Anyone here using an Intel GPU?

Hopefully this is only for the Windows drivers?


Thanks, i hate it.


P.S. by default! :clown_face: :earth_africa:

I still have an old i5 2500 in my computing box, but I don’t use the integrated graphics. Besides, a switch to Ryzen 7 is planned for next year anyway. But thanks for the link.


Hi, I do:

  Device-1: Intel CometLake-U GT2 [UHD Graphics] driver: i915 v: kernel
  Device-2: IMC Networks USB2.0 HD UVC WebCam driver: uvcvideo type: USB
  Display: x11 server: X.Org v: 21.1.8 driver: X: loaded: intel
    unloaded: modesetting dri: i965 gpu: i915 resolution: 1366x768~60Hz
  API: OpenGL v: 4.6 Mesa 23.1.5 renderer: Mesa Intel UHD Graphics (CML GT2

I did a quick reading to the link you provided, and noticed "The Compute Improvement Program can be unchecked here, to ensure data collection is disabled. " and I could understand it is the same as NVIDIA.

The article did not mention what “installer” - or maybe it is me who does not understand. I just installed EndeavourOS and just followed defaults.

I noticed it says as well "where is says that CIP “does not collect your name, email address, phone number, sensitive personal information, or physical location (except for country).”. So, what is the problem?

My question here how is the “here” is handled in EndeavourOS? And what is the problem in collecting such data? By the way I am very pro privacy. Just discussing!


Yeah that’s why my question comment was hopefully that it’s only for the Windows drivers(or the proprietary drivers) since normally Intel(and AMD)gpu’s use the opensource kernel drivers.

I thought the same when I read it, he was talking about Windoze!
If -as you say- that in Linux open source drivers are used then we don’t have an issue.

To be clear, those drivers are for ARC GPUs. There are a pretty small number of these in circulation.

Even on Windows, most people won’t be impacted by this change, at least for now.


The drivers for the ARC GPUs are fully provided by the kernel since 6.1. On Linux, there is no installer or setup of any kind such as the article references.

I don’t think Linux folks can participate in this telemetry even if they wanted to. There is a download available for manually installing the telemetry software, but it is only available as an .exe:


I have 2 calculating machines with AsRock Arc Intel 380 gpus used as display on EOS.

Let me know if anybody needs to see some output of some commands.

I’ll gladly print them to standard output and on the forum thread.

Best Regards,


Looks like it has nothing to do with the GPU drivers, the Windows driver installer provides a telemetry app, it seems it’s opt-out. :face_vomiting:

Under the “custom” installer option that you have to activate manually, you get to select which components to install. The Compute Improvement Program can be unchecked here, to ensure data collection is disabled.
