Does intel Arc support Dynamic refresh rate(DRR)?

Since it has been found that Intel Arc has high idle power. Solution includes setting screen refresh rate to 60Hz for lower power usage.

 

So I am wondering if Intel Arc drivers supports Dynamic refresh rate in Windows 11, this would mitigate that you manually need too switch refresh rate if gaming or just doing regular office work.

 

If not, is this a feature which may be added?

Hello etnivor,

 

We appreciate your patience.

 

After investigating this matter, we would like to let you know that Dynamic Refresh Rate is an Operating System Feature. This only applies to Laptops with a display that supports a Variable refresh rate (VRR) and a refresh rate of at least 120 Hz. For further details, take a look at the Microsoft article: Dynamic refresh rate – Get the best of both worlds.

 

It is important to mention that Intel Arc GPU supports VRR - Adaptive Sync; hence, if a System Manufacturer (OEM) were to introduce this support, it would likely be on Mobile Arc SKUs such as A770M or A370M.
