    More updates regarding Xbox Gaming

    With this upgrade of Xbox, Microsoft had to work alongside them to ensure that this support does not fall off and fail. Developers within Microsoft were asked to improve the streaming quality of the games. The stream capture mood needed improvement and they started working on making the programs better.

    The aim is to improve latency speed to 72ms for the new Display Details API. To experience this in its best form, Direct capture is being formed accordingly. The buffering and overall speed is also improved to be as smooth as possible.

    Details about latency, buffering, resolution etc in Microsoft Direct Capture.

    The problem with direct capture which is still under work is that it doesn’t support high resolution. The highest resolution is 1440p which can be captured by Direct Capture which eliminates dynamic resolution and HDR yet.

    The problem of limitation is to be solved soon with all types of games being supported on Microsoft and on the Xbox support system.

    Final Thoughts

    Honestly, the Xbox gaming mouse/keyboard addition is a great upgrade for Xbox cloud gaming. Now you won’t have to switch to a controller just to play a game exclusively on Xbox cloud gaming or skip it if your controller is broken. Hope that it helps others and provides PC gamers satisfaction in using their trusted gadgets.
