'Fortnite' DirectX 12 update boosts performance on high-end PCs


Fortnite is about to make better use of your fast gaming rig. Epic is rolling out an update to the Windows version of its battle royale shooter that adds support for DirectX 12. If you have a high-end graphics chipset, you should see "higher and steadier" frame rates thanks to both better CPU peformance and better distribution of 3D rendering tasks across multiple cores. Accordingly, AMD has posted new drivers that enable DirectX 12 support in Fortnite.
