    It's nice that Auto-HDR will now also be supported on DX11 games. I find this feature a lot better than the game developers' native hdr feature. If you turn on auto hdr and then when in a game turn off the native hdr, auto hdr will kick in provided the game is being supported. Usually, a lot of Dx12 games can do this already, but it's nice to see that DX11 games also get this now. Oh, and yes you have to run the game at least once before auto-hdr kicks in. Hopefully, titles such as Elden Ring will now be able to be supported.

    Will this update finally allow HDR calibration? If so, then we can simply just use auto hdr and let windows use our calibrated values/profiles instead of messing with the game's settings...

    I myself don't play only new video games, also not all new video games use the DirectX 12 API.

    Not even that, except for AAA games, most new games don't even support DX12.

    Still plenty of games being release that use DX11.
    And in UE4 games, forcing DX11 it's still one of the best ways to reduce shader compilation stutters.

    Let's be real, name one DX10 game anyone actually plays today :p

    For DX11, that's mostly what all PCVR games today use.

    Let's be real, DX10 was a flop. Few games used it, as most devs preferred to use DX9.0c, and later, DX11.

    I see that games like e.g. Fap Queen 2 and Agent of Love are DX10 exclusive even though has been released in 2019.

    What's the baseline for the enhanced performance? Has DX10/11 never performed better on Windows until now? Or was it fine in the past, botched, and then sped back up?
