Windows 7: Windows 7 DirectX version

18 Mar 2009   #11


OHHH! Too much information for me Just say that it will perform better , faster or not on a same card nearly same visual settings compared to dx9. I think dx9 is far enough nowdays. But if dx10 or 11 is faster on the same level, then they're really better. For example Crysis was ran better in DX10 Vista than DX9 XP, for me! But in DX9 Vista it ran worse than XP, so I suppose DX10 is faster in that way

Hello all...

WEI reports that my DX version is 10.
Dxdiag reports version 11.

So, which is it?

WEI only shows up to DX10. One of those MS quirks.
If your showing DX11 in Sys Info you have it.

So your up to date.
