In the latest operating system of Windows 11, Microsoft brings the Dynamic Refresh Rate feature, which can help increase or decrease the refresh rate as needed. With a high refresh rate on a screen, of course, the power consumption that will be used is also getting bigger. To overcome this, Microsoft through an announcement on the DirectX Developer page, released this Dynamic Refresh Rate (DRR) setting.
