NVIDIA Fermi GPUs gain DirectX 12 support

Posted on Monday, July 03 2017 @ 10:04:57 CEST by

At this point, I'm not sure if anyone was still expecting this feature but after many delays NVIDIA has finally released DirectX 12 suppport for its Fermi-based GeForce 400-series and 500-series video cards.

As reported by TechPowerUp, this feature got added with the release of last week's GeForce 384.76 WHQL drivers.

Whether this still makes sense as most of the Fermi chips are at least six to seven years old is a question we're not going to answer, but TechPowerUp speculates Windows 10's Creators Update may have been NVIDIA's motivation to finally live up to its promises:
The support appears to be sufficient to run today's Direct3D feature-level 12_0 games or applications, and completes WDDM 2.2 compliance for GeForce "Fermi" graphics cards on Windows 10 Creators Update (version 1703), which could be NVIDIA's motivation for extending DirectX 12 support to these 5+ year old chips.
