Found a link to this on Tweaktown, sharing it with my fellow TPUites. Enjoy!
lol, I knew it.
For anyone curious, my Windows had a whole bunch of updates to do tonight, this was not included.
DL now. Will give it a try.
This update was installed, if, you installed IE10 preview.
A platform update is available for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
Download here--> Platform Update for Windows 7 (PRE-RELEASE version)
In case anyone wants these:
Download location for Windows Internet Explorer 10 Pre-release for Windows 7 64-bit Edition and Windows Internet Explorer10 Pre-release for Windows 7 x86
Got it installed it no change in any thing at all. Not even showing up as DX11.1 That was a waste of time.
But you have a HD5870, so why would you expect it to show that?
I don't know I had DX9 cards that showed All the other versions, I just thought that might translate over. I do not know. I am a fucking moron!
The full DX11.1 probably won't be released until IE10 is then, at least for Windows 7. It must have fallen behind development schedule.
I wouldn't be surprised if Windows 8 already has DX11.1.
I think I has DX11.1 "support" now?!?!
Could be the cards level of support too, can anyone who hasn't installed the add-on see what theirs says, I forgot to look before i installed it
It's not a full DX package, it just updates part of the current DX 11 package to support some of the DX 11.1 features. My apologizes if the thread title is misleading.
Where it says "DirectX runtime version: 11.0" is the DirectX software version. "DirectX support version: 11.1" applies to the GTX 680. GPU-Z says 11.1 on GTX 680 too.
I has a sad then Any way to truly verify anything happened?
Thanks for the updates...
AdamHubby's system's gonna be getting a new SSD and he wants to stick with 7 but Imma use server 2012 on my new system.
Sure about that?
I agree with Ford...
Under "System Information" it states 11.0 and under "Graphics card information" it states 11.1.
If you wanna check try running dxdiag.exe and see what version it gives.
Hey thankyou for the tip mate, g1.
Agree about what? He said it applies to the 680 because sneekypeet has a 680. I have a 580 and it says the same thing.
All I know is that the 11.1 is coming from the NVIDIA driver, not from DirectX nor Windows. Maybe the GTX 580 and GTX 680 are 11.1 compatible already, maybe they aren't. I don't know. The important thing is, in the context of this discussion, is the "DirectX runtime version" which remains at 11.0. dxdiag should reflect that number also saying "DirectX 11."
And it said that for my previous 470's months ago. The NVIDIA control panel doesn't prove much.
The interesting thing is that even with a DirectX 11.1 compatible graphics card in Windows 8, the DirectX Diagnostic Tool still shows DirectX version as "DirectX 11". When I go to the display tab though, it shows my card as compatible with DirectX 11.1.
So basically no one knows if they're running DX11.1? I can't even find a definitive answer if my card supports it. I had assumed no but haven't seen that stated officially.
the link says this isnt DX11.1 - its just some updates for DX11.0 bringing it closer to 11.1
Strange, they changed "DDI Version: 11" in Windows 7 and earlier to "Feature levels" in Windows 8. They also don't call it 9.0a, 9.0b, and 9.0c, they call it 9.1, 9.2, and 9.3. I wonder where this all originated? Is that something in the drivers too or is that something in DirectX?
Exactly. It has some 11.1 libraries that IE10 requires. The full release of DX11.1 is like to be at the same time, or just before, IE10 on Windows 7 debuts.
