DirectX 12 test

NVIDIA has released new beta drivers for some of its its PC graphics chips. The beta drivers are the first that fully support Windows 10, with its DirectX 12 API.

The beta drivers, which have the version number 352.63, currently only support NVIDIA GeForce-based graphic cards from the 600, 700, and 900 series on desktops, and chips from the 600M, 700M, 800M and 900M series on notebooks. In addition, no notebooks from Fujitsu that use NVIDIA graphics chips are currently supported.

At the moment, there are no DirectX 12 games that can be played on PCs with these new NVIDIA beta drivers. Futuremark recently updated the Advanced Edition and Professional Edition versions of its 3DMark benchmark with a new API Overhead feature test that does use DirectX 12. However, the company said that it is not a GPU-based test and should not be used to compare graphics card performance. We will have to wait a little while longer for DirectX 12-based games to come out for a better comparison.
