As Windows 10 brings more and more gaming features for consumers, Graphic Card OEM is upping their software as well, and not just the hardware. In a recent update, Intel has updated its graphics driver for Windows, which can automatically configure game settings (best game settings) for its 6th Gen Core Processors or higher. This will be on a per-game basis.
Intel’s Graphics Driver can automatically configure game settings for Intel GPUs
It’s fascinating to see that Game developer and Graphics Card companies are now working together even closer than before. Intel said that it would also support Windows PCs with 8th Gen Core Processors with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics. One has to use the Control Panel from Intel to make use of this feature. Look for the ‘Gaming icon’ in the Graphics Control Panel.
At the time of writing, this feature is still in beta, so game availability and functionality is limited.
Currently supported games: Battlefield 1*, Battlefield 4*, American Truck Simulator*, Call of Duty* WWII, Destiny* 2, DOTA* 2, Grand Theft Auto V*, League of Legends*, Overwatch*, World of Tanks*
