# 1 Direct 3d - Which mode?
11-16-2013, 12:53 PM
Since the S8 patch, I see a new graphic mode:
Direct3d 11
Direct3d 9ex <-- New
Direct3d 9

I still use v9, since I know v11 was listed as Beta for some time.

So what's this new 9ex? Does "ex" mean experimental? What did they add/change to make this different than regular v9?

Hi. I answered this question in another thread already, so I'll just link that.

TL;DR: Use D3D9ex if you can.

OK thanks. I switched to D3D9ex; don't notice any visual differences but if it's more efficient that's great.

From that thread sounds like I'm right to avoid D3D11.
