      Intel® is introducing a new feature with the ability to automatically configure 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. The Automatic Game Settings feature is still in beta so game availability and functionality is limited.

      We'd love to hear your feedback on this feature though so please let us know what you think in this thread!


      Stay tuned for future improvements and more games coming soon!
