Give me performance improvements over res upgrades for a game like this any day

gameseveryday1539d ago

Ideal would be 60fps but I guess that is not happening.

"Dev Looking Into DX12 Support" but does MS really supporting DX 12? 2 years have past and no significant DX 12 achievement.

Games take time and we will eventually see what's been going on. Instead of trying to inject doubt why don't you wait like the rest of are patiently doing!

ThePope1539d ago


DX12 has only been out for a few months.

GameNameFame1539d ago

Except that DX12 will not give any significant performance or resolution boost for Xbox One.

As MS engineers calls it, DX12 is giving what console already have to PC.

@Game4Next Dx12 on Xbox just launched a couple of months ago. Facts , you don't use them.

Look at the little fanBOY's agreeing and he's absolutely 100% wrong, of that, there can be no doubt. Don't bother to fact check or anything , stay ignorant.

You can look up what I'm saying, you can't look up the fantasy you pulled from your backside.

Its crazy the amount of people who think going from 900p to 1080p is a significant improvement.

That's a very small improvement compared to the other things that would actually make a significant improvement.

The inclusion of DX12 will make the performance profiling a little more stable and in some areas can give massive boost. However, the overall performance isn't going to be mind blowing.

For CPU related tasks, DX12 will be a boon for the CPU scheduler, and this is something that isn't available on Xbox One now. You can access it and tune it yourself right now though.

Fable Legends is DX12, and so is Just Cause 3, but I don't think there is a game that is completely built with DX12 in mind yet (even Fable Legends). It takes about 1-2 cycles to really see the improvements.

What a silly comment. You had a point, he was slightly wrong. But then you start spewing dribble and invalidated your comment, it just turned into a pathetic insult.

And look at all the idiots that agreed with your comment.

TheCommentator1538d ago (Edited 1538d ago )

Dont Hate, I believe Just Cause 3 is only DX12 on PC right now. As with Dying Light, the devs are toying around with DX12 and may patch it into the XB1 version as well. I'm pretty sure that as of right now only Fable Legends and Deus Ex have confirmed console DX12 support but, based on the headline, I was surprised to see that the optimizations for Dying Light were not a result of a DX12 patch though. That means more improvements to come if DX12 does in fact get patched in.

Edit: Two people, both with Game in their names, similar grammar, extreme Sony fans, and ignorant about DX12? I'm sure it's just coincidence...

MachuchalBrotha3161538d ago

@game, NO! DX12 has not been out for 2yrs.

Docknoss1538d ago

DirectX12 has barely been out and games take a couple years to Develop you Mook.

GameNameFame1538d ago (Edited 1538d ago )

Here you go with another desperate wishing of DX12.


Except CPU scheduler and etc has been available to devs on Xbox one and PS4 both. LOL.It already has low API. DX12 may bring consistent API on both console and PC. Giving PC low API as well.

@people saying "bu bu bu, game hadnt had time to"

Yea. They did with Fable. Spencer came out and said it will give 20 % boost to PC ONLY.

How many times are you going to desperately hope for secret sauces? WE have gone through 10 sauces at least so far.

And guess what? Gap increased.

tuglu_pati1538d ago

DX12 will help the Xbox some how, will it make a big different, no. Accept it and move on.

The major benefits of DX12 will come on the PC hardware side of things.

So the game does not use DX12 support. So nothing new. I dont expect to see those games that use DX12 till Fall 2016. Only one game I know that uses it and it is ashes of singularity and its PC only.

MachuchalBrotha3161538d ago

Isnt Fable Legends a DX12 title on PC?

MCTJim1538d ago (Edited 1538d ago )

it is, but it isn't, it was designed on dx11 and converted to dx12

rainslacker1538d ago (Edited 1538d ago )

Dunno if upconverted is the right term. There's still a lot of DX11 base code within DX12. For console, about the only thing that changed, as far as I've seen so far, is a new rendering pipeline which is more efficient, and better use of memory for allocating resources between the GPU/CPU and better implementation of the ESRAM.

On PC, much of DX12 is still the same as DX11. The new rendering pipeline exists, but more importantly, the OS layer is removed from the equation, thus giving "close to the metal" performance since the games can now directly access the driver(which is about as close as you'd want to allow on a PC)...which on a console can also be done, but it's also possible to bypass the driver for certain functions to get even closer to the metal.

So basically, these upconverted games use the new rendering pipelines and the new memory manager and possibly bypass the OS layer.

_LarZen_1539d ago

I'm so glad I bought this for PC. Sure it's possible to play on the PS4 or even the XBO. But it's such a visual more fun game to play when it can manage to hold a steady frame rate.

And if you can play it at 60 fps it's like playing an entire new game.

donthate1539d ago

I kind of agree about the frame rate, but it also depends on the game. Some games it makes a huge difference, and others it doesn't matter at all.

The one thing that barely affects anything though is the resolution, that seem to be the focus for some reason. I personally prefer higher and stable frame rate over resolution.

Resolution is overrated in my opinion.

MachuchalBrotha3161538d ago

I dont think you super visuals will make any more fun than the other versions. Its still the same fun game.

_LarZen_1538d ago

Just as it's more fun and enjoyable to watch a Blu-ray movie over a DVD. It's more fun and enjoyable to play a game with good frame rate and as much eye candy as possible.

That's just the cold hard truth.

tee_bag2421538d ago (Edited 1538d ago )

Nah.. I've been playing this at 100+ fps second on a 144hz monitor. It's truly something to behold. It makes a massive difference. Only someone who hadn't experienced both would make such a statement
