Windows 11 promises more gaming features

Auto HDR, DirectStorage enhancements planned in next OS

Posted on

Microsoft has recently announced Windows 11, its next operating system. The company also hinted at how it will optimize your gaming experiences.

The new OS promises Auto HDR, a unique capability which automatically adds High Dynamic Range (HDR) enhancements to games built on DirectX 11 or higher that previously only leveraged Standard Dynamic Range (SDR). HDR allows a supported game to render a much wider range of brightness values and colors. This technology was first included with Xbox Series X|S consoles.

With a high performance NVMe SSD and the proper drivers, Windows 11 can soon load new games faster than ever thanks to a technology called DirectStorage, which also debuted as part of the Xbox Velocity Architecture featured in the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. With DirectStorage, which will only be available with Windows 11, games can quickly load assets to the graphics card without bogging down the CPU.

Windows 11 will continue to support the new Xbox Wireless Controllers to mechanical keyboards and gaming mice, to the Xbox Adaptive Controller, surround-sound headsets, external GPUs and more.

The Xbox app will now be built into Windows 11, providing a more streamlined access to games.

Windows 11 is planned to be a free upgrade for Windows 10 owners, and is planned for launch in late 2021.
