Microsoft officially started supporting DirectX 12 in the Windows 7 operating system. So far, however, in very limited volumes – in the game World of Warcraft, which has been almost 10 years old. Now, they say at Microsoft, developers will have the opportunity to use all the advantages of current versions of D3D12.
Soon, the software corporation will stop full support for Windows 7 and will begin to actively push users to switch to the current Windows 10 operating system. In the past, The Verge notes , Microsoft has improved DirectX, thus motivating users to upgrade the OS version to a more recent one.
In this regard, support for DirectX 12 in Windows 7, which is about to retire, looks unusual.
