Of course not, there is no DirectX 11 support yet.

If you want Direct3D command stream, aka csmt, it's available in wine-staging.

I think he refers to that patch to be fully developed and included in the mainstream, stable version. I too would like to see that :D

I managed to play Subterrain in Wine just fine and that uses DirectX 11 (or so my terminal output says) but maybe it falls back to DX9 mode somewhere??
