Windows 10 is is now the real deal, and at least 18 million people
have already upgraded to Microsoft’s newest OS. But you should know what you’re getting out of Microsoft Windows 10, especially when it comes to gaming, yeah Gaming!!!!
Windows 10 came along with new features centered on the Xbox app and games bar. Sadly, the release versions of these apps are limited in
functionality, and truth is you probably won’t have any use for the Xbox app
unless you are conversant with the Xbox. All PC users will benefit from the
games bar, but, its ability to stream video and still captures
from your games.
Gaming performance on Windows 10: a whole lot like Windows 8.1?
Beyond the introduction of DirectX 12, gaming on Windows 10 isn’t much
different than gaming on Windows 8. And when it comes to raw
performance, it’s not so different than gaming on Windows 7,afterall.
The wait for DirectX 12 continues
One of the major purported benefits of DirectX 12 comes in the form
of Direct3D 12, the newest iteration of the underlying graphics API. The
most prominent performance upgrade is a result of lowering driver
overhead and putting more control over VRAM and effects in the hands of
the developers. The boost to power efficiency and frame rate is staggering, or so Microsoft claims.
