Earlier this week, we reported to you that Slightly Mad Studios’ Ian Bell had made a statement to the effect that Microsoft’s DirectX 12 will lead to a performance gain of 30-40%. Since DirectX 12 is also coming to the Xbox One, and since this comment was posted in a thread discussing the performance of the Xbox, there were many who concluded that that was the kind of performance gain Xbox One owners could expect once DirectX 12 went live.

However, Bell has now clarified his comments, and confirmed that the 30-40% boost is only for the PC; the Xbox One can expect to see a performance gain closer to 7% (or maybe a little bit more). It’s still a performance net gain, but not the substantial one that many were expecting or hoping for.

Bell also confirmed that Slightly Mad Studios is hard at work on a DirectX 12 patch for Project CARS, that it hopes to ship later this year.

Stay tuned for more coverage.
