Intel has just pushed out its new Arc graphics driver "220.127.116.1168" with some new titles getting Game-On support, a list of games that have been optimized, and a bunch of the usual bugs being squashed.
The new Intel Arc graphics driver "18.104.22.16868" has Game-On support for both Saints Row and Madden NFL 23, on the Intel Arc A-series graphics cards, while there are optimizations for the just-released Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered.
Along with the new Spider-Man Remastered optimizations, Intel's new Arc GPU drivers also fix Shadow of the Tomb Raider from crashing when setting the Ray Traced Shadow Quality to High. Intel notes that a workaround to this is changing it to "Medium" or "Off" instead.

There are fixes for the Smooth Sync technology, the in-game overlay telemetry, UL scaling, and performance tuning.
