Cant enable dx 11 in amd catalyst center

hi.. I have an ati 5670 graphic card what settings should i use to enable dx11 tesselation.
the dx11 option cant be seen in max payne 3 only 9,10, and 10.1 also the tesselation option is grayed. I tried amd optimised, use application setiings with x64 but no use. I also forced the application with -dx11 but cudn't enable dx11. I had the same problem with crysis 2 earlier. Help please..

The card & Windows 7 are already DX11 enabled, nothing needs to be done. In this case it's the game that will determine if all 3 (Windows, video card, and Game) are running in DX11 mode. If the game is DX11 capable it'll either be automatic, or you'll have to enable it in the game's settings panel.

See step 6 here for an explaination - Tips on Troubleshooting Game Issues

See step 5 to get the latest DX (DirectX) files. Be aware the Windows already has DX11 installed, so what you're basically doing is making sure it and the other files, DX 9 in particular has the latest files.

Bottom line is if the game isn't DX11 the system won't run in DX11 mode. It'll just run in the lowest mode of the 3. Example - if the game is only DX10, the system will in either DX10, or if the game allows you to go lower, DX9.

Again read step 6 of my guide.

BTW Crysis 2 is only DX11 capable if you install the DX11 patch. Otherwise it's only DX10.

Good luck.

Somehow I get the feeling you didn't understand it. Please re-read the post. It explains how DX11 works in relation to games.

And to be clear... the DX11 Crysis 2 patch you installed is only good for Crysis 2. Nothing else.

If a game isn't DX11 capable, you will not have DX11 features running.

Good luck.

Also if the features are Greyed out on your card most likely it is done for a reason that game is a Video card hog and simply a Hd5670 is bottom line

It could be the card is not capable of playing at higher settings just at the one you already have

Sorry for not being clear but i've mentioned that i have uninstalled crysis 2 now. I'm not trying to play max payne with crysis patch and may payne 3 is a dx11 game.

well with max payne you need to have the latest DX driver which you go to Microsoft.com and get it but the one you might need is to redownload the SDK and see if that cleans up the issue

But i don't think it will play in 11 it always shows running dx 10

Not sure what you're saying or alluding too but.....

The card's drivers are not going to gray out any DX11 features. That's not how the catalyst drivers work.

The DX11 portion of the video card is hardware based, not software, which means the "drivers" have nothing to do with whether the card is DX1 capable or not. In short you can't install drivers to make a video DX11 capable. Which is why you have to "buy" a DX11 capable card. Same with Nvidia.

And to be clear... the 5670 is a DX11 Capable card.

Item 3 under step 6 of my Tips on Troubleshooting Game Issues....

3- The video card must support the Mode(s) ATI 5000 series cards, Nvidia GTX 470, 480 (more?) See Windows 7 Compatibility Center for compatible cards.

And according to bit-tecn.net - Max Payne 3 Graphics Analysis | bit-gamer.net Max Payne is a DX11 game, but as I said earlier, it needs to be enabled in the game's settings.....

True.

DX11 is not blocked at either the game or driver level.
