It's ironic that by the time RTX 3000 series and most likely RX 6000 series GPU's are readily available Intel's GPU release won't be that far off. Though I doubt Intel will be very competitive at least in the first round of product release.

I'm still pissed they abandoned the iGPU on my 5775C. DCH spec was put out by MS way back and they don't give a damn about "legacy" customers. Lets see how long they keep driver updates around for the 1st generation of these cards...

None of those are DCH drivers, so they won't work with the software Intel has been working on since then (see their fancy control panel including gaming profiles that requires DCH drivers).

"Microsoft is moving to a new Universal Drivers architecture starting with Windows® 10 October 2018 Update. This represents a shift in our Intel® Graphics Drivers. "

2nd June, 2015, that was the release date on my 5775C. So glad Intel is on the ball! /s

Why would you want game profiles for a 5 year old IGP?
