DirectX 12

DirectX 12 is out and about but we have yet to see many games taking advantage of the same. GamingBolt had a chance to speak to Jeremy Mortenson, product manager for Crucial DRAM, a brand of Micron Technology about the same.

Mortenson stated that with regards to games taking advantage of the API on Xbox One and PC, “As with most product transitions, it will take some time for games to take full advantage of APIs new features, but the timing varies. The length of time really depends on the game developers, since they’ll be the ones to optimize for DirectX 12. Given the initial benefits talked about in the press, one would think everyone would want to get there as soon as possible.”

We also asked about Mortenson’s favourite features of Windows 10 that hold the most untapped potential. “The true benefits of DX12 in gaming performance will be something to look forward to as more games, drivers, and hardware are optimized to take advantage of the technology; in turn, giving players a better experience and improved frame rates.

“If DX12 can take advantage of and optimize for multi-adapters (a combination of discrete and integrated graphics), even with different brands, many of today’s gamers would get a boost to framerates since many have a dedicated graphics card with the integrated graphics essentially sitting idle. Faster DRAM will help integrated graphics performance, so it’ll be interesting to see what develops here and if consumers/gamers can take advantage of this benefit.”

    We still have the more powerful system at 2.6TF when professionally unlocked,
    just we don’t need to use the full DX12 feature set yet and will keep playing the weaker system still the time is right.

      They are not answering my emails now!

  • I enjoy these articles. They are informative and the crying from the stupid delusional sony fanboys pretending dx12 has nothing to offer are just delicious to observe. Cry harder gentle children, and amuse me.

      “Cry harder gentle children, and amuse me”.

      Stranger danger!

      i don’t see anybody crying over this… i do see a delusional X1 fan that thinks DX12 is the holy grail (Xbox one 2second gpu unlocking)
      Best thing to do now is just wait and see what it will do for the X1

    • Not on Disqus. You should see the reaction to these articles on other gaming sites that either have their own articles or link to these.

      On N4G every time one of these iaposted, thia one included, the sony fanboys go apecrap and flood it with negative comments and cries to ban gamingbolt stories about DX12 from being posted because “phil spencer said it won’t do anything” and yadda yadda “clickbait”.

      Those guys are worse and greater in number than the xtrolls like the one above. I’m an xbox guy, but I’m fair and stick to the facts unlike some fanboys. Though I will admit I attack sony fanboys more than any others. That tendancy dates back to before Xbox existed though. Sony fanboys (not fans, fanboys) are by far the worst in gaming. The smellliest and messiest turds in the porta potty.

      i think Sony MS and especially Master Race PC fanboys are all the worst at the same level. But yeah as you are more of a Xbox guy i can understand you dislike Sony fanboys abit more. To me i laugh about all of them plus sometimes it’s funny to go in a discussion with them.

      But the more important news is that i really hope DX12 will do something great for the X1 not only to make mine gaming experience better but also for future tech to see what MS and other companies can make out of this.
      I am very curious this year for VR and DX12 possibilities. Gotta love tech!

    • It’s not because I’m an Xbox guy. My dislike of them dates back to when I was a Nintendo and PS guy. I started with NES, before there even was PS. I’ve seen how sony fanboys have been the worst of fanboys since the start. Attacking anyone they see as competition.

      Doesn’t matter what you have or what you prefer, you will be attacked by a sony fanboy if you dare speak honestly about PS and not pretend it is God’s gift to video games.

      The others can be bad of course, but sony fanboys are definitely worse and have greater saturation and presence in media. Especially these days.

  • Gamez Rule

    DirectX 12 brings better performance to games Async Shaders are materially important because shorter rendering times reduce graphics pipeline latency, and lower latency *equals greater performance* But is there a huge step forward in fidelity between DX12 and DX12? IMO not really. ( see video )
