Why. For you? That’s not the way it works and if you don’t like Microsoft you don’t have to use their products and it’s time for you to upgrade to windows 10 whether you like it or not and if you don’t like it too bad live with it
We all new this was coming, with the NVIDIA RTX announcement. If the game has NVIDIA RTX features why would they waste time optimizing for another API, maybe in a future update they will add Vulkan support with ray tracing extensions since they will be doing that on PS5 for next-gen.
Or, yknow, it's open-source, cross-platform, and still better than DX12 functionality-wise even on Nvidia.Why? Vulkan isn't the end all be all for graphics API so why make everything use that particular API? Oh let me guess, it is made by the GPU manufacturer that you prefer and that's why you want them to use it?
Yeah a lot of people went straight from 7 -> 10 via a new build / new system. But pretty much every Windows 8 gaming box upgraded to 10 long ago. This article is like "Sorry, those two guys that somehow are in this situation." Also as you said you can still upgrade.Who does this actually affect? Gamers never embraced Windows 8. I don't know anyone who built their own systems and installed Windows 8 on it. Anyone who has Windows 8 got it when they bought their Dell or HP 7 years ago and you're not going to be playing Cyberpunk 2077 on one of those. Also, Windows 8 users can still upgrade to Windows 10 for free using MS's media creation tool.
Why would they do anything for a retired product that’s not in service anymore? It would only cost them lots of money in development and testing for no return financially. I guess you still don’t get it?https://devblogs.microsoft.com/directx/world-of-warcraft-uses-directx-12-running-on-windows-7/
No reason why they could not have done it for Winodws 8 too.
