    Re: DX12 Unreal Engine 4 Elemental Demo download available

    I'd be really interested to see the difference between nvidia and AMD cards using DX12, particularly gtx 970 v Radeon 390 and what improvement has been made over DX11.

    Since DX12 is a low-level API, it should have a close-to-metal access to GPU resources but the limitation/ low performance will be down to memory & Bus Speed. I think the 390 will still win.

    While it's cool it isn't very useful to show off the dx12 boost using a system more powerful than 99% of pc gamers.

    On my test haswell i7+980ti, it ran at 160fps with dips to high 90s in DX11, and 120 with dips to 70 (54 lowest) in DX12. That said, some effects didn't seem to work properly in DX11 mode, resuting in bizarre lense flare effects. Not quite what I was expecting!

    Microsoft has given us a new toy but there are no batteries in the box…
    This happened with DirectX 10 aswell. I remember waiting for games to appear for ages and ages and can only remember a few. Is it possible that we'll be waiting a long time before DirectX 12 will start being used, if at all? Sorry if I've missed things that make it obvious that DX12 is going to be used everywhere.

    I am actually working on a game that will have DX12 Enabled in UE4

    Not really. DX12 is being pushed for XB1, so that will drive it.

    Nobody cares. We're talking about difference between DX11 and DX12 and you haven't even specified which you used. And by the way, 980 Tis overclock too. Only fanboys compare an overclocked GPU to a non-overclocked GPU and make out that's some kind of a win.

    Yeah it was a bit, but that was a really stupid post. And now that I think about it, I fear I / we may have been trolled... ah well :-)

    Can't wait to see what the performance differences are in real games (and how they vary by CPU and GPU). I'm actually hoping for minor gains because I'd prefer to stick with Windows 7!
