gfx.direct3d.prefer_10_1;true

Could someone tell me what this does?
Does it prefer 10.1 over 9 or 11?

Is this setting still needed these days?

thanks

lots do have it and most I see are having issues.
I do have it, cant remember why I put it there but it'd be nice to know what it does exactly.

It's a flag pref. it should never be touched or set manually by users.
It indicates that Goanna detected specific direct3d support and should prefer it over other features.
