I am planning to upgrade my Windows8.1 to Windows10 but will DX12 work on Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000? Thanks for the answers in advance.

Here are some screencaps of my dxdiag:

Hello,

DX12 is not support on HD 3000 graphics.

But how come Microsoft says it does work? Here is their answer to my question above: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-hardware/dx12-work-on-intelr-hd-graphics-3000-windows-10/fc145d1c-1a63-4bdc-988d-52020212b4e2?auth=1

I just need clarifications whether if I should upgrade or not. Thank you.

In order for HD 3000 to work with DX12 a new graphics driver enabling support is required. There are no plans for any further drivers for HD 3000 graphics.
