Daybreak Games has released a brand new update for PlanetSide 2 that adds a DX11 renderer. This basically means that players on all types of compatible hardware should be receiving notable performance increases due in no small part to this update, but others as well.
As Daybreak Games stated:
“We announced our port to DirectX 11 on our 6th Anniversary. At the time, we were testing an early build and performance tests looked promising. It’s been a long road since then, but our full integration is complete! DX11 will significantly boost FPS performance on modern hardware and will give us a path for further optimization in the future. This is not a visual or gameplay update, so everything should look and play the same as it always has – just with better performance.”
