    Do DX11 games receive any benefit from running in Win10?

    Will games that are not officially supporting DX12 receive any benefits from running in a DX12 OS?

    Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview x64

    I doubt it. Maybe some of the underlying improvements, but not most of them. When I had an AMD card, only games that had built in Mantle support (Mantle is a low level api similar to DX12) like Thief and Battlefield 4, were able to take advantage of it. I'd imagine it would be the same way with DX12.

    Which kind of sucks because I'd love to see what GTA V could do under DX12 on my GTX 970.

    I agree with blackroseMD1. These games are not written for DX12 and cannot benefit from what DX12 provide.

Running on 1 core out of 4
Did anybody check Advanced Boot options in Msconfig. Seemed to me that my computer is booting too slow, checked those options and lo and behold it's been set to one core only. !!!! After fixing that it boots and run much faster.
