Windows 10 feature 2

Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17093 will come with Game bar and Graphics Improvements

Microsoft has detailed the new features that will be implemented in Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17093. Among them are some Game bar improvements (not performance-wise though), as well as some Graphics improvements.

According to Microsoft, Game bar got a makeover so it will be even easier to find what gamers will be looking for. Game bar settings will be easier to use, there will be three themes to choose from (Light, Dark and Default), and players will be able to quickly check the time using the new clock.

In addition, this new Insider Build will bring HDR Video on more Windows PCs. Microsoft is expanding HDR video access to more users via new tool. This tool will allow them to change the way HDR video appears on their devices, allowing them to find their preferred balance between details in dark scenes and details in bright scenes.

Last but not least, Microsoft will add new graphics settings for Multi-GPU systems. This basically means that gamers will now be able to choose whether they will be using their integrated or their discrete GPU in a number of applications. And no, this won’t magically force multi-GPU functionalities to your games.

As Microsoft noted:

“Once you’ve chosen the application, click on the application in the list and then click the “Options” button. The “Power saving” mode is a request to run the application on the most power saving GPU available. The “High performance” mode is a request to run the application on the most high performance GPU available. Generally, the power saving GPU is the integrated GPU on a system, and the high performance GPU is the discrete GPU or external GPU. If you have both a discrete GPU and an external GPU on a system, the external GPU is considered the high performance GPU.”
