It appears that Microsoft is trying to make Windows 10 more appealing for gamers and game developers and on that note they’ve announced today that their new update will be focused on making the gaming performance better. The new Windows 10 update is oriented towards games that support DirectX12 and the Universal Windows Platform and Microsoft’s goal is to appeal more to the gaming industry as a lot of feedback has been given.
The update will be gradually rolled out on all Windows 10 devices, but it can also be downloaded directly from Microsoft’s official page, where you can also find all the information you need about the latest update. More importantly, the main features that the company announced are unlocked frame rate for Universal Windows Platform (UWP) games and applications as well as support for AMD’s Freesync and NVIDIA’s G-SYNC in the same UWP games and apps. Also, there are new Windows 10 updates being prepared in the near future, which are going to focus more on developing the DirectX 12 performance, but until then expect better support for UWP games.
Windows 10 gaming is trying to prove that it can reach expectations and that it is constantly checking it’s feedback to bring better updates in response. One of the best step Microsoft did towards making the operating system more adequate for gamers and game developers was to partner Microsoft Studios with DirectX developers and create popular games like Quantum Break, Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, Forza Motorsport 6: Apex, Rise of the Tomb Raider and more, all which are DirectX 12’s key titles. Unfortunately, for those who have a hybrid laptop, meaning that it has an integrated and a discrete graphics processor the unlocked framerate still won’t work, but Microsoft promises the issue will be solved with future updates.
