    So, I own a Macbook mid 2010. If I boot camp to windows 7, is it directx11 compatible? I would like to play some directx11 games....of course, nothing too fancy, perhaps a The sims 4 dx11

    There may be some confusion here...yeah, the part itself is Direct X 10.1 class...meaning it's SM4.1

    But it's also "Direct X 11 compatible"...like it has drivers and everything on Direct X 11 systems.

    And it's going to be a long time before something requires SM5.0. In fact I'm not aware of anything that requires SM4.0. There's still a lot of stuff that supports 2.0 (in fact Windows' desktop acceleration is all rendered with SM2.0)
