Unlocked Frame Rate and Freesync/G-SYNC enabled for UWP

Windows 10 is receiving a major update today which includes new features for gamers.

In a lengthy blog post, Microsoft says they are “listening” to gamers’ feedback and announced that Windows 10 is getting two key feature additions today.

There will now be support for AMD’s Freesync and NVIDIA’s G-SYNC in Universal Windows Platform games and apps. Framerates are also being unlocked for UWP games and apps. The post reads:

“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.

“A big thank you to those who have given us feedback. We read it all – the Window Store reviews, the reviews on gaming-focused websites, and even some of the giant threads on the various forums.”

      But are they relaxing the restrictions on things like editing INI files and DLL injection mods? Cos if not I’m still not interested.

      Still is and will be garbage to use/run/work with. Even with having a lot of people I know on xbl I’d not bother with using m$’s latest attempt to turn pc gaming into a closed marketplace. I’ve used xb0xlive before, and its a big pile of simplified shite. This is very much them trying to take small steps to turn pc gaming into the same thing. Controlled prices, casual easy to take advantage of customer base, and control over devs. Nope, dont, and stop.
