Recently Phil Spencer announced a number of updates for PC gamers that’ll be coming to the Universal Windows Platform on Windows 10, and today some of these updates are arriving.

On the top of the list is the ability to now disable V-Sync in favour of NVIDIA’s G-SYNC and AMD’s FreeSync, as well as adding the ability for unlocked framerate refresh for UWP Games.

“These updates allow for PC games built using UWP to support these technologies, just as classic (Win32) PC games can today. Support for unlocked frame rate and our partner’s technologies can improve visual fidelity by eliminating screen tearing, reducing lag and stutter, and other visual artifacts,” Microsoft announced in a press release. “Developers with games in the Windows Store can begin testing with these new features today. They can then release an update for their games to integrate today’s UWP updates.”

More information on future updates is still to come including updates for Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, Forza Motorsport: Apex, and more.
