Windows 10 – Fall Creators Update will improve Game Mode, goes live on October 17th

Microsoft has announced that the Fall Creators Update for Windows 10 will go live on October 17th. This brand new update for Windows 10 will improve Game Mode; a functionality that promises to allow players’ games to use the full processing power of their device as if it was an Xbox game console.

As Microsoft noted:

“With the Fall Creators Update, we’ve updated Game Mode, which allows your games to use the full processing power of your device as if it was an Xbox game console, right from a new button on the Game bar. And to take advantage of this power, we have a fantastic lineup of Xbox Play Anywhere games coming including, Cuphead, Forza Motorsport 7, Super Lucky’s Tale and Middle-earth: Shadow of War.”

Microsoft did not reveal any stats or benchmarks between the previous and the new version of Game Mode. And as we’ve showcased in the past, Game Mode does not bring a lot of performance improvements to mid-tier or high-end systems.

As such, this mode will most probably be useful to those with really dated systems. Therefore, we’ll simulate a dual-core system and we’ll run some benchmarks once the Fall Update goes live.

Stay tuned for more!

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
