Microsoft will announce the DirectX 12 on March 20 at the GDC event
On match 20th, game developers will be looking closely at the next version of Microsoft's graphics API se at the Game Developer Conference (GDC). Though Microsoft has decided not to reveal so much information on this, we do know for sure that AMD, Intel, NVIDIA and Qualcomm are onboard with it right now.
There is no detail available on the company's official website but we have been thrown a couple of good hints whicch came in through the GDC schedule for the DirectX event. From what the description tells, DirectX 12 will offer lower-level access to hardware following a similar approach like a AMD did with its Mantle API. This lower level acces means that you are able to get the most out of it and make better use of it.
We should be expecting an announcement for the DirectX 12 but it is to be noted that it will not be releasing till the next year. We can possibly see it coming along with a Windows 9 version since we are all aware how Microsoft likes to pair Direct X with new versions of Windows.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
