DirectX 12 stvara Windows 7 prvijenac s najnovijim World of Warcraft Patchom



In what is likely to create a good deal of controversy along with a few cheers, Blizzard will be adding DirectX 12 support to World of Warcraft on Windows 7 thanks to a bit of effort from Microsoft. You might be wondering how that is possible? Well after seeing massive performance gains in WoW when Blizzard released their DirectX 12 update for Windows 10 in late 2018, resulted in the company wanting to bring those performance improvements to gamers still holding out on Windows 7. To facilitate this, they began talking with Microsoft who after getting a great deal of feedback from Blizzard decided to act on it. To achieve this Microsoft decided to port the user mode D3D12 runtime to Windows 7, which will unblock developers, thereby allows them to take advantage of the latest improvements that the DirectX 12 API offers while still giving full support to customers on older operating systems.

Za sada je World of Warcraft prva igra koja se izvodi u DirectX 12 na Windows 7 s najnovijim zakrpom 8.1.5. No, oni neće biti zadnji jer sve više programera radi na prenošenju DirectX 12 igara na Windows 7 s još najave. Microsoft je, naravno, preuzeo na sebe kako bi podsjetio sve da će najbolji mogući rad s DirectX-om i dalje biti na Windows-u 10 zbog brojnih optimizacija za OS. Koliko je to istina, tek treba vidjeti, ali za mnoge curmudgeone koji još uvijek drže Windows 7, to će se vjerojatno shvatiti kao oblik osvete za držanje uz sada časni OS.
