Render API

Hi, everyone. I was wondering if someone could recommend me which DX12 or DX11 is better mostly for game project ? Not an arch. one. Does players with low-spec video cards going to have troubles if DX12 is only one API in game.

Hi Julian,

It looks like the GeForce 600 series was the first to support DX12. (Released about a decade ago)

The Steam hardware survey can give you an idea of general specs for peoples video cards.

So I’d say use DX12. I’m not sure about fallback support for older cards, but I do know that some newer systems like Nanite rely on DX12.



Thank you :slight_smile:
