When starting the game bar we will be able to appreciate several widgets. One of these is the performance monitor that gives us an overview of the use of CPU, RAM, GPU and vRAMRegarding the resource monitor, we can see the applications that are running and how much they are consuming from our computer.
The widgets can be kept on the same screen while we continue playing. This will allow us to enjoy the game while we verify in real time how much we are consuming in terms of computer resources. Another thing we can do is see the apps that do not need to be running and if they consume too many resources, we can press on the “X” that appears on the right side to close them.
