Windows 11 adds new gaming features
Microsoft have announced new gaming features in Windows 11, and claim it is their best operating system for games. So what's new?
The headline feature is Auto HDR, which will automatically add High Dynamic Range colors to games supporting DirectX 11 or higher, something Xbox Series X/S already does.
Getaway driver: Windows 11 will also include exclusive new drivers for NVMe SSDs that improve performance with DirectStorage, which was also invented for Microsoft's consoles as part of the Xbox Velocity Architecture technology suite.
Gaming OS: Xbox Game Pass will be integrated into Windows 11 through the Xbox app, so there are fewer hoops to jump through in order to enjoy games on Windows 11. The other good news is that android apps will be made available, which will run natively and be downloadable from Amazon’s Appstore.
