Microsoft unlocks frame rate and sync options within UWP games0 Comments
Microsoft's Windows has long been a platform sympathetic to gaming, but that doesn't mean that it's necessarily been ideal for gaming. The company has made numerous moves to make their environment more appealing to the video game world, including the controversial implementation of their Universal Windows Platform within Windows 10, but recent complaints of issues have convinced Microsoft into making a few smart adjustments.
Announced today through a blog post made to their official website, Microsoft have released updates to Windows 10 that unlocks the frame rate for UWP games and programs in addition to adding support for AMD Freesync and NVIDIA G-SYNC. It's a move they say is largely influenced by user feedback on the Windows Store and "reviews on gaming-focused websites," which is a nice pat on the back for those of us who spend their time sharing personal opinions on the gaming world through the internet.
Ahem. Anywho, the updates should be rolling out to user's machines very soon, and Microsoft have provided a direct link for those who want to get the ball rolling faster. They've also promised "exciting developments" regarding multiple GPUs within DirectX12 as well as a few DirextX 12-based titles to come around later this year, which ought to put a smile on Windows gamers' faces.
