Windows 10 will be obtaining a game mode to improve performance. It will do this by increasing the allocation of memory, CPU, and GPU while you’re running video games. This is according to a leak. This is supposedly going to happen with the Windows 10 Creators Update.
Windows 10 new Game Mode will improve performance while you’re playing video games
If this is a thing we really hope there’s an option to turn it on/off. Because it sounds good until you think about recording/streaming. If you are doing this on the same PC it might just kill performance on the recording/streaming software. Making it unusable.
Or MS is only introducing the game mode for their products. And everything else will not run as good. They have still not given up on being “the better Steam” however moronic (and actually risky) such an attempt sounds like.
Microsoft is trying to force PC gamers into its ecosystem again. Get ready for Microsoft to start forcing a console experience onto PC. Older games will stop working unless officially supported by the bad Windows store. Graphics settings will be locked by the all knowing MS. MODS will not work unless supported by the Windows Store i.e. only if Microsoft is getting a slice of the money made from them.
They tried this in 2008 with “Games for Windows Live” and two years later the platform was in the garbage bin. And they refused to refund games bought on the platform that stopped working!
Steer well clear of this everyone, MS have proven time and time again that they don’t give a crap about their users and they only want your money.
