    Intel released a new beta driver for processors with integrated graphics, for the Windows 8 Release Preview. Carrying the version number 15.28.0.64.2770, the driver supports Windows Display Driver Model Version 1.2 (WDDM 1.2), and enables features such as stereoscopic 3D, optimized screen rotation detection, and DirectX 11 (on select graphics controller models). It supports Intel HD Graphics 4000/3000/2500/2000 (Core "Sandy Bridge" and Core "Ivy Bridge"). Intel recommends use of its Windows 7 driver for reliability with OpenGL 3.3 applications.

    Then why release this, if they recommend Windows 7 Drivers for reliability. So the Beta drivers for Windows 8 are not worth the hustle

    Probably because the recommendation (Win7) concerns OGL and presumeably not D3D.
    Seemed fairly self explanatory.
