Even though Windows 10 and DX12 have been available for a while, there haven’t been enough tech demos to showcase what this new API is capable of. And that’s sad because DX12 is being advertised as something really revolutionary.
Well, even though Crytek and Epic Games have not released any DX12 as of yet, has ported Unreal Engine 4’s Elemental Tech Demo from DX11 to DX12.
Those interested can download this DX12 tech demo from here.
As CryZENx noted, this custom DX12 version gave him a performance boost over the original DX11 version.
However, we do have to note that the TOD (Time of Day) seems to be different between these two versions as we can see in the following images (on the left is DX12 and on the right is DX11).
John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
