    Where to Download DirectX 11.2 for Windows 8.1

    From where can I download and install Direct X 11.2. I have a windows 8 net book. Recently I had upgraded that to Windows 8.1. The new update is faster and better this time. I am also adding some games in that. While downloading the game I found that new Direct X version is available. It is Direct X 11.2.

    I want the download link. I am unable to find that. Also does this new version will work on Windows 7 also? If yes then where to download that. I am sure it will be available separately for windows 7.

    Nope, the new version will not work on Windows 7. It is exclusively developed and designed for Windows 8.1 that enhances the graphical output of the system. It is amazing and smoother. The fresh video driver update allows you to have amazing graphic output. I had seen some news which says that the new edition of Direct X11 will come pre-installed in new windows 8.1 notebooks and tablet. Have a look at this, mentioned by Microsoft itself:



    I am not sure about the manual download link. Try to check the same under windows update. I am sure you will find something there.

    It is not available. You cannot find the new update of Direct X 11 under Windows Update. I am also looking for the direct download link. If I can find that I will try to test the setup on windows 7. I hope this might work. The new direct X will offer better support for those who have gaming pc. It has enhanced technology that boosts the texture output and gives you amazing features. I hope Microsoft will roll over some driver update for that.

    Well than we have to wait and watch for that. Direct X 11.2 is a new thing and everyone has eye on that. I had seen a short feature list that says this new update is going to add Direct3D support on your system. But it will work only on supported hardware. That means if your gpu does not support 3D then there is nothing you can do. It is not going to work. But still this new update plays a vital role in upgrading the graphic properties of a system.
