Computer games, using a certain set of components called DirectX, included in the Windows operating system, directly access the audio and video cards installed on your computer. This greatly improves the performance of audio and graphics hardware.

The table above contains a list of DirectX versions pre-installed on Windows. There is no separate DirectX driver (any version) and components can only be updated through Windows Update . However, you cannot simply install, for example, DirectX v.11.1 on the Windows 7 operating system, only in conjunction with the platform update to 7 SP1 (KB2670838). And the newest v.12 or v.11.3 can only be installed after updating the system to Windows 10.

On your computer, you can see the version of DirectX:

  • In the search field, type dxdiag and click on the found element,
  • Look for the number at the bottom of the popup .
