    I can see that Game Developers will indeed update new game releases for Windows 10 but I doubt they will for games already released.

    it is about adapting their game engine code to use the new dx12 feature levels.
    i do as well doubt that we will see special dx12 patches/upgrades for released games.
    but lately modern games most of the time use engines that have been used in previous titles so the code that has to be changed exists already. (see CoD franchise, or BF4 -> BFH)
    still if we are lucky we may see one or two dx12 mods/remastering popping up for triple A titles like witcher 3, gta 5, battlefield hardline. i guess it depends on the lifetime of the game support by the company it concerns.
    for example the Mantle API was introduced to Battlefield 4 via a game update. that means: never give up hope

    Yes I play COD AW on Win 10 and it plays great. Maybe Activision will update Games back to Maybe Ghosts but any prior to that I doubt.

    Did you experience an FPS increase from Windows 7 with CoD AW? Or didn't you play it on 7
    Because I only played it on 10 and I was considering trying it out on 7 because it is the only game that appears to be performing not up to my expectations so far. Maybe I have malconfigured something though ...

    I does play better on Win 10 than in Win 7. You have to watch how you set your video settings. I do not let Geforce Experience set them for this game But you use an AMD card so I don't know. I can find my settings and post them if you like?

    No thats nice, but it's ok. The info that it runs better on Win10 for you is enough for me.
    I will need to check the settings optimum for AMD then. I didnt invest too much time in it.
    It was just a WDDM 2.0 test I did with build 10041 some time and some fresh AMD drivers.
    Maybe things changed until now.

    I have found that MW3 plays better on Win 10 as well. So does Cod4 but Black OPs will install but without sound during game play. Strange..I did not bother to install any other games.

    If you look at this end of life Nvidia driver analysis on Kepler cards you can understand why I am using Nvidia driver 347.25. The issue is not just performance. Some less than others but every one of Nvidia's latest drivers with my 770 SLI setup will eventually produce a Direct x error/driver stopped responding scenario and lock up. I play BF4 mostly. My hardware is running perfectly and it's not BF4 because on 347.25 and older drivers I can play forever without issues. Even on Nvidia's 353.06 "Kepler Fix" driver the issue remains, just not as frequent.

    I refuse to change these cards which I paid $1,000 for not that long ago. So I'm locked into 347.25 or older drivers in order to play the games I have without issues. Can someone tell me if Windows 8.1 older drivers like 347.25 will perform just as well in Windows 10? Blackrose: I know you have Maxwell but I believe you mentioned you were using Windows 8.1 drivers in Windows 10. Not sure how 347.25 will work in the final release of Windows 10. Guess I'll have to wait and check the forums as I don't want to get locked into Nvidia's latest drivers if I upgrade to Windows 10. That's a deal breaker for me. If the older Windows 8.1 drivers don't perform as well in Windows 10 as they do in 8.1, I won't be moving to Windows 10.

    I was using 8.1 drivers in Windows 10 earlier, as the Windows 10 drivers would cause my computer to lock up while playing 3D intensive games. The latest W10 drivers have fixed that for me though. The only issue I see with using W8.1 drivers in Windows 10 is the lack of those drivers having DX12 Feature Levels.

    I am sure that many members, like me, are not au fait with all the techo speak. All we want is software and hardware that actully damn well works! Not that I am being critical, but sometimes , things can get way too technical and Whoooooosh! Over my head, erm, yes, ok I AM being critical

    My games are popular with me and 'never ending' and all I want is for them to work:

    Silent Hunter 4 -been working perfectly up to now, not new.
    Far Cry 2 - bug riddled but brilliant. I must be one of the top 10 in the world on 'how to' this game. I know every rock, floating rocks, and tree by name!!
    Doom 3 - yes! made when the Ark docked. Still as good and runs perfectly but via Steam, so 'tweaked'.
    Freelancer, original MS game from, I think 2001 or 2003 or something, using massive discovery 4,85 mod in it but still works perfectly.
    Unreal 2, the awakening - same story, old but works perfectly.
    These better run in 10, or its curtains for upgrade.
