directx 11 vs 9

Technical Support
i dont understand any of this directx thing so I have a question. how is directx 11 better than 9 in performance? isnt directx 11 more complex so it would require more juice? thanks for reading my question.
DirectX 11 is an overall more efficient API and the improved memory management really helps out. I'm not sure exactly how Blizzard implemented it to allow it to provide such large performance boosts, but they did. Chances are that it will only continue to get more efficient too thanks to continued work from Blizzard's developers and graphics driver optimizations.
