If Windows 10 comes with DirectX 12 why DirectX 11.2 is only available
«If Windows 10 comes with a new version of DirectX 12, then why do I only available version 11.2?» – this question is asked many novice users who have installed on your computer «ten». Indeed, why is it so and is it possible to somehow install DirectX separately 12? To install DirectX in offline mode, but not the fact that you will get the latest version.
The most likely reason that your Windows 10 uses version DirectX 11.2 12.0 instead, is that the computer video card this version just does not support. Unfortunately, this problem programmatically is not resolved. There are only two ways: either to replace the video card for newer and more advanced model, or continue to wait and hope that the developers of the video card will add older models to the list of supported and will release them with the appropriate drivers.
Less probable cause is a logical consequence of the first. Alternatively, you can update the graphics driver and then try to install DirectX by downloading the installer from the official Microsoft website. But better, of course, before that, to look at the website of the manufacturer of your video card whether it supports the latest DirectX 12 at all. If so, updating drivers makes sense. To obtain the same information about the manufacturer of the graphics card in the DirectX diagnostic tool by switching to the display tab.
Note: to determine the version of DirectX on a PC can perform in the dialog window Run ( + R) dxdiag (a window «DirectX diagnostic Tool»).
