Microsoft is officially supporting DirectX 12 on Windows 7 despite Microsoft’s prior refusal.

Currently, DX12 on Windows 7 is only available for Blizzard’s World of Warcraft. Microsoft is currently working alongside Blizzard and other developers to bring support to Windows 7 in select titles.

Microsoft does say that Windows 7 won’t see all of Windows 10’s benefits when it comes to DX12 performance. However, it should still offer a performance increase in supported titles.

This recent decision to support Windows 7 does seem rather unusual. With the OS’ support ending in 2020, leftover users should soon be moving to a newer operating system. But it is nice to see such an important update for a seemingly dying piece of software.

For those on Nvidia hardware, there will be specific drivers available to take advantage of the new DirectX 12 support on Windows 7.
