Battlefield 4 Will Support Windows 8’s Exclusive DX11.1; DX11.1 Will Improve CPU Performance

Battlefield 4 v4
Battlefield 4 is among the most anticipated games of 2013. A couple of days ago, some PC requirements were leaked via the game’s Ubisoft store page. DICE was quick to react and claimed that those requirements were not the real deal, however we got word that BF4 will support DX11.1, Windows 8’s exclusive API.
Johan Andersson, Technical Director on Frostbite at DICE, posted on NeoGAF and claimed that Battlefield 4 will fully support DX11.1 and that this particular API will offer improved CPU performance.
As Johan said:
“We use DX11.1, there are some optimizations in it (constant buffer offsets, dynamic buffers as SRVs) that we got in to the the API that improves CPU performance in our rendering when one runs with DX11.1. This will be in BF4.”
Battlefield 4 is based on Frostbite 3 and promises give players the freedom to do more and be more for an unrivalled entertainment experience, and will feature dynamic destructible environments.
Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
