DirectCompute 11
DirectCompute 11, helps improve PC performance by taking on some or all of a DirectX 11-enabled application’s processing load, freeing up the computer’s main processor to take on additional tasks.


DirectX® 11-enabled applications are designed for fast performance on your PC running Windows® 7. For example, there are programs designed for Windows 7 that can convert (i.e. transcode) a digital media file to a different size or format faster with Windows 7 than previous versions of Windows.
Windows® 7 with built-in drag and drop transcoding is a great example how ATI Radeon™ HD 6870 Series GPUs provide an exceptional experience for the upcoming operating system.
