    DX9? We have up to DX11 in Wine, hence most useful would be DX12 support.

        the majority of games use dx9 still now. Dx9 also implements the tessellation The lonely real improvements is realized by dx12 which adds Energy efficiency; Dx10 as Dx 11 have added some effects hardly increasing the resources consumption.

          DX12 actually performs worse than DX11 with most games on most GPUs (which is both sad and funny)

              So the best DX are still the 9 release.

                the further step, at least for MESA, should be the PHYSIC ENGINE (as physx) implementation possibly enabling the hardware acceleration of physic cards.

                  No, it should not.

                    Not sure where this mentality that DX9 is still the most widely used. Most games use DX11 unless their rather old unity early access games still on the 9.0c version builds.
