Steam Community announcement
heralds the release of a new patch for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
updates the action/RPG sequel to build 545.4 and adds DirectX 12 support along
with other fixes. They say DX12 may improve better performance on some systems,
but offers no visual or gameplay differences. Here's more on whether or not you
want to use this:
After the game has downloaded the DirectX 12 supported
build you can then toggle DirectX 12 from either the launcher window or from the
Display options within the game. Note that DirectX 12 requires a restart of the
game if (de-)activated from within a running Deus Ex: Mankind Divided game
o WARNING: Using the DirectX 12 API can offer better performance on some
systems, however, it will not be beneficial on all.
o Multi-GPU is not yet supported in this patch.
o If you encounter problems with DirectX 12, we recommend turning it off again.
There are no visual or gameplay differences between the two DirectX versions.
o As always, make sure that your drivers are up to date:
DX12-supporting driver for AMD graphics cards:
DX12-supporting driver for NVIDIA graphics cards:
Known DirectX 12 issue:
- There is a known bug that causes some very high end cards to regress relative
to DirectX 11. This bug is being addressed by the development team.
While we expect this patch to be an improvement for everyone, if you do have
trouble with this patch and prefer to stay on older versions, we have made a
Beta available on Steam, v1.0_build524.6, v1.0_build524.7, v1.1_build524.10,
v1.2_build524.15 and v1.3_build524.17 that can be used to switch back to
