Deus Ex: Mankind Divided™ released globally to public praise on August 23rd with DirectX® 11 support. Today, developers Eidos and Square Enix announced that DirectX® 12 support is live.
DirectX® 12 takes advantage of asynchronous compute – GPU multitasking that virtually eliminates frame render scheduling issues, allowing developers to create a richer mix of compute and graphics workloads simultaneously on your GPU. The end result is more efficient use of your GPU to enable a more immersive gaming experience due to increased graphics clarity, high frame rates, and enhanced AI.
“As the fastest adopted API in the last decade – hardware, software and game support for DirectX12’s asynchronous compute features are vital to ensure gamers experience maximum performance optimization for their hardware,” said Julien Bouvrais, CTO of Eidos-Montreal. “A standout feature of AMD Radeon graphics are asynchronous shaders, which allow game developers like us to make more efficient use of the hardware with DirectX12, extracting more performance, faster frame rates and improved responsiveness.”
