Intel graphics driver is slowing Chrome and Edge to a crawl — here’s how to fix it

2 min read

An Intel graphics driver for certain 12th gen Intel CPUs using integrated GPUs is wreaking havoc on Chrome and Edge browsers, causing severe lag and even system freezing. This type of issue is frustrating with any laptop, but it’s made all the worse by the fact that it’s affecting Intel’s latest CPUs. 

The issue is a graphics driver for Intel’s integrated UHD Graphics 770, which is a bad look as many eagerly are awaiting the company’s ARC discrete GPUs here in the US market. For its part, Intel acknowledges the issue stating, “Recent Intel UHD Graphics 770 Drivers for 12th Gen Intel Core™ Processors cause Edge* and Chrome* browsers to lag severely. The browsers behave like they are semi-frozen. Click response delay is 2 seconds, and scrolling is severely delayed and choppy.”
