A very interesting turn of events. Forza 5 1080p/60fps Demo was NOT running on an Xbox One. It was running a PC powered by Nvidia GTX Titan Blacks.
This comes directly from Nvidia Official :)
Well IGN said it looked exactly like the Xbox One version so i guess this is a complement?
LOL @ your denial!!! Developers need to cut the crap this generation and start showing console footage from the get-go instead of trying to fool people with suped-up PC footage. Can't wait until more console exclusive games are released so we can see what titles will actually look like. Edit: I think regardless of what side gamers are on,we can all agree this needs to start happening.
Right but even MS said themselves DURING the presentation that is was easy to port Forza 5 from Xbox One to PC only using 4 people... You guys need to troll harder, seriously! This was a PC tech demo from the start lol
@thereapersson You mean like Infamous Second Son that looks as good and in some cases better than the E3 build? Or Killzone that was upgraded from both the February PS4 unveiling and the E3 build to release? Yeah Forza 5 was downgraded (and Watch Dogs looks like it might have been) but don't say it's the norm when there's no proof of it.
DX12 seem to benefit PCs, not really Xbox One. Even CPU 50 percent boost was specifically for PC on the slide.
Lol. Its funny watching people desperately try and use something they haven't even attempted,to understand as ammunition againt ms in their trolling crusade. the whole,point of the tech demo,was,to,demonstrate the easy portability of console-level performance, by a small team with limited dev time, using dx12. but look, the blatant trolls get all the disagrees, and the people trying to explain it to them get all the disagrees. Welcome to n4g, where up is down, black is maroon, and idiots are the smartest men alive.
Well, MS has never been keen on showing Forza 5 on their console anyway.
lolCHILLbro, Yeah, it looks exactly like it. Yet it just doesn't perform like it, which is the whole point here.
I still don't get it. When Forza was presented at E3, was it running on a PC already? So why does this proves DX12 capability right now? Doesn't this mean that DX12 is already ready? So why release it in 2015? This is just to weird to make any sense.
NOPE! most demos run on a PC. means NOTHING! (Still wasting money on an overpriced Titan is see, hope the demo was running at 4K resolution at least)
"most demos run on a PC. means NOTHING!" True...in a way. The original Titanfall announcement was running on a PC and look how far below target that turned out for PCs so that meant nothing. @Uzumaki below, Yep. Its not just a river in Africa anymore.
have you ever thought about Nvidia giving MS a Free Titan to run the demo ?? Nvidia was working with for almost 4 years talking about DX12 so i bet the Titan belongs to them not the Dev team working on Forza5
I personally am a little disappointed in microsofts dx12 demonstration today. Not much info was given, and this silly forza thing. Admitingly I'm no computer expert but was hoping for so much more...
Everybody here is gonna be screwed if they ever change the name of that river...
Deal with it. "“….the new API with a tech demo of the Xbox One racing game Forza running on a PC powered by an NVIDIA GeForce Titan Black. In addition, our software team has provided a driver to game studios to facilitate further design feedback as well as actual game development.” Read more: http://wccftech.com/forza-5...
This was the intention. Turn10 worked on the port to run on directx 12 for pc, they state it themselves. Read the presentation quotes. This is flamebait, there is no deceiving going on. These Journalists need to research a little better.
All true, but it's still a pretty odd choice to showcase a game that was already 1080p60 on the console. "Look what directX 12 can do! It's forza on much more powerful hardware, looking pretty much the same as before!" <slow clap>
Well.. The point of the demo is showcasing dx12.. Which is also for PCs. Unless they represent it as Xbox footage.. There is no argument to be had here
if forza is not available on PC, then it can be seen as being represented as xbone footage.
I guess so.. I would assume people that follow this news knows better..
@above Title was changed, originally it was rumoring forza 5 on pc. Not denying this fact if the titan
It's not a bad thing porting from directx11 to 12 can take up to 4 months think of it as a good thing. And porting from x1 to pc pc to x1 is easier
Forza Motorsport 5 on the XBOX ONE already: Runs 1080p 60fps. Someone should tell the author Mr. Syed that. And, to view Digital Foundry for verification.
holy no way they would do this right now. no...way...
Most of Microsoft's games last E3 were also running on PC's as well so this isn't surprising. They openly tricked people into believing that the PC versions of the games they were demoing were indicative of what they would look like on the Xbox One which have obviously been proven false. If you look or Google search or Yahoo search it's not hard to find pictures of the demo kiosks with PC's in them and a few pictures of people opening then kiosks to reboot the system after a freeze or crash. Microsoft has been caught lying pretty much this whole time so this shouldn't surprise anyone. I personally think it's disingenuous to show a better version of your game than your machine can actually run some people would disagree to each their own. http://www.cinemablend.com/...
Specifically states will not see release. Go ahead and close this topic. http://i.imgur.com/rKFbiZQ....
Actually they've changed the topic to "Forza 5 DX12 TechDemo was running on a Titan Black Powered PC" Why the urge to close topic ?
Turn 10 stated during the presentation, they are console only devs.
Wow DX12 on PC so unexpected not. I'm sorry to say I'm not surprise at the most it's more or less DX12 really meant for PC not console that just going to get an tiny boost!
