Reading some old post of many members here over the last 3 years,i came to the conclusion that many lemmings did in fact hype DX12 as a performance enhancer for the xbox one.
Many actually believed that the API would,change the outcome of the fight or at the very least tie it.
I have been a fierce fighter against DX12 claims since basically day 1,the api was nothing more console low level API brought to PC late by MS because AMD was making noise with Mantle and rumors of Opengl group fallowing the same foot steps.
The API would never improve the xbox one by 100% like Brad Wardell claim it was clear he was making PR for MS,or like other lemmings such as Blackace,stormyjoe,ronvalencia and tdkmilksy among many others.
I think is time many people who insulted me,make fun of me and downplay my argument many times eat crow,and admit that DX12 promises turned into salt,and that the real beneficiary of DX12 like with Vulkan and Mantle was PC.
We'll see. There's more to the XB1 then what we currently see. As Phil said. We haven't told you everything about the XB1 yet.
Microsoft worked with AMD to create customized CPU/GPU to work hand and hand with DX12. A lot of the customization doesn't work with DX11.* and it won't start working until full DX12 is installed. We'll see what they show at GDC.
LOL @El Tormo's meltdown. Anyone actually reading all that garbage he's writing?
@StormyJoe said: @tormentos: What the f**k is the matter with you?First off, you are not a programmer - so, you really don't know anything about what APIs really are and how they work. Secondly, you are not an engineer - so, you really don't know how the inner workings of technology really functions. Thirdly, there is not one fricken article ANYWHERE on the internet that says what you are saying. In fact, the opposite is true - there are dozens of articles contradicting what you are saying.
Are you that stubborn that you just won't admit your mistake?
I have lots of crow to hand out.
Who will it go to?
People who are claiming that DX12 will have an impact on The One, or those that claim it won't?
I am guessing the later.
You keep thinking that. Technically Win10/DX12 can't even function on the current XB1 hardware, so why are they putting in on the XB1? lmao!! As I said before, DX12 is the key. It'll be like hitting warp drive on the Millenium Falcon when all is said and done. Keep a tissue handy at the GDC and E3 events. I think you're going to need them.
Ohh and there will be a DX12 Pocast with Brad Wardell happening today at 2pm. Should be interesting to see what he has to say.
They are ALL afraid. Kelian, GrenadeLick, El Tormo are all scared as shit. That's why they continue to bash anything positive about the XB1 and it future. Devs won't be using the lowly DX 11 for long once DX12 is fully on the XB1. The Cloud will be used for graphical effects in ScreamRide and Crackdown 3. Phil isn't going to confirm anything because they're all under NDA. I'm sure no one listened to that Podcast of Brad Wardell. DX11 is shit compared to DX12. It's like night and say. DX11 bottleneck CPU, DX12 multi-thread to CPU/GPU.
Yeah, I'm a lem that plays PC and PS4 games and praises games like Bloodborne, Infamous Second Son, Diablo 3 (PS4), No Man's Sky, Divinity: Original Sin, Wasteland 2, Star Citzen and many other games that I've played or will be playing. Just because I defend XB1 doesn't make me a lem.
Not really incredible to believe Blackace was the most sold out lemming not only on DX12,but on the cloud and even DX12,i think is time you people not only admit you were wrong,but that you be more careful with what you believe from MS,after the XBO claims of DX12 and even worse the cloud,i think is safe to say in 2017 that DX12 dreams on XBO turned into salt.
I bring this because Scorpio is soon to release and many here,not only believe the console is something more than a mid range equivalent hardware compare to PC,but some are derange enough to claim it would beat a 1070GTX or 1080GTX for that matter like Ronvlencia though.
The XBO X will be the most powerful console on the market this holiday,unlike lemmings you will not see me claiming a secret tool will turn the tied,or that FP16 will change the outcome,the XBO X will be the most powerful console until sony next platform and nothing will change that,but as i say i think some of you need to be reminded of how foolish you once were,and you need to lower your expectations,the fact alone that MS recognize checkerboard and dynamic 4k as true 4k is pretty telling.
