The Windows 11 2022 Update comes with additional gaming capabilities today ...

Windows 11 will receive its most comprehensive OS update starting today. The Windows 11 2022 update (or Windows 11 22H2) will include a number of new features, including some related to gaming.

The Xbox Game Bar has a new design, which is accessible via the Xbox Wireless Controller (or any other compatible controller) connected to the PC. this allows you to quickly select and launch your most recent games, or open up the many game launchers you have on the controller.

DirectX 10 and 11 games running in windowed and borderless windowed modes may run with reduced display latency (less lag), and they may support variable refresh rate (VRR) and Auto-HDR (newer games with DirectX 12 have supported all of these features in all window modes).

With this update, there will be an HDR Calibration app for HDR monitors that can now measure color accuracy and consistency. More games will also support Auto-HDR, unspecified enhancements to DirectX 12 Ultimate, and enhanced DirectStorage support.

Microsoft Edge has also introduced new gaming features, which the company encourages you to try (and to be fair, it's actually pretty good now). The majority of the changes will not be relevant to gamers in Southeast Asia, since the update will now include features that make games look better on the cloud.

If you use this browser, the new Gaming homepage, a new Games menu that allows you to find free casual games, and an Efficiency mode that cuts browser resources when playing might be something to look forward to.

The Windows 11 2022 update is rolling out today, although not all devices will be able to download it right now, but its availability will gradually expand to additional devices over the years.
