Customers running the latest iteration of the Windows client can gain a performance boost for the operating system’s graphics platform.
Microsoft has released an update designed to improve the performance of DirectX 11 in Windows 7, as well as in Windows Server 2008 R2.
According to the Redmond company, the refresh is also set up to enhance the functionality of the graphics platform in the latest versions of the Windows client and server.
However, the software giant has offered little additional details about the graphics technology refresh delivered to Windows 7 and Windows server 2008 R2 customers earlier this week.
“This update is a separate package of changes that must be installed in addition to Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2. This update provides new functionality and performance improvements for the graphics platform,” Microsoft explained.
In addition to being served through Microsoft Update, the refresh is also available through the Download Center.
The standalone downloads are tailored to 32-bit (x86) Windows 7 RTM and to 64-bit (x64) Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 RTM.
Works awesomely for me.
Precursor runs much smoother in DX11 as well.
