Does My Computer Support DirectX 11?


If you are using Windows 7 or 8 then DirectX 11 is installed as default. However if you are using an older version of the Windows then you will have to manually install DirectX 11 in your computer.

The relatively latest version of Graphic API has come to the market with new set of technology that will enhance the 3D graphics.

How to Install DirectX 11

If you computer does not have DirectX 11 you can go to the installation page of Microsoft and find out how to install the API.

The Microsoft page gives instruction on how to find out which DirectX version installed in your computer. Also they give suggestion on how to upgrade our computer system.
