Intel has updated its graphics control software, and it’s getting a significant boost. The update will include an automatic optimization tool that will make it easier than ever to play games with integrated graphics, PCWorld reports.
Playing games on a computer without a standalone graphics card (including the vast majority of laptops) is often a hassle, requiring a lot of tedious tinkering with resolution and visual settings. Following the update, Intel’s graphics drivers will automatically tweak these settings so the game can run on your computer.
The feature will be enabled in all Intel sixth-generation or newer processors. This includes a number of computers from companies including Asus, Dell, and HP.
The feature is compatible with Battlefield 1, Battlefield 4, American Truck Simulator, Call of Duty WWII, Destiny 2, Dota 2, Grand Theft Auto V, League of Legends, Overwatch, and World of Tanks across all compatible Intel hardware.
More advanced models will be able to optimize more titles, including Age of Empires: Definitive Edition, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age HD, and Metal Gear Survive. The company claims it will add more games soon.
Intel’s service will compete with Nvidia’s GeForce Experience, which tweaks game settings for laptops and PCs, and also allows users to capture and share videos. The improvements to integrated graphics gaming from both companies are especially welcome as high cryptocurrency demand drives GPU prices up.
Laptop gamers, the gaming world is now your oyster.
