One of the Senior Product Manager Lead at the Xbox, Tila Nguyen, said in a blog post, “Now, the Xbox app will compare game’s performance on similar PCs to analyze how well we expect the game to run. If your PC does not run some graphically demanding game, then go to the game’s system requirements to know more details”.
