Pre-SP1 Performance Boost for Windows 7 DirectX 11 Graphics Platform

Quote:
Customers running the latest iteration of the Windows client can gain a performance boost for the operating system’s graphics platform.

Microsoft has released an update designed to improve the performance of DirectX 11 in Windows 7, as well as in Windows Server 2008 R2.

According to the Redmond company, the refresh is also set up to enhance the functionality of the graphics platform in the latest versions of the Windows client and server.

However, the software giant has offered little additional details about the graphics technology refresh delivered to Windows 7 and Windows server 2008 R2 customers earlier this week.

“This update is a separate package of changes that must be installed in addition to Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2. This update provides new functionality and performance improvements for the graphics platform,” Microsoft explained.

It won't install on my system. Says not available. Maybe because I'm already using SP1 beta?

Not sure where Softpedis got the idea this was a DirectX 11 update, as none of the files that get updated are DirectX 11 files,

An update is available for Windows 7 and for Windows Server 2008 R2 which provides new functionality and performance improvements for the graphics platform

Probably find this update has more to do with the upcoming release of Internet Explorer 9, and the fact that it will be using (or capable of using, if the hardware support is there) Direct2D.
