This almost sounds like AMD's Radeon Chill, but for desktop on Windows 11 instead and for controlling the refresh rate instead of just limiting the frame rate. Allowing both the monitor and GPU to use less power and possibly run cooler when it's idle.

Windows 11 will be the first OS from Microsoft to support dynamic refresh rate, allowing a computer's screen to lower its refresh rate to save power.

stupid. Just an excuse to churn the users. In Windows 10, they added key features:
  1. power saving - turn off USB devices by default, don't tell anyone. Left engineers and developers ripping their hair out wondering why everything stopped working.
  2. Automatic reboots - left engineers and developers sticking needles in MS developers voodoo dolls, cursing their heritage.
Now Windows 11 is on the horizon. Mandatory UEFI nope, no thanks. Messing with the refresh rate - that won't be annoying.

Idea: fix your bugs. Fix your gaping security holes. Polish.
