As you may know, Microsoft has worked a lot at Game Mode, a new gaming feature introduced in Windows 10 Creators Update. Its goal is to improve the number of FPS in games and to provide a smoother experience while playing.
When enabled, the Game Mode feature assigns more hardware resources to both the CPU and the video card, for the apps running on foreground. Some games are placed by default in the whitelist, but apps can also be added manually, to be Game Mode-enabled.
Microsoft estimates that the performance will be enhanced with 2 to 5% of its capabilities, meaning that the older computers could really benefit from this feature. Enable the feature, you have to go to Settings > Gaming > Game Mode.
Game Bar is yet another option that permits the users to take screenshots, start screen and audio recordings using key combinations, options which can be adjusted easily.
To tweak the settings from Game Bar, choose: Settings > Gaming > Game Bar.
The Game DVR function permits the users to adjust the video/audio recordings settings. To access it, go to Settings > Gaming > Game DVR.
Broadcasting enables the users to change a bunch of extra settings, ideal for the creation of videos that you want to broadcast live. To access it, go to Settings > Gaming > Broadcasting.
To add a game in the whitelist, to make it run with enhanced CPU and GPU performance, you need to press Windows + G while the game is open and then choose the option “Use Game Mode for this game”.
While it is not much, this new feature should be useful on systems with lower specs.
