Quote:The omniscient and enigmatic WalkingCat (@h0x0d) was first to spot the existence of a 'gamemode.dll' file in Windows 10 build 14997, which leaked earlier this week. According to the nomadic feline, Windows 10's Game Mode "will adjust its resource allocation logic (for CPU/Gfx etc.) to prioritize" the game being played.
To put this in simpler terms, it appears that Game Mode will optimize the entire OS around the game that you're playing. Operations that aren't essential to ensure the best gameplay performance and stability would be 'deprioritized', while more system resources are dedicated to boost the gaming experience.
There's still a great deal that we don't know about this new feature, including when it's expected to become a fully integrated part of the OS. While the Game Mode file is in the latest internal builds, the feature isn't actually working yet, and Microsoft has made no announcements about its plans to enable it.
