Future DX12 Titles Will Be Partnering With AMD, According to AMD Exec
Lately, one of the most debated topics on the Internet has been DX12 in AMD and NVIDIA. We were recently told that AMD nor Nvidia will support full DirectX 12 features for now.
This came as a shock to gamers all around and both AMD and Nvidia were criticised over this. However, we have some great news for AMD users though. According to the Head of Global Technical Marketing at AMD, Robert Hallock, DirectX 12 games in 2015 and 2016 are partnering with AMD.
You will find that the vast majority of DX12 titles in 2015/2016 are partnering with AMD. Mantle taught the development world how to work with a low-level API, the consoles use AMD and low-level APIs, and now those seeds are bearing fruit.
AMD hardware is currently being used by PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and it looks like that’s one of the reasons why the company is being preferred by developers if this claim from Robert Hallock holds truth.
This means that AMD hardware will better support DirectX 12 features in future games. We don’t know what’s the situation with Nvidia, but I don’t think fans should panic just yet.
While seeing AMD getting the best out of DirectX 12 games is great, but we should remember that there is not a single GPU in the market that fully supports DX12. It will be great to see hardware getting upgraded as well to fully utilize DX12 in the future.
