    The Windows 10 update will fully transition over to Directx12 when it comes out.

    I feel like the mods should be doing their job and removing posts like this for the OP's lack of informaty(informity?). And personally sending them an email, or at least locking the thread and responding to them giving them the information or directing them to it that debunks their naive post.

    The Xbox One OS is already built off of a DirectX 12 variant. The new UI is supposed to complete the transition.

    I could of sworn earlier they said they were going to do this? they most likely will either make you pay for it, or only use it in a new console they make cause thats the only way they will make money cause thats what you need to live in this world.... even when your already rich as ***

    I'm not sure, but hasn't the Xbox always used DirectX or been able to in one way or another? I thought the "X" in the name Xbox was there because in the early stages of the original console it was considered the DirectXbox?

  • z Fluxyyy x commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Xbox one was designed for direct x 12 hence the cheaper ram etc, windows 10 it will improve the console but not as much as it will the pc, some games are apparently programme on xbox for dx12 I don't know if its true not but wouldn't surprise me

  • Danny Buttermen commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I hope this helps even out the parity differences...

    *** we as Xbox Gamers bought the most expensive console day one and its weaker than its competition... doesnt even make sense!

  • Liakhim Xbox commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    The Xbox One will have DirectX 12. In fact, since the Xbox One launch it has part of it. (DirectX 11.2)

  • XRaptor29 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    DX12 will only have a 20% difference on Xbox One and the biggest benefit is it can use multiple cores and not just one on one. Plus DX12 is built into Windows 10 so just upgrading to Windows 10 will bring DX12.

    Don't mean to be stupid but do you reckon Microsoft would be stupid enough to release DirectX 12 on Xbox one if it was not going to do any think. You're just the kind of people that dislike to believe that It is not going to do anything. So if I was you Would keep your opinions close yourself. Because if it decides to do something then you're going to look quite stupid.

    It already is and Phil Spencer already said that it wouldn't aid the Xbox ones performance. It will only really affect PC performance, because the games are already optimized for the console when they are made.

  • Hakso commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    The benefits of DirectX 12 can mainly affect PC, not Xbox. It allows developers to get closer to the metal than DirectX 10-11, which take code to higher level to compensate wildly different hardware configurations. In essence, DX10-11 make sure the game can run on many PCs but not in a very optimized manner. Consoles like Xbox One have been close to the metal since the dawn of man. Developers can optimize their games to use every bit of power the hardware can muster. Thus, many of the DX12 features are already part of the Xbox One driver and the full launch of DX12 later this year isn't expected to make major improvements to Xbox One's game performance.

    Has anyone heard about a time frame when Directx 12 is coming to the Xbox One? Thank you in advance..

  • sumothong01 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Not sure what you want? DX12 is going to be released on the xbox one. Developers already using it.

  • Metalarcane commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yes it is going to be on xBox One. Not sure about 360. But yes it will allow better frame rate, and better draw distance on current gen video cards. It should also allow games to easily reach the 1080p 60fps apparent standard.

    It spreads the processing load across all cores of the GPU evenly instead of pegging one cores resources at a time and spilling over into the next available core once the first core has reached its limit.

    I dont know the exact GPU chipset being used but I heard that it was AMD based so that means Radeon GPU. I dont know if the Xbox or PS4 will be able to take advantage of the new Nvidia software tweaks and scaling.
