About DirectX

Editors Review
DirectX 12 is an exciting new API that may very well be the huge jump in graphical performance that we've been waiting for. The new API enables developers to get "closer to the metal," allowing for higher performance and more effective GPU usage, while other features like vendor-agnostic multiple GPU support promise more freedom to users. It remains to be seen how developers will take advantage of these features, but as it is, DirectX 12 is looking pretty bright.
Microsoft DirectX is the premiere API for multimedia under the Windows operating system.

DirectX is a subsystem that makes it possible for you to your computer to experience graphics and videos from various applications. Its many components are all essential to everything from 3D video games to video playback. The latest version, comes with many advances in graphics rendering and hardware support, that are going to be taken advantage of by future graphics cards and video games.

This redistributable installer lets you install or update DirectX components, and will automatically download any missing components as necessary.
