directx 11?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi sorry i'm new to forums and i'm not really sure if this topic belongs here. But i'll go for it.

I was just wondering how i know if my HD Radeon 6950 is rendering games i play in directx 11? Is there somewhere i turn it on in amd vision engine? Also another problem i have is my catalyst control center is gone and now i have amd vision engine? is this the new control center? I updated my drivers yesterday and that's what i got.

basically i want to run world of warcraft in direct 11, but everytime i select the option in the advanced graphics settiings of wow. I have a bunch of wierd problems. like if alt tab and come back into the game it looks really bad. so that leads me to believe my card isn't rendering in 11 like it should because it is dX11 compatible.

if anyone can offer some help on any of my questions that would be wonderful.

Yes AMD vision is the CCC, and to enable DX11, go into the desired games properties and simply select DirectX 11.

Are you saying enable it in world of warcraft? because that's what i'm doing and i'm getting a bunch of wierd errors, when it's working fine for other ppl and improving performance.

don´t worry, very few games are dx11, just look in the options,

dirt2 activates dx11 without asking, this is the only game doing that

yeah world of wacraft is, it has a drop down box to select either direct 9 or 11, i'm choosing 11, but mine isn't working properly like other people. i'm assuming it's just a wow error then but i can't imagine how.

What drivers are you using? Also, is your HD6950 1GB or 2GB?

Try uninstalling those drivers, and installing the newest 11.5a Hotfix drivers, and try again.

I have those, and with both of my HD6970's, WoW seems to be fine under DX11.

Also, please add your computer details into your profile so we know what you have, and we can help you out better.

Yeah that's what i've been reading that it's fine. I posted my system information if that would help diagnose whats wrong. Also i just updated to the 11-5 drivers.
