    Default 8.1 Changes, can no longer maintain 5 Windows


    Hmm well this is a problem, not sure if it was due to changes in wow or not, but now in environments with lots of activity like raids or any world pvp with 8 or more, I cannot maintain 5 windows they just exit no errors or nothing, just gone I am seeing out of my 8 CPU cores 4 are between 90-100% and I never looked at this PRE the changes, anyone else having problems?


    Pre-raid CPU


    then once I get into combat it goes to 100% on 4 cpu's and then sometimes random but usually 2-3 will just exit with no errors or anything, I am still using DX11 so any of the new graphical changes should not affect me. It was usually always choppy once in 25+ raids but never dropped me.


    In raid/Player Heavy Environment


    now obviously the issue is CPU hitting 100%, at least to my eyes it is but the question is if I am on DX11 don't I avoid all those changes, or maybe it's just due to the number of people for 8.1.

    Going to give it a week or so I can do certain zones/areas fine so I am guessing it's an issue with CPU increase due to people returning 8.1 and world zones have more people gathered, even in dazzalor I can have one window close just from swapping focus windows.

    Patch notes stated game will default to dx12 if it is available, regardless of your settings. Kinda crap move on their part.

    Here is the patch note, it looks like we don't get the option to downgrade graphics api if your system is DX12 capable.

    This just means that if there is no pre-existing config, DX12 will be the default choise. After moving my config files to work with the new folder structure, I booted up my games and they all went to DX11 since the virtualized config.wtf files had it set for those characters.

    My 5 box setup took a bit of a performance hit as well, still using DX11. Everything is still playable but there is some stutter now and then.

    As per Google's instructions I ran dxdiag and it says that my version is DirectX 12.

    So obviously WoW thinks my system is not capable of DX12. I am running an i7 which I though had hyperthreading, wonder if I should just try DX12 and see what happens.

    That is just what the Windows OS is reporting.

    It's a setting in the game, so just change it to DX12 in the Advanced section if you want to use DX12. In addition to capable hardware, you need to be using Windows 10 if you want to take advantage of DX12, but obviously WoW can use either 11 or 12 seeing as not everyone who plays the game on Windows, is using Windows 10.

    I will try using DX12 and see how it goes, I do note in advanced settings I am still using DX11 maybe they decided not to default, but I will check and see.

    I honestly don't think it's an automatic switch because my system didn't switch. The way the patch notes are worded makes me believe that new installations run for the first time are defaulted to DX12 if they're capable of doing so, where as before, they were not.
