How much data are your GPU drivers collecting about you? Quite a lot in Intel’s case

The installer for the latest Intel graphics card 101.4578 beta drivers adds a “Compute Improvement Program” (CIP) data-gathering component that’s automatically selected during installation. 

This CIP gathers data for Intel including “categories of websites visited by users (excluding specific URLs) and how they utilize their computers,” according to a report from TechPowerUP (via VideoCardZ). Intel will also collect information on system hardware specs, regional information, and manufacturers of devices, including those which are close by such as Smart TVs.”
