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?

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;)

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.

"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.

All you're doing is perpetuating the problem....so sad ;/

Meanwhile ...

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 ;)
