No that is false, Xb1 fans haven't really mentioned DX12 that much. You can search all my comments related to DX12, and you won't find one comment saying it will double XB1 performance. I did say it will be nice to have a 50% more efficient CPU, which is still unverified. And I got that information from the slides of that GDC conference earlier this year.

It's pretty funny this statement will mean more to ps4 fans than Xb1 fans. Don't believe look at the main ones commenting saying this will shut xbots up. lol Matter of fact there are only about 5 or 6 true XB1 fans on this site, so really where are all these xbots commenting talking about the cloud and dx12.

@LeBruset that was a poor attempt to call me out, keep searching. In you 2 quotes where do I mention how well DX12 will help. i just found it odd an opposing developer cared so much. As for your deal, we need to sweeten the pot a bit, if you can get a couple more of your ps4 buddies like Kingthrash, New Monday, Lukas, and Heavy to join in it's a DEAL. I'm Kind of a big deal on these gaming blogs, TRUEFAN is a worldwide name now, whether you like me or hate me.

@LeBruset it's starting to look sad that you are still trying. Keep on searching though, I'm sure I slipped up once. I basically control you, if I can get under your skin that much. It really shouldn't mean that much to you, video games are just toys.

@LeBruset stop proving my point, look at all the research you are doing. PS I never said you shouldn't have fun commenting on your hobby, which is what I do. You are clearly irritated. I get personal messages all the time, but I think it's funny people get so upset. Nothing said on this site could make me go out of my way to privately message someone lol. Not saying you have messaged me, but you keep researching trying to find some ammo. Let it go man.

Ready the actual tweet.

Person who asked. This might be random but will dx12 be a game changer for xbox one????? And how? why ?

Phil@ It will help developers on XBOX One. It's not going to be a massive change but will unlock more capability for devs

Phil confirms it is for x box something Sony fans deny on N4G all the time.

Hes wording massive. It still going to be good for xb1.

Directx12 unlock more capability for devs.

So the API is going to help out the xb1.

Eonjay  +   126d ago | Well said
To be honest, Microsoft has been very honest from the beginning. You have to listen to what they say and block out others. One of the system architects at Microsoft explained it a long time ago and people wouldn't listen. DX12 brings some of the advantages from consoles to PC. It also has an advantage of making cross platform development ubiquitous across Xbox One and PC. The major benefit is its ability to get better results from modern multicore CPUs much in a way that the Xbox is doing now.

People were claiming miracles would occur but that is not what they said. They even gave a demo showing how DX12 was more efficient than DX11 with CPU time.

I seriously fail to see how Microsoft misled anyone.

Woah! Am i suddenly in a different universe? I can't believe what im reading here from some people....

You guys were saying for months how much of a game changer DX12 was for the X1, how you can have the audacity to sit there and act all humble and move the goalposts in an attempt to redirect any shame from themselves is pitiful. You guys acted like DX12 was the absolutely saving grace for the X1, and that the power increase would be HUGE.

I hate to say i told you so, but i did tell you so. I said again and again that DX12 wouldn't have as much impact as people were hoping for, that it was mainly for the benefit of PC's, and that pinning all your hopes onto it was just setting up yourselves for disappointment. And any time someone chose to doubt DX12, or question it in *any* way, like i did, we got labelled as trolls and downplayers.

@KNWS

"Phil confirms it is for x box something Sony fans deny on N4G all the time. "

Hahaha....what? Stop moving the goalposts, no one said that. I heard many people say that it would benefit PC much more than the X1, never did i see someone say DX12 wasn't for Xbox, everyone and their dog knows that the 'X' in 'Xbox' is because of Direct X. Stop making things up, because you are one of the guys who thought DX12 would be a game changer, don't make me show people the PM's i have from you about DX12.

"It's not going to be a massive change"

That part of the quote goes directly against what ive been hearing from Xbox fanboys for the past few months. Maybe this will be a lesson learned about counting your chickens (and bragging about them) before they have hatched? Probably not.....

No, check my posts, like most X1 fans I've always said DX12 is just another tool/asset, plus many more to come that will improve X1 over the years which is typical of how ALL consoles/software works, all the secret sauce talk is from that mister guy and ps fanboys who hope X1 doesnt constantly improve. lol, which is so silly, I mean micro is a software giant so you would expect them to QUICKLY build better tools, SDK'S to improve their platform.

-Tell 'em Phil:

"It will help developers on Xbox One. It's NOT going to be a massive change BUT will unlock more capability for devs."

You are right they did not, but every developer and wanna-be-developer said other wise. +b. That is the reason why the DX12 message is scrambled. Its good that MS has said something confirming what some of us already knew but it still does not change the fact that some still think there is some secret sauce. So I guess the next thing we will here for a while until confirmation is that the cloud will make a difference once Crackdown 3 is shown using the tech.

"Matter of fact there are only about 5 or 6 true XB1 fans on this site, so really where are all these xbots commenting talking about the cloud and dx12."

And just what is your extreme standard for judging someone a true XB1 fan? Is it making extreme and hyperbolic statements like you engage in?

You engage in illogical hyperbole routinely and refuse to be accountable for it. That's pretty disingenuous to challenge people to find in your comment history where you said that DX12 will double XB1 performance. xHeavYx didn't imply, directly or indirectly, that anyone did. What was being called out was the illogical hyping of DX12, and hyping is something you and others are quite guilty of. Kind of like when you said XB1 won't lose to PS4 more than 2/7 months from June on. So speaking of challenges and being accountable for outlandish statements, I'm still awaiting your response.

Despite being proven wrong (again), you continue to move those goalposts, and try to pin the blame for the false hope of DX12's impact on playstation fans? Wow...

Xbox has been steadily closing the gap between the systems when you look at current multiplatforms compared to launch ones. Even just a little performance boost from DX12 is going to close that gap completely or put X1 ahead.

It truly was the sony fanboys making it a bigger deal than it was. No one said DX12 would make the x1 more powerful. Xbox fans and fanboys said it would make development easier and improve design.

Sony fanboys kept going on and on about how dx12 wouldnt do anything while misquoting fans about how dx12 was a saving grace. There is no doubt Xbox One was built with DX12 in mind and I am positive developers will be happy once they get their hands on it for making xbox games.

I would pretend to be amazed at your comment, but I talked to a couple of XB1 owners over the weekend that actually believed the XB1 is already ahead of the PS4, even in sales.

@Truefan

Remember when Naughty Dog tried to warn about hyping DX12 for XB1 to unrealistic levels and you responded with:

"ND must be threatened to issue this statement, especially saying pure marketing hyperbole. He sounds like all of you, this must be pre June 2nd damage control. Also sony execs sure worry alot about what MSFT is doing, saying DX12 will do nothing and planning a reactionary E3.

The call out demonstrated exactly what it was meant to: that you are immune to reason and prone to illogical statements. Not only could you not accept what Naughty Dog was saying about DX12, but you went so far as to insist that they were afraid. Yet, do you take any accountability for being proven wrong, again? Nope.

As for that deal, let's inject some reality. You have one, well deserved, bubble. I have five. Going by that, I already have more to lose than you. Now you want to involve others as well,including Lukas with his 10 bubbles? That's up to them whether they want to get in on that action, if they want to demand some of your ilk get in on it too, or whatever. The only thing in our control is you and I accepting the deal. So man up and stop trying to hide behind ridiculous conditions that are beyond my lone ability to consent to. Have some accountability for what you said, since you were so sure of it.

Btw, I hope Phil has now made clear to you the "true power of DX12."

"I hope June 2nd they reveal the true power of DX12 and show what the XB1 can do. I just refuse to believe MSFT spent all that money on a customized GRU for nothing."

http://n4g.com/comments/red...

"Say what you want, but the ps4 is already getting maxed out. It has essentially peaked and if you noticed their first party games are running 30fps, infamous, drive club, and the order. XB1 had been more frame rate focused and is expected to get better with DX12. XB1 already has a faster CPU, and a 50% utilization reduction could be huge. For all that 50% more powerful ultra computer, not one game has even looked 5% better.

"For XB1 There Is just so much potential with titled resources using the esRAM and cloud computing. I'll take the jokes in the now, but by time Halo comes out you will see the complete package and see which was built for the future. Maybe even Remedy will be the first compete package by year end.

"PS boyd said near future, E3 perhaps, I have a feeling some "cloud" "DX12" presentations are in order for the biggest gaming stage. MSFT leadership knows what's at stake, they know the skepticism, they are just putting it on people's radar."

I've been saying the same thing for weeks. Consoles already have that "to the metal" aspect that DX12 is trying to bring to PC.

So glad someone finally cleared it up. Nothing like having a good chuckle at all the people that argued self imagined misconceptions about how this was going to work and then being shot down by their own favored company.

I just hope they take advantage of DX12 and start porting some games over to PC, even if it's a year after the console release. My most anticipated game is a new Fable, but not the Fable Legends spin-off, I want a story-oriented one like before and I want it to really have passion put into it.

Taking risk can usually includes financial risk. Most indies can not afford to showcase the full ambition of their intended design.

What Phil has done hear is quail the expectations of some fans who may have expected DX12 to blow PS4 away performance wise. But he still leaves open that fact that improvements are to be expected.

@Eonjay: good sensible commenting. So many people here go out of their way to tray an insult or degrade other because of their choice of a GAMING console. So what if a few X1 fans had high hopes for DX12. They are not the developer and are getting info enforces those excitements.

Boy will be boys though and of course this is going to be used by many to say X1 is trash and will remain trash. But it is not trash and is already performing even better in upcoming games.

Big changes are not massive changes. They've already demoed big changes that dx12 brings . Massive would be achieving graphic level of Blizzard's CGIs which is ridiculous to even think of. 30% boost? Sure. They've already showed 50% boost in cpu load on PC thanks to dx12 and that's what we should expect. That's still pretty big, especially for a console like XBOX ONE where you can snap browser/videos/skype calls and whatever else in the bg. That's CPU heavy.

The boost comes from better allocation of the memory bus/controller and better overall use of processing threads within the APU itself. DX12 gives developers API's to do such abilities as routine things, instead of having to make up workarounds to get it to work.

I explained it in detail once a while back(can't find the comment now) and got a lot of disagrees, even though I was saying it would improve things some. Probably because I said there's no way those things would add up to doubling X1's processing power...which was the current assumption at the time.

Otherwise, this was good of Phil to clear the air about. Seen way too many assumptions on this subject, and way too much hyperbole while I was at it. It's never a good thing to set the customers expectations to an unachievable level, which was done more by a few very passionate Xbox fans.

Not really...EVERYONE has been saying this same thing. The only people saying otherwise is really just PS fanboys trying to build a strawman argument...and a few Xbox Fanboys...other than that everyone else was being much more realistic. Please stop making up arguments to try and make others look stupid for things they haven't said.

Everytime DX12 comes up we are reminded that X1 already has a low level API...we all know this, and the advantage will be more about tools that it can give devs...everyone with half a brain has been saying this as soon as it was revealed.

Every little bit helps, I just hope that is makes using the ESRAM much easier for Devs to take advantage of, that's what I've more so been concerned with the whole time. Either way, it's already looking like with the June SDK, there is less need for a "massive" boost in performance.

@skydragoon To be fair..the "delusional arguments" have always been from the PS4 side of the camp on this issue. I keep hearing Sony fans say that Xbots are saying this will change the world, but I typically only see Xbox Fans saying that it will help, but it's more about giving tools.

Not like everyone with common sense didn't see this coming miles away. Just like every other delusional dream that has been put to rest about the Xbox One.

I have said this for ages, I won't act like Microsoft hasn't mislead people in the past but a huge majority of this misinformation is completely due to most their delusional fanbase who can't accept for the life of them what their console actually is.

Now I can add yet another dream to my list of those crushed. /s

Really not that rewarding though in all honesty, most the time I seriously feel bad for how deluded some of these people here on N4G are. I won't specifically single out Xbox fans only because it happens from ever side of the fence.

I just honestly question how some of these people even make it through life, I guess it's too easy these days to stay alive. No more natural selection to weed out the morons.

Had to edit this and add what I think is a important ending note. Although I have had my trouble with Phil in the past, I gained a huge amount of respect for him right now, just for being completely honest about this.

If this continues, who knows just maybe I might actually be a bit more trusting of the Xbox brand. My lack of trust in Microsoft in general has always been the problem, I don't dislike their games, I never disliked their consoles either, I was heavy into the 360 but that is when they lost every bit of trust I had in them.

So this type of honesty is very refreshing.

people really need to have more perspective, Yes DX12 will improve X1 - by how much?
10-15%?

So if we take the 10% unlocked from the removal of kinect, and add the 10-15% of the DX12 update it should hopefully get it closer to the PS4...
How much closer to the PS4?
Only real results will tell, from all my technical reading it will significantly close the gap, but I reckon the PS4 will still have a slight performance edge.

Any progress with either console is good progress, I understand many people will want to defend their console and really shovel it to X1 adopters, but both consoles have very similar parts and different architectures.

@Lukas_Japonicus,

It's still going to make a difference. Not "a massive difference".

M$ doesn't need much, as they have "The Only 1080p 60fps" "Next Gen Console Game On The Market" in Forza Motorsport 5, Period!

Forza Motorsport 5 is "ONLY" on a next generation console. You can't find Forza Motorsport 5 on the PS3, 360, or Wii.

Maybe SONY should get something like "Direct P4-13" to give the PS4 a small boost in performance of about 5-15% (not a "massive boost") to help Drive Club reach 1080p 60fps like Forza Motorsport 5.
OR
Help Drive Club (exclusive for PS4) add weather effects at launch instead of a post launch patch...especially after a year delay! You know, like Forza Horizon 2 has right now, delivering an open world with weather at launch.

Also, "Direct P4-13" may help Drive Club get rid of those invisible walls we had with the Atari 2600. Forza Horizon 2 doesn't have invisible walls & that's without Direct X 12.

"You are right Xbots can stop talking about massive change but the console will benefit from it regardless still. Can't deny that."

The primary party whom can't deny the gains of DX12 are developers. It's them who are to benefit the most. DX12 makes their jobs a lot easier in many situations. Xbox gamers aren't going to play a game developed with DX12 and think to themselves, WOW look at the fruits of DX12.

So, to a certain extent (Again, unless you are a developer) the benefits are invisible to Xbox gamers!

If you actually look at ANY article on DX12 the past few months, the vast majority of the comments are from it's detractors, not it's supporters,save for a few goofy Xbox fanatics. Where are all of these legions of people blowing Xbox One improvements out of proportion? Because I mostly see the polar opposite.
rainslacker  +   126d ago
That's the thing though. MS itself hasn't been touting DX12 as a major game-changer for the X1. It's mostly been a cult group of their fans doing so.

MS has released some rather detailed information on what it does different, and kept some back as well. That information isn't hard to understand for those that work with this kind of stuff.

However, this cult group has been going around outright saying people that have explained what changes would be made, and how it would improve things, but not cause a "significant" increase are just wrong. They then add in that it will greatly improve the hardware's efficiency to cause the hardware to be able to operate anywhere from 50-200% better than it already is. That's just not how programming works. Hardware is set, and the current DX would have to be highly inefficient(which it isn't) to see that much of an improvement.

Anyhow, these huge assumptions being touted about the increase in power, presumably to say it will be better than the PS4, are only going to cause people's expectations to be elevated to the point that there is no way any developer could achieve what people expect.

The realistic fact of the matter is is that as the efficiency of API's increases on any given hardware, the noticeable improvements decrease. It's a matter of diminishing returns.

Think of it this way. Even with Naughty Dog's talent, no one on here can say that TLOU looks 50-200% better than the first Uncharted. Maybe 10% from UC1 to UC2, 5% from UC2 to UC3, another 2% from UC3 to TLOU.(numbers used as an example, not making any value judgement). It's reasonable to assume that between the development of UC1 and TLOU, that Sony improved their API's as much as DX12 improves over DX11.

There is absolutely no way to make a processor of any kind do more than it's meant to do, no matter how good the API's are, or even if you write the code in assembly bypassing them. The code just becomes more efficient, which causes a better game, perhaps a better frame rate or resolution, etc. But never will that processor be able to outperform a more powerful processor with equally efficient API's.
Kavorklestein  +   126d ago
Okay so your last paragraph you said the code gets better allowing "perhaps a better frame rate or resolution" isn't that the key to catching up to the PS4? Notice I said catching up, not outperform. I never expected the xb1 to outperform the PS4
#11.2.1 (Edited 126d ago ) | Agree(0) | Disagree(3) | Report
rainslacker  +   126d ago
From a programming standpoint, maybe, maybe not. One thing about programming, when doing something, the answer on how to do that is always, "It depends".

But lets break it down to see if that is the key to catching up, as I assume you actually meant performance parity when you say this.

Let's look at one title between both systems being equal, where performance/content(on screen visuals) parity is the case. By performance we'll say 1080p/60fps.

In the case of parity, then to the user, yes, this would be key. But on a software and hardware level, the cold hard truth is that the PS4 will simply perform the operations faster(possibly not better API wise...but I digress). Unless the API's for Sony are simply terrible and cause A LOT of overhead, then the processor will always outperform. However, Sony's PS API's have been applauded for quite some time now, and they have a really solid tool-set.

Now, lets say that performance parity only applies to 1080p/60fps, and that what is actually displayed at that resolution and frame rate has no parity.

The PS4 is simply able to handle more on the screen at any given resolution/FR, due to it being more powerful. 50% more powerful on paper, meaning that it can perform 50% more operations per clock cycle, again on paper. In the PS4's case, the GPU is simply able to handle more on screen at that resolution on a hardware level. More can be better textures, better lighting, better particle effects, etc.

Even nowadays in the age of GPU compute, Physics could even be much better on one system than the other, although that would be unlikely as it's a actual game play factor...however, the PS4 would not have to give up as much on screen to process those physics. Those compute units make a difference if a dev decides to use them.

Anyhow, increasing processor efficiency, increasing bandwidth, increasing threads, unlocking cores, etc does improve the number of processes that a GPU/CPU can physically do per cycle. It may affect how quickly they can perform them, or how much resources are needed to process them. But a 10% increase in processing power does not necessarily translate to 10% increased number of actual processes that happen per cycle. It's not a 1:1 ratio. There are just too many factor's that go into it, and even more, on a programming level, more often than not you can't just brute force code through and expect it to work for a game scenario. There's a lot of intricacies and dependencies to make something happen, so it becomes a matter of where is the weakest link?

The value of new more efficient API's is that they remove overhead, but in a console environment, that overhead is already extremely low in many cases. However, reducing processing overhead by 50%, does not translate into a 50% increase in processing power, as the basics of what is being done still has to be done at some coding level. Even writing directly in machine code(which no one does) would not see a vast improvement over assembly which is close to the metal programming which bypasses almost all overhead.

In the end, it really depends on what the developer decides to do with it. Bungie decided for frame rate parity among PS4 and X1 for Destiny. From what I've seen of the game, there's no reason why it couldn't be a higher frame rate on the PS4, or why the visuals couldn't be better on the PS4 at that resolution/FR. There will probably be some developer(if there isn't already) that decides to just do the best product they can on both systems, and not worry about performance parity.

People should just play their games, and if they have the choice between the two, look to the one that they think delivers what they want for whatever reason.

Kavorklestein  +   125d ago
Okay. So I agree that everything is and always has been dependent on the situation/what the devs decide/what they can manage to squeeze out of the hardware.
I also agree that having the best graphics or most raw power isn't really important in the long run, so long as devs make PLAYABLE and fun games.
Which, this gen, they are striving for more than ever, especially when we compare it to last gen when certain games were piss poor on either system for various reasons.

I Am simply saying, that it really doesn't matter in the long run, and I guess I should have been a bit more specific and say I think the Xbox one may catch up to where the PS4 is NOW, although the PS4 will likely have it's own improvements down the road.

This is a given in the gaming world like GTA V for example being so massive and involved on a last gen system is impressive, and would have never been dreamed of being possible at the beginning of the generation.

I hope you didn't take my comment as attacking you, I was just trying to say it's perfectly reasonable to think the two platforms will be getting closer to each other graphically as we go along, but that it is not a static situation for either console, and both have potential to "Get better as they go" especially as you have said, as devs gett better at using the hardware, and coding their engines on both platforms.
