Feature Request -Make the Display/Panel Fit from IGCC GPU Agnostic

Hi,

 

I would like to make a feature request for us Windows users.

Can you please port out the "Display" tab in IGCC (Intel Graphics Command Center) where you could change the display resolution, bit depth, refresh rate, and finally but not least the scaling mode (stretched, centered,etc) and make it GPU agnostic so it would work as long as the CPU is from intel? The option was named "Panel Fit" in older legacy Intel HD Graphics Control Panel; just in case you would like to reminiscence the good ol days.

I found that the "centered" display scaling mode works better than your  rival implementation for my TV. It would be truly great if you could develop a separate app that only deals with changing resolution and aspect ratio without requiring any GPU check. Currently this feature sets was limited to certain CPUand possibly would also not work for the most popular CPU for example : i5 12400f ( I cannot test as I don't own it but reading the FAQ from requirements this seemed to be the case)

 

Please let me know if this is a valid request, or if I should post the feedback to Windows forum instead. Thank you in advance and hope my request is feasible to make.

Hello redroof,  


  

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities. I understand that would like us to implement a new feature for the Intel® Graphics Command Center (Intel® GCC) and the Intel® Graphics Control Panel.


However, is not clear to me the exact goal of this implementation. Can you provide more exact details related to your recommendation?


Best regards,

Dear DeividA,



I don't specifically created a new feature request to existing IGCC. I only wished the specific bit with the app where you can specifiy display resolution, bit depth, and scaling mode (centered/stretched/maintain aspect ratio) were to be ported out into either Windows itself (hence I asked whether this is the correct forum to submit feedback) or if it were to be made without requiring any gpu drivers. Ultimately this seemed to be not possible because how tightly GPU drivers were required to modify these settings.



As I stated above, I found that the "centered" display scaling mode works better than your  rival implementation for my TV. To give an example  with my current setup with 2160p max supported resolution TV (e.g : A 4K TV) :



 I set my PC without IGCC, instead it got Nvidia Control Panel (NVCP) to 3030x1710 resolution via another software (CRU) and from there I picked the resolution IN NVCP with scaling mode to "no scaling" (the equivalent of "Centered" in IGCC). The result is the display will still be stretched/full screen. For it to work, I have to select the resolution picker from Windows' built in Display Setting not from NVCP.

Whereas in IGCC with my different PC, if I set my resolution to the equivalent resolution above, I can pick the relevant settings from IGCC and choose it to get "Centered" look and it will correctly display centered image with black corners around it as intended.



That's why I thought whoa wouldn't it be great if all intel CPU can do all this without having to rely if it has built in GPU drivers or (possibly) unreliable external GPU software. Heck yes! But perhaps its all a dream and maybe it is indeed Windows himself that's buggy.

Hello redroof, 



Thanks for the confirmation. I do appreciate your feedback, if you have any ideas or recommendations feel free to post them in our forums. I will send this to the team in charge so they can have it under consideration. However, I cannot promise that will be implemented, this will be something that the team in charge has to decide.


Please keep in mind that this thread will no longer be monitored by Intel.
