We have early information about some of the details regarding DirectX 12, and what follows will surprise you.
A source with knowledge of the matter gave us some early information about an “unspoken API,” which we strongly infer is DirectX 12.
We first heard of DirectX 12 in 2013, and DirectX 12 appears to finally be around the corner. It’s expected to launch in tandem with the upcoming Windows 10 operating system.
The new API will work much differently from older APIs, and it’s common knowledge by now that it will be “closer to the hardware” than older APIs, similar to AMD’s Mantle. This will bring massive improvements in framerates and latency, but that’s not all that DirectX 12 has up its sleeve.
