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.”
