Intel is ramping up towards its industry event at GDC 2019 next week, with the official Twitter page for Intel Graphics recently teasing the new control panel coming to Intel and its future discrete GPUs.
The new control panel lookks very Steam-ish and that's not a bad thing for me, and it's a vast upgrade on the aging look of NVIDIA's GeForce control panel. As good as GFE looks, the NVIDIA control panel looks beyond Plain Jane compared to the tease of Intel's upcoming control panel. Lots of work has gone into it by the looks of things, with large buttons and various toggles we'll get to play with.
Hopefully we see more of this during The Odyssey event next week, as the hype train for Intel's first discrete graphics card since the Intel i740 (how good was Trespasser on it!) arrives in 2020.
Intel has recently teased its graphics-related Odyssey event for March 20, which will take place during the energy that is the Game Developer Conference next week in San Francisco. The company has invited gamers, content creators and others to join its new Odyssey towards discrete graphics card and a renewed focus on the gaming audience in general.
You can sign up for The Odyssey right here, with Intel teasing it's "built around a passionate community, focused on improving graphics and visual computing for everyone, from gamers to content creators". At the event, you'll "get closer to the inner workings of visual technology development than ever before".
Intel will not be launching its discrete graphics card/s this year, with a focus on 2020 for that. We should see them detailed more throughout the year, with things seeming to kick off during this Odyssey event.
