The Xbox Game Bar tracks which apps are using up memory

Microsoft released a new Xbox Game Bar update for Windows 10 this week.

The app now allows users to track which apps are consuming RAM, CPU, GPU, and hard drive resources.

There are many applications that can do this from a PC, but the Microsoft Xbox Game Bar app has been integrated into Windows 10, so it has some flexibility and small size.

The new Resource tool tracks the most important tasks and impacts associated with those tasks and categorizes them as low, medium, or high.

You can monitor applications by pinning tasks to the desktop to monitor them, or you can close applications without ending or exiting the game.

The tool has two methods: a default view for quick identification of resource consumption and an advanced view for more detailed information.

This resource tool differs from the performance tool, which allows you to monitor general system usage.

Microsoft has also added the ability to closely monitor memory usage by GPU and Graphics Processing Units (VRAM) in performance tools.

You can customize the tracked metrics in the tool's settings. Microsoft made changes to the Performance Tool based on player feedback.

If you want to know if your PC is ready to use the latest version of the standard (DirectX 12 Ultimate), there is a new section in Settings (Xbox Game Bar) for a simple answer.

The DirectX12 Ultimate standard promises to standardize graphics technology for PC games and Xbox Series X platforms and supports variable rate ray and shadow tracking, grid shadows, and feedback sampling.

You can now download the updated Xbox Game Bar app. If you haven't seen these tools, check the app (Microsoft Store) for updates.

The app can be used with most PC games, allowing users to instantly capture and share screens, find new team members, and chat with Xbox friends through Xbox consoles using small gadgets on phones and computers without leaving the game.
