Intel Introduces its New Graphics Command Center App, Paving the Way For Intel Xe

Intel has revealed the layout and overall look (as well as functionality, though that one is always changing) of their new Graphics Command Center app, which showcases the company's vision for a graphics control hub. The design is thematically coherent (read: it's blue), and is, for now, of a simple layout. Enthusiast options are expectedly going to be added closer to or upon release of the company's discrete-level graphics architecture with Intel Xe, but the Command Center as it is showcases Intel's overall spirit to their graphics push. For now, features keep the minimalist approach of Intel's integrated graphics - this is more of a new coat of paint than a new enthusiast-grade Command Center.

Intel made a video available on its Twitter account, and announced an early access program for users that want to partake i the feature and usability development of the new Command Center. The new app is available through Microsoft's App Store on Windows.

Neato this is a huge upgrade over the CP they have had.

I am actually hyped up about Xe GPU! After so many years of Nvidia monopoly and AMD incompetence we finally have some fresh blood.

Yes i like the looks, BUT... It's just a new "skin". Give us more control over graphics settings instead!

I’d love to see Intel just take their existing design, expand it out and make a 150-200W dGPU out of it. Maybe it wouldn’t be super competitive, but what if it could make for another good mid-range card?

What? Who didn't love "messy paint girl" in their old Control Panel, which was like 1 out of 2 graphics in the whole thing? :laugh:



Personally, I think there is a special ring of hell for her, but maybe I just hate children... hard to say. Both, likely.

Damn RTB. You just made me feel like a better person. Maybe I am not so bad after all.

Yeah, hopefully this is a clean start that happens to support the same settings for current gen but is more expandable for the Xe lineup.
I find the emphasis on driver and controls as an important recognition that hardware alone is not enough. Hopefully there will be more substance than style in the future.

:D I had completely forgotten, thanks for the reminder.

Indeed my friend. I have lived long enough to learn that every man has his own vices and inner demons.
