Microsoft unlocks frame rates, adds G-Sync and Freesync support for Universal Windows Platform

Microsoft is taking some restrictions off UWP

Microsoft's Universal Windows Platform has picked up a few updates today that should make PC gamers happy. The latest Windows 10 update unlocks frame rates and adds support for AMD’s Freesync and NVIDIA’s G-Sync technologies, which help match GPU render and monitor refresh rates.

Forza Motorsport 6: Apex

Those technologies have been supported by platforms like Steam, Origin, and UPlay for some time, so Microsoft is essentially catching up by removing some arbitrary restrictions. Microsoft says it expects Gears of War: UE and Forza Motorsport 6: Apex to be the first UWP games to add support for the new features in the near future.
