What is DirectX 12?

It is especially useful for tasks involving games, videos, and other forms of multimedia on Windows PCs and laptops. DirectX 12 is the most recent version, which was released in May 2019.
At the moment, only the GeForce RTX series graphics support DirectX 12 ultimate and its features. The GeForce RTX 3090, 3080 (Ti), 3070 (Ti), and 3060 (Ti) series laptops, TITAN RTX, 2080 (Ti), 2080 Super, 2070 Super, 2060, and 2060 Super only support DirectX 12. If your Windows PC does not have any of the above-mentioned graphic cards, you can disregard this post because it is not supported.
