[15-09-2016] PC Patch notes for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Patch build 545.5
We have just released another PC patch for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, v1.4 build 545.5_P6. This patch focusses on critical issues that were reported by users during the last week after the awaited DirectX 12 Graphics API release.

This patch will be applied by Steam automatically when you next start the game. If your game does not update, please restart the Steam client.

The following fixes are in this patch:
  • Fixed a DirectX 12 crash at start-up.
  • Reduced DirectX 12 CPU usage for better performance.
  • Slightly reduced system memory usage.
Release of DirectX 12 support in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided:
Since build v1.4 build 545.4_P5, users are able to utilize the awaited DirectX 12 Graphics API. To activate this you are required to do the following:
  • Within your Steam Library, right-click on Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
  • Select ‘properties’ from the context menu and navigate to the Beta tab.
  • From the dropdown menu, select dx12_preview then close the window.
After the game has downloaded the DirectX 12 supported build you can then toggle DirectX 12 from either the launcher window or from the Display options within the game.
Note that DirectX 12 requires a restart of the game if (de-)activated from within a running Deus Ex: Mankind Divided game session.

o WARNING: Using the DirectX 12 API can offer better performance on some systems, however, it will not be beneficial on all.
o Multi-GPU is not yet supported in this patch.
o If you encounter problems with DirectX 12, we recommend turning it off again. There are no visual or gameplay differences between the two DirectX versions.
o As always, make sure that your drivers are up to date.

Known DX12 issue:
- There is a known bug that causes some very high end cards to regress relative to DirectX11. This bug is being addressed by the development team.

While we expect this patch to be an improvement for everyone, if you do have trouble with this patch and prefer to stay on older versions, we have made a Beta available on Steam, v1.0_build524.6, v1.0_build524.7, v1.1_build524.10, v1.2_build524.15, v1.3_build524.17 and v1.4_build545.4 that can be used to switch back to previous versions.

We will keep monitoring for feedback and will release further patches as it seems required. We always welcome your feedback!

I think I read something that SLI Support will be added with the full release of the DirectX 12 support, because right now the current DirectX 12 is more or less like a beta, if I remember correctly.

Woohoo, will try DX12 when I get home. Thanks Nixxes for the continued effort.
Good job, guys. Happy to see these frequent patches!

Really hope that multi-GPU will soon be supported. Right now I'm struggling to get 30fps in 4k with my 1080s.

Can you supply us with your DXDIAG file (Windows Start -> Run -> DXDIAG), and the contents of your ../Documents/Deus Ex Mankind Divided folder? Then we can forward that to development and have them look into it. Post the files on any online file storage system of choice and post the download link here. Thank you.

Why'd you bother with DX12 Vulkan is where it's at.
