Now here is a nice surprise. A few hours ago, Rockstar released a new patch for the PC version of L.A. Noire. This new patch adds DX11 support to this unique third person adventure game and it improves performance on many Windows Vista and Windows 7 setups using DX11 graphics cards. Unfortunately, DX10 owners won’t be able to take advantage of this new renderer. This update will be auto-downloaded next time you start the Steam client and you can view its complete changelog after the jump.

• Option added to game launcher allowing switching between DirectX 9 and 11 renderers
• Additional checks added that make sure a selected video resolution is fully compatible with L.A. Noire

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
