Had to laugh, could not help it.Kopogeroo said:I'm considered the God of gaming
I only play games that are worth for me playing long term.
It is the sort of information one would expect programmers/code monkeys to know.....SEANMCAD said:good to knowlaserit said:32bit XP has the 4gb limit 64bit XP does not.SEANMCAD said:XP has a ram limitation of 4gb, Windows 7+ does not.Mendel said:I'd still be using XP if that was still supported. Win 7, Win 8, and Win 10 have been pretty much a waste as operating systems. The only real advancements have been in Direct X 9, 10, 11, and 12, and they could have been made compatible with XP if Microsoft had really wanted to. They have always preferred that new features come with new Operating systems to keep their revenue flowing. Good for the business, but not so much for the customer.Phry said:If only UWP was any good, for gaming its not really much cop and objectively worse than games that don't use it, its probably one of the main reasons why Windows Store is not a good place to get games from. That Windows 10 is still not the main Windows OS doesn't help either, that the primary OS used by most Windows users is still Windows 7 is particularly damning, the only thing to date that Windows 10 has actually achieved, is that more people use it than use Windows 8, and is probably the main reason why if developers want to create games for the PC, then its usually Direct X 11 based, assuming its using Direct X at all that is, after all why would any developer create a game using only UWP if barely 1/4 of PC's could even run it? and of those a significant proportion are not even gaming devices.maskedweasel said:Not sure why this is "news" today, Microsoft mentioned they were going to do this at least a couple years back with the Windows 10 release. Part of the premise when they released details on the Xbox one S and the announcement of scorpio was that they weren't going to do generational consoles anymore and instead push the software so it's available across different devices.
It's been part of the long game for several years and the main reason why they pushed UWP.
This matters in high end gaming
32bit Windows 7 also has the 4gb limit.
Its a 32bit vs 64bit limitation.
