    Is Windows 8.1 DirectX 11.2 a Problem?


    There were some reports in August that graphics card manufacturers have no drivers for this new DirectX 11.2 standard that MS has developed and will release with 8.1. Is this a concern for those (probably all of us) that have graphics cards which do not support 11.2? Any reason to wait until the graphic card drivers are available?

    Or is this just a concern for those who buy games in the future that need DirectX 11.2? Some links with additional info.

    I have Windows 8.1 RTM installed on three different computers with three different graphics cards with no issues to date.

    Unless software (game) is designed for 11.2 this should not be an issue.

Some of the games I have seen have the options to select which one to use, dx9 or 10 or 11. Honestly, I have just a little approximate knowledge of what these do most of them from experience. - dx9 runs smoother (just for me i suppose) - dx10 just adds shinys and i did not really use it....
