Introduced last fall, the DirectStorage API toolkit, as it turned out, will only work on Windows 11.

Recall that we are talking about technologies to accelerate downloads in games by implementing the capabilities of ultra-fast SSDs with PCIe 4.0 interface. The DirectStorage API was originally created for the Xbox Series, but will be coming to PC as well.

Given the integration of the Xbox app and the Game Pass service into Windows 11, the presence of such an accelerator will clearly come in handy for many gamers. Although they will not only need a fresh OS, but also the appropriate drive.
