Microsoft has added a new option dedicated to PC gamers that helps in improving the PC gaming experience with Edge Efficiency Mode.
FYI, the ‘Efficiency Mode’ feature in the Edge browser helps in improving the performance of the browser by minimizing resource usage (CPU & Memory) and saving battery. It also has a Sleeping tab and Tab Fading features that do the same.
You might be wondering how it will improve the gaming experience, right? So what actually going to happen is when you’re playing a game on your PC, the browser will reduce its computer resources (CPU) usage so that more resources will be used by a game. As a result, offer a better gaming experience.
How to Improve PC Gaming Experience with Edge Efficiency Mode
