    Hi everyone!

    I was wondering if GTX660 Ti will eventually get to play WoW on DirectX 12 and if not what is the reason behind it because GTX660 Ti supports DirectX 12 API?

    The GTX 660 ti does not support DX12.

    EDIT: For clarification it will run DX12 games but it will see no added features in games with higher feature levels than DirectX 11.

    Its a little complicated but your GPU will not see any benefit from running it in DX12 besides maybe better CPU usage which in turn might help bottlenecking.

    My concern is that Blizzard will add multi-core CPU support in BFA patch 8.1 but I heard that only people who can use DirectX 12 will be able to activate it even tho it's more CPU related then GPU.

    I don't know why that would be the case but that is what I have heard as well.

    multi-core gpu support (like AOTS) is (at this point) more geared toward incorporating integrated graphics with a gpu than X-fire or SLI

    you don't need to have concern over something that will never happen.
