Square Enix, Crystal Dynamics and Nixxes Software announced that starting today, Rise of the Tomb Raider PC will support DirectX 12 on Steam and the feature will be coming soon to The Windows 10 Store.
By adding DirectX 12 support to Rise of the Tomb Raider, processors will be able to spread CPU rendering work over all CPU cores, without introducing additional overhead. This will enable users with high-end graphics cards but low-end CPU to run the game at higher frame-rates, graphical settings and other technical enhancements like never before.
The update is already integrated with NVIDIA’s GEFORCE Game Ready Driver: http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/99512/en-us
