Intel is introducing a new feature with the ability to automatically configure game settings for Intel Graphics on 6th Gen Core Processors or higher.
Integrated graphics are typically less poweful than standalone graphics cards, so you need to tweak your resolution and visual settings to coax many games into even running. Intel's latest drivers make it easy for gamers on integrated graphics to start playing by adding in an automatic game optimization tool similar to what's available in Nvidia and AMD's software.
The new feature automatically configures game settings for Intel Graphics on 6th Gen Core Processors or higher (including systems with 8th Gen Core Processors with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics). Look for the 'Gaming icon' in the Graphics Control Panel.
This feature is still in beta so game availability and functionality is limited. Currently supported games are the following: 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.
Play Fortnite: Battle Royale as well as They Are Billions, Lost Sphear, Age of Empires: Definitive Edition, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age HD, OK KO:Let's Play Heroes, Subnautica, Legrand Legacy: Tale of the Fatebounds, and Dragon Ball FighterZ on processors with Intel HD Graphics 620 or better.
Also, enjoy Kingdom Come: Deliverance, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, and Metal Gear Survive, on Intel Iris Pro Graphics.
This new driver (v15.65) also introduces other improvements:
- Enhanced performance of graphics workloads for 6th Gen Core processors or higher with intelligent power management under maximum load.
- Improved performance in video encoding for all codecs.
- Power saving optimizations during video playback and UHD gaming is now available on all 7thGen Core processors and higher
