Microsoft is making DirectX 12 a Windows 10 exclusive

36 sec read

Perhaps the biggest announcement for gamers at Microsoft’s highly-anticipated Windows 10 event yesterday was DirectX 12. PC gamers who intended to stick with their current version of Windows were undoubtedly disappointed by the news that Microsoft’s new API will be exclusive to Windows 10, meaning they’ll have to upgrade in order to experience it.

Yesterday at its much awaited event Microsoft made a few announcements that many of us were looking forward to. The consumer version of Windows 10 has finally been unveiled. Microsoft showed off the new features that it has been working on and all of the improvements that have been made to the OS. DirectX 12 was something that caught the attention of people interested in PC gaming and a report confirms that this API is exclusive to Windows 10. What this means is that the DirectX 12 graphics API will not be available for any other iteration of the operating system except Windows 10. PC owners who are currently on Windows 7 or Windows 8 will have to upgrade their OS to take advantage of DirectX 12.
