Although not officially announced, rumours have it that Microsoft is working on to bring a new Game Mode to Windows 10 platform. As per the latest leak, an internal build of Windows 10 sporting the version number 14997 brings in a bunch of new features, of which one of them is the new Game Mode. As you would have imagined, the new Game Mode will direct more CPU and GPU power to enhance the gaming performance.
As revealed by a twitter user Walking Cat (@h0x0d) – “looks like Windows will adjust its resource allocation logic (for CPU/Gfx etc.) to prioritize the “Game” when running in “Game Mode”.
Interestingly, something similar to this has always been operational on Microsoft’s Xbox One. However, we are yet to find out if the new Game Mode will run for all the games or for the games available on Windows Store only.
Apart from this, the version 14997 also brings automatic blue light reduction, ability to install the OS via voice commands, enhanced theme settings etc. Moreover, The Windows 10 Creater Update which is dew early next year is tipped to come with all the above mentioned features.
Even though Microsoft’s Windows platform has evolved a lot since its inception, we have to admit that when it comes to power usage, Windows hasn’t reached that level yet. At the time of the launch, Microsoft claimed that Windows 10 will be more of an on going OS rather than a fix one-time OS which seems true after the company rolled out the Anniversary update and is now expected to roll out Windows Creators update.
