0ne of the games I am ensured with (Ark Survival Evolved) recently released a patch which included Direct X 12 compatibility, which has been advertised to increase frames by up to 20%. FYI, you need to have a card that is DX12 capable. My GeForce GTX 760 is reported to be compatible. I upgraded to Windows 10, which feels pretty good (free upgrade), after I turned off the live tiles. I to the Nvidia site and downloaded that latest driver for it and launched the game. Up front, I noticed no significant glaring improvement in graphics quality or frames, but experimenting, I was able to increase many of my game settings to high without an undo hit to FPS. The problem is that I did not do comprehensive testing and document setting vs frames prior to the switch to DX12. However, it seems that I have been able to bump up graphic settings a bit. Mind you, this is on my PC (sig) not my Mac running Bootcamp and Windows 7. I briefly entertained the idea of upgrading to Windows 10 on my 2011 MBP but alas, Apple does not support this hardware and W10 although apparently based on online reports, W10 can be installed on it. Has anyone have first hand knowledge of successfully do I gbthiscwith an older Mac successfully? However, my MBPs video card is not DX12 capable, so I see no advantage of this upgrade unless it is a leaner more efficient OS with a smaller footprint, of which I am not sure about. Of note, I have a GTX 970 on order and looking forward to installing that. I will report back.
