    Seeing is believing, so I'll wait and see before I pass judgment.

    No its for DX11. all cards / games using DX11 have the potential to see this improvements if your fps are limited by CPU and that the game does have some overhead utilization of D3D11 api. at least that is what I understand from the article.

    and other dx apis too.

    I tested few cpu bound DX9 (only specific, not all) and I also saw those directdraw boosts r331 vs r334_89 aka 335.23.

    I don't think it affect other dx apis.Those where maybe just usual optimization done here and there.

    So it reduces CPU bottleneck?

    Yes, that is why it will affect more users that are CPU limited according to the article.

    ^ Hope so, that game really has a CPU problem. Only the GPU is making the work, if they can bring more fps in AC4 i wil be happy.

    Well if it allows me to play Assetto Corsa smoothly with 25 AI cars on track by reducing the CPU load then bring it on.

    Just remember it is optimizing for lower CPU usage but its not going to fix badly coded games .
    My guess it will raise the min fps in some games and make them smoother , just don't except a 10-20% increase across the board (that Star swam is the exception IMO) .
    It will only show up in certain conditions .
