It seems that Microsoft decided to democratize the influence of Mica in Windows 11. It is not very resource intensive, is it one of the solutions to boost the performance of the operating system?
We know the development team is there Windows 11 aims to improve performance in 2022. It’s focus and a call for a battle plan has already been made. In the meantime, changes are slowly happening in the operating system.
Adoption and democratization of influence Mica Accelerates. It allows a display close to the effect of “acrylic” but requires fewer resources. Microsoft is quick to promise that modern PCs will have no trouble dealing with it. To find out, simply open the Windows 11 Start Menu. The background appears translucent, revealing background tones and the windows behind it. In fact, this is not the case, it is opaque in order to lighten the device and speed up the rendering process. The office and various processes are faster and more dynamic.
The acrylic effect is one of the developments in Fluent Design in Windows 10. This semi-transparent effect has been applied to certain elements of the interface such as windows for example. This ambiguity, while interesting, is unfortunately resource intensive, especially on the part of the graphics solution (dGPU or iGPU). Suddenly, an impact on the performance of the PC as well as the autonomy of the laptops is possible.
Windows 11 and performance, mecha is democratizing
This simple note explains Microsoft’s choice to replace it with a new effect called mecha. Mica does not present any transparent appearance. Lets you think about it in terms of color gradients based on your desktop background. The idea is to provide a modern looking “color gradient” without any impact on system performance.
Mica has not yet been circulated to the entire facade. Microsoft takes it step by step. The effect has found its way into many Windows 11 apps. It ranges from photos to calculator to Edge browser and capture tool.
In a recent “preview”, Microsoft decided to go one step further by introducing the effect in the title bar of certain UWP applications such as “Tips” and “Feedback Hub”. Likewise, the Office suite in particular is expected to use Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, and Notepad. The redesign is underway in order to be as compatible as possible with the Windows 11 interface. The company does not hide it by noting that this new look for the office will create ” User-friendly, consistent and familiar user interface To fit the philosophy of Windows 11.
