DirectX 8.1 has changed my life

Before DirectX 8.1, I was suffering from a constant inconsistent framerate. I would join a localserver and get 120 consistent FPS, then go into a skial 24/7 2fort server and get only 20. It one time was so bad that I was losing FPS during actions like revving up, rocket jumping, and detonator jumping.

No more!

I switched to DirectX 8.1, and as soon as I did I got a constant 24,000 FPS consistently. My ex boyfriend also messaged me saying he wanted me back, and I received someone else's mail which gave me 4 fleshlights. I am now not only drowning in FPS, but constant sexual pleasure (from both my boyfriend and the fleshlights) AND my boss said I'm getting a raise this week.

DirectX 8.1 has truly opened a new chapter into my life, and I am so very grateful for this. Thank you, DirectX developers.

Yeah well actually dxlevel 8.0 is better than 8.1 because it uses a version of Team Fortress, the Second Edition before Steam Pipe was added. This should reduce the chances of experiencing cheaters in your games (at least in my personal experience). You should also configure your DNS to get better framerates.

Little know fact, DX 8.0 provides MUCH better launch times as 8.0 < 8.1 because the Central Processing Unit looks up which DX level to use and it starts at 0 and goes up. #freeDX8.0

DX 8.1 only gives increased frame rate because it renders less stuff. In reality DX 8.1 uses an older pipeline that's only efficient on older systems. DX 9 is better on modern systems.

Since frame pacing is a thing, frame rate ≠ performance; frame rate + frame time + stability = performance. (Yes I realize y'all are joking around.)

Has AimIsADick ever posted a comment that hasn’t been downfragged lmfao.

At this point he’d write a post along the lines of ‘1+1=2’ and I’d begin questioning my entire education, believing it to be untrue.

even putting framerate aside, dx8 just looks better imo. less visual noise, easier on my boomer eyes.

Actually the real number is 214748364.7% faster, because frametime (NOT FRAMERATE) is calculated in 32-bit signed integers which can only hold one less than 2 to the thirty-first power and it is measured in MILLISECONDS not percents. The fact you think this makes me think you use windows task manager to check your motherboard usage instead of the superior cmd command @for /f "delims=, tokens=2" %p in ('typeperf "\Processor(_Total)\% Processor Time" -sc 3 ^| find ":"') do @echo %~p% which does not diminish your team fortress 2 performance, and doesn't send telemetry signals to microsoft when used therefore not causing your dns to be resolved, also improving your ping

it does what he says it does. The only command is typeperf which exists solely to deposit performance data and all he does is manipulate standard output with no output redirecting to a file, no piping to other commands, etc.
