The big change from Microsoft to Windows 10 updates will be great news for gamers

In the past, updates to Microsoft’s DirectX 12 API, which provides various features and effects for compatible games and hardware, have been linked to updates for Windows 10, but it looks like that will change with the DirectX 12 Agility SDK (Software Development Kit).

The idea behind this, according to a Microsoft blog, is that “developers can now add the latest DirectX 12 features to their games, and players can play games with those features without having to upgrade their OS.” This should mean that the new DirectX 12 features in gaming come into play much faster.
