Also unreplicable on other consoles due to other things.

So somehow changing graphics API will make the card faster? I'm not sure about this information.

Read the article. The topic title is a total lie. Microsoft estimated a 20% increase boost per frame for an increase of 248 Gflops to about 1.44Tflops total for the X1. Still under the PS4's 1.84.

Nice try though at spinning an article you apparently didnt read. The main draw of DX12 is going to be to streamline the overhead for multi-threading. With the lower level hardware access as well as less background running on the X1 the overhead wasnt nearly as much of a concern on the console.

Microsoft also claims that the Xbox One will get a 20% boost per frame due to 20% more Gflops being available for use.


So I doubt it... But how at least it will only be 30% slower

The universe has a way of changing reality without logical explanations.Sometimes things are just DESTINED to happen, whether it makes sense or not. Deals with the devil and all.

Remember when Q fixed the orbit of the moon just by clicking his fingers?

A tc that doesn't know what he's talking about then uses spin to make an attractive title. Like FOX News.

John Carmack is laughing at this. Sorry. But nope.

I'm an Xbox fan, but this sounds too good to be true. It'll likely boost the performance a bit, but not significantly or like Microsoft claims it will. I hope they prove me wrong.
#9dnmtPosted 3/21/2014 3:26:54 AM
If it boosts performance that much why did they have to use Nvidia's strongest graphics card ever to showcase it? Seems to have the opposite effect of what they intended, no?

XB1 people are a funny bunch keep hoping for miracles from MS. Maximum Gflops is dictated by hardware specs, not software.

A bad software/driver may utilize only 40-50% of the maximum theoretical power, better software may utilize close up to 90%. But it can't over come the hardware limit. If the specs says 1.18 Gflops, then that is the absolute best power the software can reach.
