Ever since the Windows 10 event, there is a lot of expectations regarding DirectX 12 and how it can possibly change the games development scene on Xbox One and PC.
Guess that's enough confirmation right there on DX12
This is the same guy that last year said that DX12 will double the performance of X1. http://xboxonedaily.com/201... However last week Phil Spencer said that the maximum gain from DX12 could be 50% in the case of PC gaining. This means that X1 will gain much less than 50%. So for me, Wardell just desperately seeks attention. Could someone say to me when DX12 will be released such as to know when this DX12 drama/ hype/ PR will be over?
''Could someone say to me when DX12 will be released such as to know when this DX12 drama/ hype/ PR will be over?'' This won't be over anytime soon, Micro needs to keep the PR BS like a broken record through out the year, they'll try and stay relevant somehow since they don't have that many games to release until the holidays. So be prepare to hear a lot of PR BS about dx12sszz and dah Holololensszz;)
Aintgottime - thank god you only have one bubble and are therefore limitied on spouting your bs to once per thread..
Damn, Brad Wardell is Heman76's go-to guy for the DX12 hope and dreams. If he finds out that Wardell knows something about PS4's API that will make its fans "rejoice" as he put it, then he'll probably put it down to the dude "trolling" us, just like he believes Phil Spencer was only trolling us by telling us that DX12 would not have a massive impact on the Xbox One, rather than being realistic. I wonder what on Earth he could possibly know about Sony's internal API, but interesting outlook nonetheless. ------ @ Moldiver (in response to marlinfan) Case in point? That couldn't be further from the truth. I read the entire tweet, so don't go all condescending on my ass. I've never ever "poo-pooed" DX12's ability to improve the Xbone's development pipeline. I've never said DX12 will not help the Xbone improve. I've been realistic and said it won't help as much as most hardcore fans are suggesting, and it looks like I'm right. My comment was in response to people like Heman76 who believe that DX12 will (in his own words) "stomp" the PS4. If I was "poo pooing DX12" you would've been able to draw that from my comment.
https://twitter.com/dragino... "But ps4 fans will have something exciting to rejoice about soon too." Followed by... "Beware of poo pooing dx12/mantle architecture lest you eat crow." In the same tweet implies, that A)sony have APi improvements in the works ( no brainer) And B) not to discredit the benefits of DX12, unless you like the taste of eating your own words.So just as xb1 fans can "rejoice" at the improvements DX12 and cloud compute will bring, PS4 owners can also "rejoice" that PS4 development will not be slowing down either.
I won't believe what the man is saying until i see it.
I'm interested in seeing how the dx12 down players take this news. On one hand they'll say he's an idiot for suggesting they'll eat crow eventually about dx12. Then on the other they'll say he's spot on about ps4 having something surprising coming soon. Either way it's good to hear both consoles should have some nice improvements/surprises coming this year

Case in point...digital raptor's comment, above. people like that, they only digest the part of the tweet they want to hear, then stick their fingers in their ears singing "lalala" as far the rest of the tweet and actual context goes.

DX12 more beneficial to PC gamers ....PS4 will have good news soon ...and X1 continues to improve! Just in case the 'ACTUAL' news gets clouded by pointless fanboy nonsense ;)
Source are cool , they keep the industry on it toes. In the end am going to side with the guy that has people overseeing all aspects of his division.
open gl update or new sdk that uses gpgpu more effiecently?
Sony is dead in water. It's a repeat of apple vs google. How apple laid the ground work but got comfortable and showed no innovation over the years and how google seemd to come out of know where and steal marketshare. While apple still sells phones by the boat loads as will sony will do with the ps4 (mainly overseas) it's become more apparent which console is preferred. Unlike apple sony cant afford to live off hardware sales. By the way the ps3 came in last last generation,world wide,yes world wide. Destoryed in america nearly 3:1. The 360 outsells the freaking wii in america,amazing,xbox has come in and has the money to not go any where even if there product didnt sell but as it stands its selling perfectly fine,expect a 15-17 million sales announcement at e3. The ps4 won 9 out of 12 months in the u.s but yet there only ahead by 400,000+ consoles? there software sales are behind xbox one and xbox 360,sony is dying slow,but hey i hope they make it so they can release a non physical ps5 lol they dont even know if they want to make a ps5 physical and based on psn this who you guys put your gaming hands in? gtfoooo lol
Aaah..., that's kind of cute..^^, you're funny guy, I'll give you that..
@shadyiswin Last time I checked, N. America is not the only market on this planet. The PS4 already had life time sales at 18.5 mil at the the beginning of January. The X1 became competitive over the holidays in the USA with the $349 Assassins Creed bundle and out sold the PS4 quite handily in Nov and Dec. However, the PS4 TLOUR bundle seems to be doing very well this month and I wouldn't be surprised to see the PS4 take the Jan. NPD. That said, it's apparent that at this moment in time, it is illogical to imply that the X1 is the preferred console.
lol this @shady.... living the fanboy life style
Hilarious! I thought you X1 fans didnt care about sales? Now you do? It's hard to keep up. Oh and 1 more thing, the only source that tracks worldwide sales says PS3 sold more by the end of last generation, but you sad fanboys will just ignore it...
Your a complete tool who should be banned from the internet
Adderal is bad, mmmkay
Lmao! You must be blind and just plain dumb.Last Gen Wii outsold both PS3 & XB360.PS3 came out a year later than XB360 at a very high price,still it managed catch up to XB360. Now with PS4 is a whole different story, PS4 has been dominating since launch.Just because X1 surpassed PS4 in 1 market don' mean globally.Yes blind fan boy there's life outside America.PS2 is the fastest and most successful console of all time,and PS4 is already selling faster than PS2.
Is PS4 using Mantle at all?
PS4 uses a modified version of OpenGL, which is what many AMD chips are based off of. PS4 doesn't really need to use mantle, it has it's own version which does something similar to what mantle offers, just with specific coding to the hardware.
Incoming armchair devs with a 1000 different expert opinions about how DX12 will do/not do anything for gaming,a 1000 opinions all different from one another smh
PS4 owners already have something to rejoice about....It is called exclusive games....And there are a lot coming this year...But shhh...we can't talk about that here on N4Xbox...
Because the other platforms don't have fantastic exclusives themselves. And N4Xbox? Really? We're going to play pretend now? We've only just recently gotten to the point where a large amount of articles posted aren't written and put up here in order to sling more mud at the system.
Ive learned these people on this site downplay everything xbox lol. These fanboys and their childish console war
It's pretty funny, all the same people that whine and throw a fit about any negative ps4 news constantly trash and downplay xbox. All you need is look at the large amount of downvotes on anything even slightly positive about xbox. This site has been a Sony and PC fanboy mained community for a long while. N4G itself is user driven so it's bot bias, but the amount of pc and sony fanboys can make it appear that way with how they overreact to negative ps4 stuff and trash xbox in the next story. Keep the sony related news on top as much as they can.
you guys couldnt have handled being a sony fan here at n4g during the first 2-3years of last gen..
Its simple, sony can overclok the cpu and gpu and have gains of 10 to 20 por cent in power.
Hehehe^^ It's not as simple as that.
Lol, of course the ICE Team will be able to double the GPU performance. Lol. Just kidding.
Every one of these articles.. Same exact arguments over and over.. Can everyone just stfu
Hope xbox one can at least output 900p with dx 12 but I am not holding my breadth.
You are joking right,XBO can already hit 1080p and that's with DX11,so just imagine what DX12 is going to do.
even with DX12 it's only going to do 1080p, I doubt either console will be able to do graphically intense games at 4K... they don't have the raw power for it.
ummm min that xbox does now is 900p and this is due to XB1 not having the proper API it was built for which is dx12 THIS IS OBVIOUS BY NOW SMH
It's very entertaining reading the posts from the PS4 armchair developers who knows every part of DX12 and XBO,and believe (they told themselves) that DX12 will not make a difference on XBO..lol These same individuals most be the guys who designed the XBO and set up all the NDA's as well. Just do us all a favour and stick to PS4 news and technology and stop talking about stuff you have no knowledge about.
Tech blogs related to either X1 or PS4's "power" always get so much attention and "interaction" within any community, especially IGN, freaking wars start at the drop of a hat. I feel this is no different than people bickering over the latest Hollywood Drama from TMZ and theory crafting what their favorite stars are going to do next. Stahp. Plz.
Regardless of which system does what better, I just hope that we keep seeing improvements that deliver better games. I don't want much. Just give me the best games possible.
PC With GTX 970 Easily Destroy ps4&XB1 APU even when they have GPGPU !!!
