Windows 10 will soon allow gamers to track their GPU performance in Task Manager

Microsoft has rolled out a new Insider Preview Build for Windows 10. According to the company, the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16226 comes with a new performance tab in Task Manager, allowing gamers to track their GPU performance.

As Microsoft noted:

“The Performance tab shows GPU utilization information for each separate GPU component (such as 3D and Video encode/decode), as well as graphics memory usage stats. The Details tab shows you GPU utilization info for each process.”

This is a great addition, though we are pretty sure that most PC gamers already track their GPU performance via third-party tools (such as MSI Afterburner). Still, kudos to Microsoft for implementing such a requested feature.

In its current state, this feature is still under construction and Windows 10 Insider owners may encounter a number of issues and bugs.

This feature will come to all Windows 10 users at a later date!
