    Re: Intel Graphics Control Panel updated to optimize games

    Do game-optimising apps actually work, ever?

    I remember asking about Nvidia's GeForce Experience, or whatever it was that's supposed to optimise your games based on your particular hardware combination, and everyone just said "NOOOOOOOOOOOOO.......!!!!!".

    I found the AMD one quite useful (Raptr) - It was never perfect but it gave you a good heads start on finding optimal settings as it based on other users feedback. You still need to tweak them sometimes but it sped things up. Shame its gone now...

    Now you get 16 FPS instead of 15 FPS.

    I've never had many problems with Nvidia's GE, it just adjusts the ingame settings, the only problems i've had are with cities skylines not working correctly and some ubisoft games not being able to be optimized, oh and plenty others not being detected.

    I can say I did quite like the AMD raptr program as it actually worked or got you very close very quickly. Likewise it sometimes adjusted things which couldn't be adjusted with in game options.

    Whenever I used it, the configured settings were much too high. I'd get peaks of 60fps, but a lot of the time was below. I suppose that's the problem with relying on crowd sourced settings, if everyone elses' settings are s**t, it completely defeats the point.

    I don't understand the purpose of tweaked game settings. I turn everything to Max. If my gfx card can't handle it, I lower one setting down.

    Re: Intel Graphics Control Panel updated to optimize games

    If a game doesn't have a benchmark you can use, it's nice to be able to dive straight into the campaign with settings pretty close to the ideal from the start. Nothing ruins a great opening scene to a game like stuttering with the wrong graphics settings
