DirectX

The DirectX is a Microsoft's API,  developed to facilitate complex multimedia-related tasks, especially game and video programming. By downloading DirectX, an application programming interface, the user gets direct access to the system hardware, facilitating multimedia tasks.

The APIs you get when you download DirectX

  • Direct 3D. The most popular API, used for three-dimensional graphics programming and processing.
  • Direct Input. Processes data from the mouse, keyboard, joystick and other controls for computer games.
  • Direct Play. Used in network communications.
  • Direct Graphics. This allows images to be drawn in two flat dimensions, as well as the representation of these in three dimensions.
  • Direct Music. Plays music tracks composed with the Direct Music Producer.
  • Direct Sound. Plays and records soundwaves.
  • Direct Show. Plays video and audio with network transparency.
  • Direct Compute. It offers special jargon and instructions that allow different processing threads in the massive core processors to be handled.
  • Direct Setup. It allows you to install other DirectX components.
  • Direct ML. Performs artificial intelligence or AI processing, as well as other features. These have been added in the 2019 update for Windows 10.
    • DirectX Raytracing. Also called DXR, this is a feature that allows for real-time hardware ray tracing. It delivers a breakthrough in consumer-level computer graphics on GPUs, such as the Nvidia GeForce 20 series in 2018. This feature will not be available when downloading DirectX in its latest version but is an extension compatible with DirectX 12.

The 2018 Windows 10 update included the public version of DirectX Raytracing. Although developed exclusively for Windows, it has also been developed in open source for Linux Unix systems, and for Wine HP, the X Window System.
