Question

windows 7 --> no directx 12 --> worse gaming experience?

Hi everybody, i'm using windows 7, i have a good pc (intel i7 16gb ram...) and the only reason i've choose W7 is for the stability, reliability and because i'm worried of loosing the compatibility with some programs that i use for the work. Recently i've bought an Nvidia graphics card that have directx 12. Now... DirectX 12 is not supported by Windows 7 this thing can cause my graphics card not go to its maximum power? (SORRY FOR MY BAD ENGLISH but i'm italian Laugh )

Another things: i've found out this "directx 12 multiadapter" which allows the integrated graphics card in the processor and the graphics card (for ex Nvidia) to work together for better performance... is this worth the changing of the operating system?

Odd.

At the office we moved to all W10. Gamers I talk to don't complain about W10 stability.

I think you've been bamboozled.

I'm not a breeder

The programs I was talking about are not office programs. I am an audio / video technician and I use specific programs for ledwall or laser consoles. No one has bamboozled me but the decision about windows 7 was mine

As to your question

There are a few games that only run on the latest DX so you have to get to W10 for them. This does upset those that stayed back on W7.

It is your choice but the world is moving on, with or without everyone. You saw the same back and forth when XP passed. W7 isn't long for this world as you can't install it on some PCs for reasons like no drivers.
