Install it only if you have a high end rig, since you might get worse performance otherwise.
While DirectX 12 support hasn’t taken off to the extent that many may have expected it to, PC games still sometimes end up having DirectX 12 forks for Windows 10 users who are interested. The latest game to do that is F1 2018, which just launched a few months ago.
The DirectX 12 version of the game is still technically available in beta (which means it may not run as well as expected; it may not even run as well as the non DirectX 12 branch of the game). Codemasters says that high end PCs should be able to get faster performance with this fork of the game, but others may actually find it being more inefficient.
If you want to access the beta, right click on the game in your library, and select Properties. Go to “Beta”, enter the branch password 244EwzNFQkfnqf4Xc6GTmgsPtT6LAbYn and press “Check Code”. Close the window, and install it, and you should be good to go.
F1 2018 is out now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
