To the company’s credit, it has gone on to admit its failings with early implementations of adding its Windows 10 and PC gaming ambitions. As this week comes to an end, it seems that Microsoft is trying to go out and gain a good note
All those, who has purchase Rise of the Tomb Raider on Steam, they will now be able to pick up an update for this game, which enables support for Windows 10 exclusive DirectX 12 graphics API.
"For Rise of the Tomb Raider, the largest gain DirectX 12 will give us is the ability to spread our CPU rendering work over all CPU cores, without introducing additional overhead. This is especially important on 8-core CPUs like Intel i7’s or many AMD FX processors.”
Other benefits would include framerates, asynchronous compute and a never before seen level of control over NVIDIA SLI and AMD CrossFireX configurations, which would mean that as a developer you will now be able to take complete control over the system and ensure that the users is able to gain a wonderful experience with them.
The new DirectX 12 support seems like a valuable update for PC gamers, especially for all those who have gone on to purchase the game through the Windows Store or through Steam. Alas, the new update is currently available for downloading from the Windows Store; however, Steam gamers should feel free to update it as soon as they can. The update will soon be hitting the Rise of the Tomb Raider Windows Store version soon.
