Oh god, what have I done. I hope product planners and marketers don't see this post...they would drop on such an idea like vultures on rotten meat. tongue.gif

I don't think they need your help. Remember "HD-ready", "HD" and "Full-HD"?
Yeah...

Exactly this. Keep reading about features new APIs new Operating Systems new tech just to find out in the year 2014 majority of PC games are still DX9 32bit.

You do realize that the Xbox One is running a customized GCN1.1 I believe? That's the latest architecture from AMD. At the very least it's GCN1.0 and definitely customized to what we have in GCN based cards. At least with DX12 the main benefit looks to be better multi-core usage much like Mantle which I believe should work on any GPU.

This. I don't complain about it simply because I don't give a crap about it as a feature or lack thereof, I just buy new GPUs for performance and make use of new DX features when they're available. If they're not it's no skin off my back.

..*YAWN* frown.gif Wake me next year when we are closer to even needing to care about whether it's worth it or not. Still, most likely leaning towards not worth it until mid-2016. At least my wallet gets a good rest from excessive upgrades for every new feature.

Does the DX API really matter anymore?
post #57 of 152
Not surprising. A new DX has almost always required a new-gen gpu. DX12 will be no different.

Doesn't really matter much since we wont see games with it until like next year.

New API,new OS, new hardware. Makes perfect sense and I'd actually be happy If it's the case, because they have the chance to actually build something good from the ground up.

No surprise here, remember that this DX, will be in the XB1, and I don't thing those "full features" can be suported in that thing, and we, PC gamers, going to recive ported games without those "full features" anyway.
