Intel’s restructured graphics control panel has been teased, could be unveiled at GDC 2019

Intel teased its refreshed graphics control panel in a short 13-second video and said it would be unveiled later this month.

Highlights:

  • Intel is teasing its refined graphics control panel in a short video.
  • The company is expected to showcase the new panel at the GDC 2019 event.

If you own a PC or laptop, chances are you’ve accessed the Intel Graphics Control Panel before. There is not much to talk about the interface as the system has standard tools for controlling how integrated graphics behave. However, the company is trying to create excitement for the new version announced this month with a short 13-second teaser that reveals the upcoming panel’s interface bits and pieces. The video suggests a modified control panel for Intel IGT, and although not everything is shown, it looks like the interface could be like Steam.

The control panel has definitely changed aesthetically as one can find big buttons and icons for the listed games. At the top left are standard options like Home, Display, Video, System, Support and Preferences. Intel is expected to offer currently available optimized setting options for installed games based on user hardware type. However, the company has also used the hashtag #JoinTheOdyssey, which is most likely to be refreshed, which is rumored to be an indication of the company’s upcoming isolated graphics solution.

Speaking of the upcoming GDC 2019 event, which will be held from March 18 to March 22, Google is also teasing an announcement at the event and is expected to showcase its game streaming service and possibly some new gaming hardware. The Mountain View-based company’s GDC event is set to begin on March 19 at 10 AM PDT (10:30 PM IST).
