New “goodies” for gaming on Windows 10. Microsoft releases significant update to Xbox Game Bar

Microsoft has released a significant update to the Xbox Game Bar in Windows 10. The update brings new features that let you manage resources and performance without leaving your game.

Now users can quickly and without leaving the game find out which applications are taking up valuable resources of memory, processor, video card and storage. Of course, there are plenty of add-ons and apps out there that already have this, but the Xbox Game Bar is built right into Windows 10, which offers obvious benefits.

You can call the Xbox Game Bar by pressing the Win + G keys. The new Resources widget allows you to see which applications are using system resources, and most importantly, close them without leaving the game. By default, the user can immediately see the worst “eaters” or switch to advanced mode and study the details.

The developers have also updated the Performance widget based on player feedback. Now he can precisely control the use of GPU and video memory, as well as choose in the settings which metrics you want to see.

To find out if a computer is suitable for DirectX 12 Ultimate, just open the Xbox Game Bar settings and go to the gaming features section.

Microsoft has already begun rolling out the Xbox Game Bar update. Additional widgets can be installed from the Widget Store.

For example, the Gamecaster is an additional layer built into the Xbox Game Bar that allows you to pin a semi-transparent widget inside the game and track events and chats while streaming. In addition, ASUS has released an update to its Armory Crate software with a new Xbox Game Bar widget. Players can easily switch the five HyperFan modes right there.
