Microsoft has always been one of the most inclusive companies when it comes to developing and supporting gaming. And Windows 11 is no exception to this.

Windows has always been a great operating system for gamers, but Windows 11 offers a range of UI and quality-of-life changes, but Microsoft also claims it’s the best Windows OS for PC gaming.

The improvements in the latest version of Windows are not just cosmetic. They are all in place with the needs of gamers in mind: from mobile game streaming to better built-in anti-cheat software, Windows 11 is ready for your next big game session.

Below are few new features of Window 11 that you as a gamer should know:-

A new feature– Auto High Dynamic Range (HDR )

HDR can make games look especially impressive, if you get the settings configured correctly and if your display supports it. Before HDR imaging was a feature that could be enabled in games, it usually only supported games with this setting – but with the new Auto HDR which is being included as a Windows 11 feature, anyone who is using DirectX 11 or higher will experience it.

DirectStorage

It is exclusive feature that promote “Games can quickly load assets to the graphics card without bogging down the CPU”. It translates the performance can be faster loading which is always a good thing. This would be a significant improvements to game performance and loading.

There are requirements to use this feature. First, you need an NVMe Solid State Drive (SSD) to store and play the games along with DirectX 12 on your GPU with Shader model 6.0 support. This mean you need a newer graphic card and a decent SSD to experience the benefits of this feature.

Game Pass is going to be built in

The games on Xbox Game Pass are always getting better and better. You’re getting them for free in months when you have to pay the subscription fee, and you can access them right at home through Microsoft’s Game Pass app built into Windows 11.

It is easier to create virtual desktops

For gamers who use their PC for multiple purposes, this seem like a pretty neat thing to include. The ability to easily make multiple desktops that can be customised for things like work or gaming.

System requirement

The requirements for Windows 11 are not too different from those of Windows 10 and share the same core processor, RAM, and graphics card requirements.
