    How to test your PC's DirectX 12 performance today

    The final release of DirectX 12 and Windows 10 is months away but if you're itching to test your system's DX12 theoretical performance today, here's how you can do it.

    First, you'll need to have the 64-bit version of the Windows 10 Technical Preview installed. The 32-bit version is not supported. Earlier preview builds had DirectX 12 components aboard but it will take the latest one (build 10041) to enable the DX12 functionality. If haven't installed Windows 10 yet, here's everything you need to get it up and running.

    Once you've installed it, check the version number by looking in the lower right hand corner of the screen. It should say "Windows 10 Technical Preview Evaluation Copy, Build 10041." If you're running a previous build, you'll need to update the system.

    I'll have to try it out later after Bitdefender Internet Security 2015 is through running it's full scan in Windows 8.1. I already have Windows 10 TP 10041 and 3DMark Advanced through Steam. I didn't know the recent 3DMark update had the DX 12 test in it. Will try it in a few hours. Have 10 on one ssd and 8.1 Pro w/Media Center on the other ssd in dual boot. Bitdefender just finished. Trying it after restarting 8.1 and then going into 10.

    Just so everyone knows 3DMark only runs 1 DX12 test currently.

    I noticed a drastic reduction in gaming performance on 10041.

    In my case I wouldn't say drastic, but build 9926 certainly performs better in gaming...

    I lost about 15 to 20 FPS on average. It was insane.
