Yes and Allot of the Intel based Machines use AMD graphic like HP (some of them)!

So you may want to check your device manager to see what type video chipset your are using before going the PC manufacture site.

PLEASE Note that...You may want to uninstall the old Video driver before installing the Win 8 update!
This will save you some time and errors as well as conflicts!

regads,
Maxx
