Intel Graphics Command Center

Today, Intel launched Graphics Command Center app for Windows 10 devices and it can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store. Intel Graphics Command Center is a new and modern application to help consumers control game settings and GPU-related functionalities. There are several advanced options for optimizing the experience with Intel Graphics.

The Intel PCs currently ships with Intel Graphics Control Panel which is a Win32 application and fails to match the UX of Windows 10. The new Graphics Command Center is a significant update from Intel’s legacy UI design for its previous graphics control panel application.

Intel says consumers need PCs with latest Windows 10 update installed and 6th generation Intel Core processors or newer to install the app. Most of the devices should be able to install this app.

“You’re tired of our ‘old, boring, corporate-looking’ Graphics Control Panel. We were too and we designed a completely new one from the ground up! We’re incorporating the changes you – the gamers, home theater enthusiasts, professionals, and everyday tinkerers requested,” Intel explains.

Intel Graphics Command Center also comes with Microsoft’s Fluent Design elements and it has a sidebar on the left. The sidebar allows users to navigate between Display, Video, System, Support and Preferences settings.
