What Are Color Filters?
The Color filters have been available since Windows 10. It is an accessibility feature that helps to improve the visibility of elements on the screen for users with vision problems. This feature is very useful for users with color blindness because it can help distinguish the different colors on the screen and improve content visibility for users with light sensitivity.
Windows 11 Color Filters No Longer Add Latency or Hurt Gaming Performance
Microsoft has enhanced Windows 11 Color filters mainly in the following two aspects: sliders are added to control intensity and color boost, and Color Filters are optimized to reduce latency in games and videos played in full screen.
Color blindness severity often varies by person, so the ability to tune color filters to a user’s specific needs is important in helping them differentiate colors on their display. Now, you can make the filter more or less intense, depending on your preference.
In addition, previously, color filters could add an extra frame of latency and prevent some fullscreen optimizations from taking effect.
But now, Microsoft has optimized how Color Filters are applied to the screen by taking advantage of dedicated color matrix hardware on your GPU. This allows fullscreen optimizations for games and videos to be used without any added latency or performance impact.
