Microsoft DirectX is a collection of high performance APIs (application programming interfaces) that handle the tasks related to video/audio multimedia and game programming on Microsoft Windows operating systems. Consisted from modules that control their own individual spheres of gaming (Direct3D for 3D graphics, DirectDraw for 2d graphics, DirectMusic for music, DirectPlay for connectivity between user and PC, DirectSound for sound processing, and more), this API package provides perfect environment for both creating and playing innovative software that can be reproduced on every type of PC hardware configurations imaginable.
The Microsoft DirectX® End-User Runtime provides updates all up to its latest version of 9.0c, giving you access to the core Windows® technology which powers vast majority of high-speed multimedia and games on PC.
While Windows 7 is fully compatible with games and hardware that use older versions of DirectX, the new DirectX 9.0c features are available with a DirectX 11 compatible graphics card and games designed to take advantage of this new technology.
