This announcement is welcomed by the PC users as Windows 7 is still used commonly worldwide. Microsoft aims to overcome the incompatibility issues of Windows 7 users to play DX12 games this way; but of course better to remind, even though to this update, visual effects and graphics will be better in Windows 10 systems for DX12 supported games.

LinusTechTips shared a video yesterday saying that Microsoft is planning to cease the security update support from Windows 7 OS in one year's time. Therefore this update can also help users to experience DirectX 12 on their Windows 7 PCs and see the outcomes of this API and push them to have Windows 10 in the next period. So we can say Microsofts's policy to live up Windows 7 ''for now'' is also an investment for Windows 10 OS. You can watch the LinusTechTips's video below:

Video games have been my passion for as long as I can remember. I have been writing and managing in the game industry for more than 30 years. I've been playing Diablo 2 nonstop since it first came out.
