The Intel HD Graphics Driver is the latest driver release for Intel HD Graphics drivers running on Windows. The drivers supports HD graphics on Intel Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, various Pentium and Celeron processors. … If not already installed, this driver will add the Intel Graphics Command Center to the system.

Intel is the manufacturer of that particular graphics card. The term “integrated” graphics means that the GPU is embedded on the same die as the processor and shares available system memory. That means that at any given time, the GPU can access between 1 and 5 percent of the available memory depending on the tasks.

What is Intel graphics driver and do I need it?

Intel HD Graphics Driver is responsible for running your graphics, aka your display. Without it, your screen would be black and you would never be able to see anything. If you did uninstall it, it might use the standard VGA adapter driver, which would still take up some space but your resolution would be terrible.
