    Microsoft Reveals World of Warcraft Now Runs on DirectX 12 on Windows 7


    I really have no idea why Microsoft is promoting this news, yet here we are. A new MSDN blog post was put up today by Jianye Lu, program manager at Microsoft, that talks about how World of Warcraft is a DirectX 12 game running on Windows 7.

    There are a lot of things simultaneously incredibly weird and incredibly interesting about this news. It marks the first major title to use DirectX 12 on Windows 7. That's pretty neat. However, DirectX 12 has largely been a Windows 10 exclusive API. It's actually been a pretty big reason behind pushing some people to upgrade to Windows...

  • Reminder: Steam to Ditch Windows XP Support on January 1, 2019

    Reminder: Steam to Ditch Windows XP Support on January 1, 2019


    In case you forgot, or were simply unaware, Valve will drop Steam support for Windows XP machines beginning January 1, 2019. This more than likely doesn't really impact you unless you are one of the 0.11% that are still using Windows XP as of the November 2018 hardware survey. Of course, Microsoft ended support for XP back in 2014, meaning it has already seen four years without security patches.

    Here is what Valve announced earlier this year about their Windows XP support ending.



    New year, new you, right? Maybe that should also apply to your operating...

  • Microsoft to Offer Free Upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 for One Year

    For one full year after the release of Windows 10, Microsoft will be offering free upgrades for those on Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows Phone 8.1.

    Microsoft made this reveal a short time ago today at their big Windows 10 media briefing today. Details are a little sketch on just how this program will work, however the reveal did note that this free upgrade will only be for a period of one year after the launch of Windows 10.

    With there being such a huge number of people still on Windows 7, this free upgrade for two generations of the operating system is fantastic news.

    DirectX 12 Will Not Appear on Windows 7

    AMD's Chief Gaming Scientist, Richard Huddy, said that DirectX 12 will not be supported by Windows 7 and below. Huddy made this reveal while speaking at a PDXLAN presentation earlier this month.
    "It's a very, very popular operating system.

    "One thing that's not going to happen to it is DX12. Yup, DX12 is not coming to Windows 7."
    This comes following a brief snippet where he notes that Windows 7 is still the most popular operating system at present, occupying 52% of all Microsoft OS users. He even notes that the 52% figure is actually growing despite the availability of Windows 8.1. DirectX 12 will be built into Windows 10 when it...
