oh crap, fanboy! rumor: DX12 will upgrade X1 GPU to 900Mhz

#1eastofeastsidePosted 8/17/2014 4:11:15 PM
B3D forums rumor that CPU overhead reduction efficiency of DX12 will allow an X1 GPU clock upgrade of ~50mhz to 900Mhz. Might be just a mode developers have access to or the actual new speed.

Microsoft is genius! It all makes sense now, Sony fanboys destroyed!

Well, if DX12 does lower power consumption like one person had said (can't remember who), that will mean the APU will run cooler most likely, leaving room for a clock boost if they want.

So in other words, this is very possible.

It was their plan all along. Make Sony think they have better hardware and then boom shoot them down with Dx12. In all honesty it most lijely wont do very much. Phil Spencer said it wouldn't 2 months ago. I guess they could have upgraded it since the though.

Oh, and I don't know if you're new here, but you'll need a link, and even at that, linking to a forum (no matter how credible the community there is) isn't a good way to present news/rumors. Although most the guys over at B3D know a thing or two.

In English what does this mean haha?

Also got a link to back up this statement? I would like to read up on really anything DX12 can do to the X1. Also would this in theory, if true, make the X1 even more quite/cool?

You can't get blood out of a turnip. You can overclock that GPU all you like, it isn't going to turn it into a nicer GPU. :u That is how reality works. Unless DX12 has the ability to create a spatial distortion inside the X1 GPU that connects it to the wave existence on a higher plane that allows it to generate limitless power, it isn't going to do much.

The xbone isn't like KOS-MOS. There are no black box functions hidden in it. :v Just broken dreams.

They say she's low down, but it's just a rumor I don't believe 'em.

Beyond 3D forums accurately called the CPU clock upgrade for what it's worth.
