Microsoft has today announced that they would be rolling out a new update for Windows 10 today which will bring support for AMD’s Freesync and NVIDIA’s G-SYNC to Universal Windows Platform games. Also, Microsoft is today bringing Framerate locking fixes which they reported as coming later this year in March 2016. They will be adding unlocked framed rate for the UWP apps and games.
As a direct response to your feedback, we’re excited to announce the release today of new updates to Windows 10 that make gaming even better for game developers and gamers.Later today, Windows 10 will be updated with two key new features:
- Support for AMD’s FreesyncTM and NVIDIA’s G-SYNC™ in Universal Windows Platform games and apps
- Unlocked frame rate for Universal Windows Platform (UWP) games and apps
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.
