Microsoft has released a new version of the Xbox Game Bar app for Windows 10. It has the ability to track which applications are consuming CPU, RAM, GPU and storage resources. While many other apps have similar features, Xbox Game Bar is built into Windows 10 and is lightweight and flexible.

A new system resource consumption widget tracks tasks and their associated impact, which can be rated as low, medium, or high. The user can keep track of tasks by pinning the widget to the desktop, or even close applications without leaving the game.

This resource consumption widget for individual tasks is different from the performance widget, which allows you to monitor the overall use of system resources. Microsoft has also added the ability to track GPU and video card memory usage to the performance widget.

Finally, if a user is wondering if their PC is ready for DirectX 12 Ultimate, there is a new section in the Xbox Game Bar settings that will answer this question. DirectX12 Ultimate promises to unite the graphics technology for PC and Xbox Series X gaming.

Microsoft has already begun distributing an updated version of the Xbox Game Bar app. If the new widget is not yet displayed on the user’s system, the app needs to be updated through the Microsoft Store.
