Microsoft DirectX team today announced the release of new updates to Windows 10 that make gaming even better for game developers and gamers.
Later today, Windows 10 will be updated with two key new features:
- Support for AMD’s Freesync and NVIDIA’s G-SYNC in Universal Windows Platform games and apps
- Unlocked frame rate for Universal Windows Platform (UWP) games and apps
Once applications take advantage of these new features, you will be able to play your UWP games with unlocked frame rates. We expect Gears of War: UE and Forza Motorsport 6: Apex to lead the way by adding this support in the very near future.
This OS update will be gradually rolled out to all machines, but you can download it directly here.
These updates to UWP join the already great support for unlocked frame rate and AMD and NVIDIA’s technologies in Windows 10 for classic Windows (Win32) apps.
In the meantime, stay tuned to the DirectX blog on Twitter @DirectX12 for a post coming soon about DirectX performance! Or subscribe to ubilio and get these updates delivered directly to you.
What is the Universal Windows Platform and how does it relate to gaming?
The focus of the post is on graphics – for a broader understanding of UWP and gaming, the “Future of Game Development on Windows”, presented last //Build is a good place to start.
