    How to Check Windows Display Driver Model Version for WDDM Support in Windows


    Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM) is the graphic driver architecture for video card drivers running Microsoft Windows versions beginning with Windows Vista.

    It is a replacement for the previous Windows 2000 and Windows XP display driver model XDDM/XPDM and is aimed at enabling better performance graphics and new graphics functionality and stability. Display drivers in Windows Vista and Windows 7 can choose to either adhere to WDDM or to XDDM. With the removal of XDDM from Windows 8, however, WDDM became the only option.

    WDDM provides the functionality required to render the desktop and applications using Desktop Window Manager, a compositing window manager running on top of Direct3D. It also supports new DXGI interfaces required for basic device management and creation. The WDDM specification requires at least Direct3D 9-capable video card and the display driver must implement the device driver interfaces for the Direct3D 9Ex runtime in order to run legacy Direct3D applications; it may optionally implement runtime interfaces for Direct3D 10 and higher.

    WDDM versions for quick reference.

    Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM) 2.2

    Hi Robert

    WDDM 2.2 is not downloadable, if you are getting an error it means your video card driver needs to be updated to WDDM 22 or does not support WDDM 2.2

    Open Device Manager (accessible by right clicking your Start Button)

    Expand the Display adapters sectiob

    What video device(s) are listed there?

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM) version depends on the architecture of the display card that is designed by the hardware manufacturer, to update the WDDM version you will have to update the display driver from your display driver
    manufacturer, if you don’t use a graphics card, installing a new graphics card that supports latest version of WDDM will work.



    Additional information: Introduction

    and also check the
    WDDM 2.1 Features

    WDDM driver? Windows 8.1

    Yes nvidia driver packs usually have drivers for 7/8.1/10 (WDDM 1.2/1.3/2) all in one. Just download and install latest nvidia drivers (in this case version 10.18.13.6182). And Windows Update won't offer that optional update anymore.

    WDDM driver? Windows 8.1

    WDDM 2 is for Windows 10 /DX 12. It reduces workload on GPU virtual memory.

    Windows 8.1 has WDDM 1.3.

    Simply ignore that optional update. When needed install nvidia drivers from nvidia site not from Microsoft Update.
