Game ModeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s designed to focus your PCÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s resources on the game youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re playing in order to increase frame rates. It does so by tweaking how Windows handles allocating tasks to both your processor and your graphics card, Xbox program manager Kevin Gammill revealed in a series of interviews.
Game Mode for any game at any time by pressing Win + G to bring up the Windows Game Bar while youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re playing it.
Game Mode also follows in DirectX 12Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s footsteps by optimizing how your CPU behaves while gaming. When the featureÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s enabled, Windows will dedicate a given number of your CPU threads to the game alone, forcing all background software and processes to fight over the scraps. The baked-in overhead allows your game to run smoothly even if CPU demands suddenly ramp up, resulting in more consistent overall performance.
