Outriders: Should You Use DirectX11 or 12

The differences between using DirectX 11 and 12 in Outriders are actually pretty significant. If you have the PC for it, 12 will allow you to run DLSS, making the game look a hell of a lot better. Problem is, this is fairly unoptimised at the moment, with many players reporting stuttering and slowdown when running DirectX 12. If this is the case for you, consider using 11, as it’s recently been patched to offer a much smoother framerate for low to mid-range PC settings. You can always back out and choose a different setting if it isn’t working for you, but generally you’ll want to pick DirectX 11 for a smoother experience.
