Microsoft Announced DirectX 12
Filed under: MICROSOFT, DIRECTX 12


During the GDC 2014 in San Frascisco, Microsoft and some of its partners (NVIDIA, AMD, Intel and Qualcomm) announced DirectX 12, as well as the brand new DX gaming API.

Word is that DX 12 will bring significant improvements for developers to all of MS platforms, which of course, Xbox One, Windows Mobile and PC. Also, the new gaming API gives devs a chance to spread tasks across multi-core CPUs, which means the CPU is less strained.

MS also showcased DirectX 12's cross-platform approach via Forza Motorsport 5, which was running on a PC utilizing an NVIDIA graphics card.

Of course, when pressed for more on this particlar matter, MS said they have no plans to move the Forza franchise to other platforms at this time.

you can't say this is your car, or same is your car, and then, on the same sentence even, say how it's different from your car.
it's not very smart.

So current GFX card won't be able to use DX12?

Will take 5 years to implement and we will be on Windows 9 or 10 by then.

They can keep DX12 if it needs a new Graphics Card. I can't afford anymore PC upgrades!
  Avus: New graphics card or new Windows, which one will you …

"Also, the new gaming API gives devs a chance to spread tasks across multi-core CPUs,"
