Windows 10 Vs Windows 8 Game Performance Review, Major Titles On Microsoft's New OS
Xbox App & Conclusion
Adding insult to injury, the Xbox app requires you to run your game in Windowed Fullscreen, otherwise you will not be able to see the UI that pops up when you press WinKey+G. Hopefully Microsoft will fix that requirement with an update.
Beyond the lukewarm bench results, we’ve had no problems or
crashes with Windows 10. It boots faster than Win8 and the UI is clean and
intuitive. We don’t miss the touch-focused tiled environment and the reprised,
updated Start Menu is very welcomed. Speaking solely for gaming enthusiasts,
however. Our upgrade was fairly painless and now we’re ready for DX12. More
scrutinizing gamers may want to wait and see if the new API delivers on its
promise in real-world games, but for now it at the very least looks like Windows 10 won't sap any performance and in fact might offer a frame or two of additional bandwidth in spots.
