How to Disable Anti-Aliasing on Intel Graphics Card

To disable anti-aliasing on an Intel integrated graphics card, you’ll want to access the Intel Graphics Control Panel or the Intel Graphics Command Center, depending on the age and version of your drivers. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

Using Intel Graphics Control Panel:

  1. Open Intel Graphics Control Panel:
    • Right-click on an empty area of your desktop.
    • From the context menu that appears, select “Graphics Properties…” to launch the Intel Graphics Control Panel.
  2. Access 3D Settings:
    • Once the Control Panel opens, click on the “3D” option to access 3D settings.
  3. Modify Anti-Aliasing Settings:
    • Look for a setting named “Anti-Aliasing” or something similar.
    • Set this option to “Off” or “Disabled”.
  4. Apply and Exit:
    • Click “Apply” to save your changes.
    • Exit the Intel Graphics Control Panel.

Using Intel Graphics Command Center (for newer Intel drivers):

  1. Open Intel Graphics Command Center:
    • You can find this in your Start Menu, or you can search for it using Windows Search.
  2. Navigate to the Game or Graphics Section:
    • If you have a specific game profile, you can select it; otherwise, navigate to the general graphics settings.
  3. Modify Anti-Aliasing Settings:
    • Locate the “Anti-Aliasing” setting.
    • Set this option to “Off” or “Disabled”.
  4. Apply and Exit:
    • Save any changes and exit the Command Center.

After disabling anti-aliasing, any visual jaggedness (often seen in diagonal lines) might become more apparent in games and graphics-heavy applications. However, disabling anti-aliasing might lead to a slight boost in performance, especially on systems where the integrated GPU is the bottleneck.
