Microsoft Confirms Game Mode for Windows 10
Today, Microsoft confirmed that Windows 10 will feature a Game Mode to improve the system performance while the user is playing PC games. Microsoft also releases the exact nature of how the new mode will work.
"Our vision is for Game Mode to optimize your Windows 10 PC for increased performance in gaming," head of Xbox platform engineering Mike Ybarra said in a post on the Xbox Wire. "This is a big update for Windows; we're looking forward to Insiders getting their hands on this new feature for further testing, and we'll have much more to share on what it is and how it works soon, so stayed tuned."
Ybarra also added on his Twitter account that Game Mode of Microsoft supports both Win32 and Universal Windows Platform games, which is an excellent key factor. When the leaked feature showed up in an update last December, there were speculations that it could be limited to just the UWP games on the Windows Store, this is something that would have dramatically reduced its interest.
Microsoft’s Description Of The Game Mode
According to The Verge, Microsoft’s description of the Game Mode on Windows 10 lists the feature as a mode to let a specific PC make gaming its “top priority to improve your game’s quality.” It is still not very clear on how the Game Mode will improve the gaming performance of the system, but it’s likely that Windows 10 will simply suppress the system processes as well as the other apps from taking too many CPU, GPU and RAM resources that are away from the primary game being played.
