DirectX 12 Offers 20 Percent Improvement in Graphics Performance

Gamers have known for quite some time that DirectX 12 will not only be exclusive to Windows 10 and offer improved CPU utilization, but that the latest version of the Microsoft API will also offer increased graphics performance. What has been unknown however is just how much DirectX 12 will improve graphics frame rates, until now that is. According to Microsoft executives, the latest version of DirectX is expected to offer a 20 percent improvement in graphics performance, meaning that games that may be on the verge of being unplayable may actually be enjoyable. Bryan Langley, a principal program manager for graphics with Microsoft, stated an Intel press conference at GDC that the increase in performance is equivalent to getting a free hardware upgrade.

With Windows 10 being a free upgrade for Windows 7 and 8 users for a limited time after its release, and with DirectX 12 being supported on a plethora of graphics cards currently available, it seems like the increased performance will make its way to plenty of gamers.
