Only way to do DX12 correctly is to do it only for DX12 hardware. Going back to DX11 as a renderer would require the benchmark to sacrifice all of the benchmark features to run internal code that benefits a DX11 system. It's why BF series needs to abandon DX11 support entirely as it is hurting the performance of the game.

based on DX11 = old

last year when Fury X dropped amd boys were all for benchmarking 2012 titles, now a 2015/16 dx11 game is old

the "future" that is X years away

DX11 is here and now and is far more prevalent than DX12 is wink.gif .. non Win10 users cant even run DX12

old games = present and upcoming games smile.gif


buy GCN = play AotS and Hitman wink.gif

buy Nvidia = play everything else redface.gif

Get the option to pay half as much if you only need half the performance, or double up on GPUs to get pretty similar costs and performance levels to Nvidia cards. Enjoy superior VR if you are into that.

buy Nvidia = Play everything that has been released to this point except for Hitman and AotS. Maybe play future titles if devs are lazy enough to not implement DX12/Vulkan, up until the next set of cards are released and driver support suddenly falls off a cliff. Hope that one size fits all fits all includes you. Pray that VR actually takes 20 years to become viable

Fixed that for you. thumb.gif


Don't get me wrong. I'm all for buying hardware for now and the immediate future. I correctly laughed at people who bought weak AMD cpus with lots of extra cores 10 years ago hoping that games would somehow make use of those extra cores "soon". By the time games went multi-thread, no number of cores could make up for just how outdated those already weak to begin with cores were.

That said, Polaris just has so many advantages over Pascal with no real disadvantage unless you are restricted to a single card, or are just blindly Nvidia loyal. "Them's the breaks".

The irony is this feature would be less of a news piece were it ever used to any real potentional in non-synthetic application. The gains aren't there, and the technique is cantankerous to implement. Those are the facts.
