When it comes to PC, Microsoft Window is the only platform that is capable of handling serious gaming and now Microsoft is working on a new “Game Mode” feature for Windows 10 that will enhance the PC gaming experience even further.
The next major Windows 10 update due in the coming months which will include a Game Mode that would enhance gaming experiences of users making it run faster.
The feature will make gaming “your PC’s top priority to improve your game’s quality.” It’s unclear at this time what Game Mode will do, once enabled. It’ll supposedly divert system resources, including CPU and RAM, to the game you’re about to play. That means the computer might shut down other processes that take up computing power to prioritize gaming performance.
To enable Game Mode, you have press Win and G while in the Game DVR panel. You’ll find the Game Mode option in Settings where you’ll be able to enable and disable it according to your needs.
Microsoft also added a new gaming-related feature in the new Windows 10 release, a Game Broadcasting utility that will likely let gamers broadcast their games.
In 2016, Microsoft acquired Beam, a live streaming video platform that focuses on video gaming, including playthroughs of video games and allows viewers to interact with the streams. ”We are building Beam as a feature of Xbox One and Windows 10, making Beam one of the easiest and quickest ways to stream your gameplay,” Mike Ybarra, head, Platform Engineering, Xbox, said in a statement.
Beam will connect to your Xbox Live account, making it easy to stream your favorite games to Beam and your Xbox Live community. Where you can play in organized tournaments or create your own, making eSports available for everyone. The company is also adding updates to the Activity Feed, so you can connect and share more with your gaming friends.
