Fortnite's 11.20 update brings DirectX 12 to the game - Promises Enhanced Performance

Fortnite's latest update has added DirectX 12 support to the game, promising PC gamers enhanced CPU performance and increased GPU performance with "high-end" graphics cards. 

DirectX 12 is now available within Fortnoite's Advanced graphics options menu. CPU-wise, DirectX 12 is said to offer gamers superior resource allocation across multiple CPU cores, a change that will benefit players with high CPU core counts. 

Moving forward, Epic Games wants to add new features to Fortnite that are "made possible by DX12". At this time, it is unknown what these features are, though it is possible that Epic Games are referring to raytracing, given how Microsoft's DXR API only functions under DirectX 12. 

AMD has already released optimised drivers for Fortnite's planned DirectX 12 mode. More information about this driver is available here
 
Patch 11.20 for Fortnite also brings back daily challenges, adjust the contrast of the game's UI and increases the effective health (health/shield) that's given by slurp tankers.
