I have a mighty new rig from DS with an RTX 2080 card. I've been playing The Division 2 for a month without realising that I can enable it to run in DX12. I changed my game settings today and did not notice much of an increase in FPS (because the game is capped at 60, duh) so what enhancements might I expect? Also, do all new games have a DX12 option, can older games use it and is there any negative aspect of running DX12 wherever possible? I'd appreciate a bit of a primer from a gamer's perspective. Many thanks, as always.

Yes, there's that but I don't think very many games have implemented it yet, have they?

It appears to me that The Division 2 runs even better with DX12 than it did on the same rig with DX11, so I'll take the optimization!
