DirectX 12 details unveiled: Holiday 2015 release with support for NVIDIA, AMD and Intel graphics

DirectX 12 details unveiled: Holiday 2015 release with support for NVIDIA, AMD and Intel graphics

It's official, Microsoft has just unveiled its plans for DirectX 12. Just like Mantle, DirectX 12 will feature more "low-level" support and will be backwards compatible with DirectX 11 games.

For a long time, the CPU has been a bottleneck when it comes to gaming. Graphics cards have been increasing in performance exponentially while CPU's have not kept up in pace. To address the issue, DirectX 12 now puts more of the load on the GPU as opposed to the CPU.

There is one thing, however, that leaves us wanting more. DirectX 12 isn't slated to be officially released until Holiday of 2015. You read that right, a year and a half from now. Until then, hopefully Microsoft decides to release more information and perhaps release some tech demos. All pictures are courtesy of PcPerspective.
