    Posted: 11 May 2011 at 8:19pm
was wandering if any wow players out their are having the same issue im having when using dx11. its a newly implemented feature that blizz just put out from the recent patch so it could have something to do with that, but when i have dx11 enabled and then i tab out and tab back in the game seems to go whacky, loss of detail and text, at the least and sometimes the whole game will just freeze up on me. cards i have are evga 570's sli btw. any feedback on this issue would be greatly appreciated

I have it enabled and have no problems like that, I do however find it hard to get the game back up "visibility" when I come back from a tab tho, but it happens with and without the dx11 selected. I usually have to wait 20 or so seconds and it comes up, rather annoying and I wish I could stop it from doing that lol

Though I haven't touched WOW since WOTLK, is the DX11 like a huge improvement to graphics? I saw an article that showed new "lava flow" but everything looks the same on my gf's computer... except the new lava flow.

You cant really tell a difference until you mess around in say some water and watch the ripple affect, not sure about lava. We might see some more effects in firelands when it releases tho.

I have the GTX480 and this happens to me all the time. well about 1 out of 7 times alt-tab'ing
 
"how I resolve this" - restart the game when is freezes or goes all blurry and wait to Blizz fixed it
 
and another annoying thing after the last few patchs is when you log in a different char in, you get disconnected from the server.

I have DX11 enabled on my system, ultra graphics settings. Tabbing in and out of the game client is a bit slow, but I haven't had any sort of graphical distortions. I would be curious to see if running in full screen windowed mode would make much of a difference.
