Intel IGCC Update Includes New Skins, Power Menu and More 1-Click Game Optimizations

A new build of the Intel Graphics Command Center was made public this morning. Intel has updated IGCC to version 1.100.1241.0 with several new features including:

  • New display information page
  • New system power configuration page
  • New background themes: Ice lake, Gamer, Creator and Waves
  • Improved display color calibration
  • More games added to auto-detect and 1-click Optimization libraries
  • Various UI and stability improvements

IGCC Power Profiles

PC gamers and enthusiasts will be happy to see that Intel has added a system power configuration page to IGCC that can be found under the system menu. This page allows you to set what Windows power plan you are currently running, and be able to enable or disable the panel self-refresh and adaptive brightness settings. You can also change the graphics quality and dim bright images to enhance the power efficiency of your device. This is important on laptops where battery life is critical. Now that Intel Project Athena has been announced we understand why these options are in IGCC as the company is going to great lengths to improve battery life. Down the road we hope that Intel lets us look under the hood a bit more on the power page and maybe show the power state of discrete graphics card. It would be neat to see how much power it is using, what state it is currently in and so on.

Intel now has four background skins available for use. Each skin (Ice lake, Gamer, Creator and Waves) is shown below in order.

Being able to customize the background for IGCC is a nice touch to help personalize the application. We aren’t sure if Intel will let users apply their own skins locally, but it feels like that would be a simple and logical thing to allow down the road.
