Today’s Xbox and PC gaming enhancements are helping Microsoft make its Edge browser a bit more gamer-friendly. Edge is getting a Clarity Boost to enhance Xbox Cloud Gaming broadcasts and an efficiency option to stop Edge from using PC resources when a game is being played, in addition to a new gaming-focused homepage and interaction with casual games.
The most intriguing new feature for PC players is the new efficiency mode. Enabling this efficiency option in Edge will help users of Windows 10 and Windows 11 and will prevent the browser from using resources while a game is started.
You may play without closing the browser and opening it again thanks to this function. Liat Ben-Zur, corporate vice president of Microsoft’s consumer services and software products, adds that as soon as you quit the game, Microsoft Edge will come out of Efficiency mode and resume normal operation.
Clarity Boost is another feature that Microsoft is including with Xbox Cloud Gaming. It is a spatial upscaling function created to greatly improve the clarity and sharpness of Xbox streaming games. Microsoft has been testing this functionality for the past six months, and an array of client-side scaling changes that will improve Xbox Cloud Gaming’s visual quality have made a notable difference.
Additionally, Microsoft has developed a gaming homepage for Edge that offers easy access to Xbox Cloud Gaming as well as gaming news, livestreams, and Xbox content. Microsoft Solitaire and other free-to-play casual and arcade games may be found under the new games menu inside Edge.
The most recent version of Edge, version 103, offers all of Microsoft’s new gaming capabilities right now.
