With every new AAA title Nvidia and AMD launch new drivers for their graphics cards that provide best possible experience for the game through effective optimization. However, for some reasons some users are left unaware of these drivers, so to tackle this Microsoft will be bundling the drivers with the games on Windows store.

This automatic driver installation should improve the Windows Store and make an attractive proposition for PC gamers. However, there is one problem with the automatic updates as sometimes the latest drivers come with bugs of their own which can cause instability within the games.

In addition to this Microsoft has also announced its strategy for bringing the Xbox Wireless ecosystem to the PC. Xbox Wireless ecosystem is essentially a program that allows the Xbox accessories to work with Windows 10 PCs seamlessly without any third party drivers. This involves high-bandwidth, ultra-low latency, seamless pairing and smart channel selection across 2.4GHz/5GHz bands.

Microsoft announced at WinHec that it is teaming up with 8 partners to bring accessories that support Xbox Wireless in 2017. These partners include gaming headset makers Astro, Turtle Beach, and Plantronics.

During the event, Microsoft also revealed some details about Windows 10 Creators Update which will include DX12 API tools, broadcasting and multi-GPU utilization and more.
