.
Intel dropped the ball on this one by pushing inadequate drivers to Windows update, so you have to disable it from auto-installing at will, and manually select the drivers that work better. People are hacking the beta Lenovo drivers for all sorts of manufacturer's that use Sandy Bridge graphics, but I found them to have issues as well.
Fortunately Microsoft was kind enough to include working ones for us, as long as you dig through and find them in the list.

I guess I forgot to install that one. Under drivers for the X220 Tablet, it's listed under display, Thinkpad Tablet Driver II. Works like a charm.
