It didn’t even appear that he had disabled DirectX 12 on an old IGP from Intel

They responded to a potential vulnerability when releasing a previous drive.

Intel for about a month posted an entry, in which it is reported that applications using the DirectX 12 API no longer run on the 4th generation processor family, i.e. the IGP of chip-based products based on the Haswell codename.

The whole thing is interesting because, according to the company, this restriction was introduced in drive 15.40.44.5107, which practically fixes a potential vulnerability. It also makes sense that if DirectX 12 programs cannot run, a vulnerability that could be exploited through DirectX 12 is not available.

However, you may notice that the 15.40.44.5107 driver was released in January of the previous year, meaning that the DirectX 12 applications have been virtually inactive for almost two years. In comparison, so far no one has complained about this. It is likely that if Intel does not announce this restriction nearly two years after its introduction, the situation will not appear to the media.

In any case, if someone is still affected by the limitation and tears their hair for nearly two years as to why previously running programs don’t start, Intel says the 15.40.42.5063 and older drivers still have a DirectX 12 implementation, but in that form a potentially exploitable vulnerability also exists.
