Unlocked Frame Rate And More Now Enabled For UWP

It looks as though Microsoft has actually been listening to the complaints about Universal Windows Platform and is now taking steps to address some of those complaints. According to this blog post, UWP games will now have unlocked frame rates and support for AMD’s Freesync and NVIDIA’s G-SYNC. Thanks to Anarchist4000 for the heads up.

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-SYNCآ™ 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. This OS update will be gradually rolled out to all machines, but you can download it directly here.
