    Confused about my directX version, anyone available to clarify?

    Hello, I have a corei3 3.10Ghz second generation processor which comes with an intel HD2000 (sandy bridge) internal graphics memory.
    When I was used to use windows7, I installed Directx 11 but it always showed 10.1
    I searched online and people said HD2000 wont support DirectX11.

    Few months ago when windows 10 came online, I upgraded my OS. and Suddenly my directX version is 11.1.
    I tried running "dxdiag" quite a few times and it was 11.1 without any doubt.
    Infact it seems like few games that didnt run on my pc before, are running fine now.

    What happened? Is it really directX 11? or its just showing that?

    If it works for you then it must be okay. Are you sure games tested where native dx11?

    I wonder whether it has something to do with the emulation features that I've read are included in DX12.

    Well im not that familiar with technicality, but when I was using windows 7 directx 10.1, I couldnt play Call of duty Black Ops 2, it used to run and then crush.

    I can play just fine now. Infact I completed the whole game.

    how do I know which games are native with directx 11?

    I guess technical details might be inside their manuals, or maybe in the maker webpage.
