Softpedia notices Microsoft has published a pre-SP1 performance boost for Windows 7's DirectX 11 graphics platform. The update is available through Microsoft Update, or can be downloaded manually here (32-bit) or here (64-bit).
According to the Redmond company, the refresh is also set up to enhance the functionality of the graphics platform in the latest versions of the Windows client and server.
However, the software giant has offered little additional details about the graphics technology refresh delivered to Windows 7 and Windows server 2008 R2 customers earlier this week.
“This update is a separate package of changes that must be installed in addition to Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2. This update provides new functionality and performance improvements for the graphics platform,” Microsoft explained.
