Enabling Intel Integrated Graphics
With Intel’s 7th and 8th gen processors, Intel’s iGPU now packs some real power, which allows applications like XSplit VCam, XSplit Broadcaster or XSplit Gamecaster to use Intel’s integrated graphics to offload process intensive tasks which can lead to an overall improved gaming and streaming experience.
On some desktop gaming motherboards or pre-built desktop PC systems with a discrete NVIDIA or AMD GPU, the integrated GPU is sometimes disabled in the BIOS by some manufacturers, but users can easily enable the integrated GPU themselves.
- Reboot your computer and enter the BIOS settings
The key to be pressed to enter the BIOS settings will be shown upon boot. Commonly F2 or DEL.
- Enable Intel Integrated Graphics
Enabling this will vary depending on your motherboard.
This is usually found under the Advanced BIOS settings called IGD Multi-Monitor, iGPU Multi-Monitor or Intel Integrated GPUHere are examples from the most common motherboard manufacturers:
ASRock: Advanced > Chipset Configuration > IGPU Multi-Monitor > Enabled
ASRock: Advanced > North Bridge Configuration > IGPU Multi-Monitor > Enabled
ASUS: Advanced > System Agent (SA) Configuration > Graphics Configuration > iGPU Multi-Monitor > Enabled
BIOSTAR: Chipset > System Agent (SA) Configuration > Internal Graphics > Enabled
Gigabyte: Chipset > Internal Graphics > Enabled
Gigabyte: Peripherals > Intel Processor Graphics > Enabled
EVGA: Advanced > Graphics Configuration > Internal Graphics > Enabled
MSI: Settings > Advanced > Integrated Graphics Configuration > IGD Multi-Monitor > Enabled
We recommend consulting the user manual for your specific motherboard for more details.
- Save your BIOS settings and reboot your computer
- Once Windows has loaded, install the latest Intel Integrated Graphics drivers.
We recommend using the Intel Driver & Support Assistant.
