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.


So I take it you're a PC master race guy?.. why are you here?

That's for PCs, the X1 claim is further on (20% per frame). If it was that big they would've given gflops per frame not % like with the PC claim.

Basically Forza 5 uses less than 50% of the Xbones powah!

Imagine how good Forza 6 will be at 2.6 TFlops. 120FPS. Locked. 32 cars. 720 physics calcs per frame. Incredible. Xbox. Won.

Lol hent's back after I got him warned. Good times.

G Fax mods says it was TheOrder1866 that got me warned, so thanks for the admission mervin.

Nope, it was me behind the scenes. Weak attempt at claiming it was TheOrder666 so you can claim I'm him.

And good luck with your Forza fantasy.

Also unreplicable on other consoles due to other things.


Read your topic...

Microsoft confirms DX12 = 600 Gflops/sec on X1?
Highlight that for me if you can.
Does it also make 60 Hz games run 120?
Might be a gamer after all.
Not very smart, but a typical gamer...

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.


Finally, it seems at least one console guy gets it

On a console, API overhead should never be an issue unless someone made a blunder
