No DirectX 12 for Windows 7
November 16, 2014, 15:45:19 CET | Colin

It's bad news if you're a die hard gamer and love your Windows 7 installation.

AMD's Chief Gaming Scientist Richard Huddy said at PDXLAN earlier this month that DirectX 12 will not be supported by the Windows 7 operating system.

DirectX 12 promises dramatically increased performance, thanks to reduced CPU overhead, better support for multithreading and a huge drop in power consumption.

Windows 7 remains Microsoft's most popular operating system with over 52 percent of all Microsoft OS users.

It should have been expected as Microsoft have not been shy in the past to use this as a marketing tactic or scheme to encourage their users into buying their newer operating systems.

The good news is for Windows 8 users; DX12 will be built in with Windows 10, and be supported by Windows 8.
