DirectX 12, Xbox Experience, Windows 10 And More!
Just When You Thought Microsoft Was Out Of Ideas For Gamers
I've been reading up on DirectX 12 since mid-2014 and it appears that Microsoft is gearing up for a Q4 2015 release. DX11 was great and all, but DirectX 12 should have more of an impact on games as well as the hardware. The good news is that most gaming engines will support DirectX 12 API, which is great news so that many developers can use the new API. One of the issues with DirectX 11 is that it did not use the multi-core processors very well. There would be a "wait" or "idle" period between frames. This leads to other issues which can easily frustrate games. During gaming sessions you want lowest latency and highest frame rate as possible.
