Is the hardware obsolete? Intel no longer optimizes CPU sets of 10 generations or younger

Nuclear show Intel has always been a pain, for a long time, Intel on the desktop processor USES a very old nuclear architecture, UHD 630 this nuclear show, from seven core processor used to 10 generation, use for four generations, the performance of the weak to players almost ignore it, as a dispensable.

The 11th generation core integrates the new Xe LP core graphics card on the desktop for the first time, which is the first change since the sixth generation core. Compared with the previous generation UHD 630, the core display is indeed greatly improved, and the theoretical performance is increased by 60% on average. However, the UHD750 is only at the entry level, and mainstream large-scale PC games will certainly not be able to run. There may even be some games that don't make it, not to mention the AMD Radeon Vega core next door at Su Ma's house, which is literally rubbed on the ground.

With the switch to the latest Xe architecture for its core processors and the introduction of its Arc line of unique displays, Intel announced that starting July 27, 2022, The core display of generation 6 to 10 processors (from Skylake to Comet Lake) will be moved to the older software support model, which means that the core display of these processors will not have game optimization in the future, just the usual critical fixes and security patches.

Intel's approach is similar to Microsoft's decision to stop supporting a generation of Windows and only provide security updates for older systems, which means that new features and game optimizations are basically out of the way.

According to the official announcement, the kernel display that still supports driver update and optimization is mainly Gen11, Gen12, DG1 and Arc series launched in the last two years. The products cover the 10 generation core mobile version Ice Lake, 11 generation Core Tiger Lake, 12 generation core Alder Lake. There is also the Arc A series standalone graphics card.

Comments from Editors: For PC users, this change almost does not affect, after all, the core display of the 6 to 10 generation core desktop processor is generally only used as a bright screen, even the card is not called bright, compared with the next door AMD Vega core display can be mild esports performance, so even if Intel continues to optimize and update the driver, Its game performance isn't much to look forward to. For laptop users, the core is suitable for office word processing, occasionally play a small game, the impact is relatively small.
