Why am I not getting Direct X12?


I am using Windows 10.Direct X12 comes with Windows 10 but when I am using dxdiag command I am finding 11.2. What’s wrong?


To get DirectX12 you also need a DirectX12 compliant graphic card. DirectX 12 needs to be supported by your  graphic card, too. If it’s not, you’ll see an older version of DirectX installed.
