Please review a fix for this issue:
In JDK 8 b91 we enabled D3D pipeline on Intel HD Graphics chipsets
After that we received a number of reports about rendering artifacts.
Apparently, updating drivers to the latest version resolved these bugs.
While it's probable that we are using D3D in some not exactly compatible
way, it's more likely a driver issue.
So the fix is to update drivers blacklist to the latest versions
available from the Intel website.
I've tested the software from this bug report as well as simple test
case and internal test from the other report on Lenovo laptops with HD
Graphics 3000 and 4000 with Windows 7 x64.
