You are surprised? No AF at all (not working), no AA option and so on. They even removed the last options as you already mentioned because they can't get it to work at all . So they decided to remove all advanced options. Even their texture performance and quality options are a piece of ****. It only changes the Lod which is pure nonsense. Quality does mean Lod -1 for Intel, that's ridiculous.
Yes, unfortunately I have come to the conclusion that "piece of ****" is exactly what best describes Intel Graphics nowadays. The system had become completely unusable by the efforts of the team that dumbed down the driver ... with the effect that what used to (barely) run on older versions does not run anymore. So I had to get rid of it and am now using something else.
One very dissatisfied ex-customer here who now is avoiding Intel Graphics at all costs! I can only warn anyone who is using anything remotely graphics intensive (even Flash games) to chose another manufacturer.
