I saw a difference in the lighting on dx11 mode. It looked nicer, more natural than dx9 mode. The windows on ships also look better in dx11. Under dx9 they just look as if they've been pasted on (badly) while under dx11 they seem to fit in with the ship rather better.
Unfortunately, when s7 went live I had to disable dx11 and revert back to dx9 due to performance issues (dx11 is suposedly more efficient than dx9 and should therefore be faster). I began getting lower and less reliable frame rates compared to how it was before s7. Frame rates were lower and the game was stuttering a lot more.
It's a feature that seems to have been worked on for a little while, then abandoned.
