Microsoft are going to hit back at AMD’s new Mantle with the unveiling of DirectX 12 at the GDC (Game developers conference). The event itself is named “DirectX: Evolving Microsoft’s Graphics Platform.”At the event, Development Manager Anuj Gosalia is set to talk about how Microsoft is committed to DirectX API and also talk about the next steps in making DirectX what the people want.
“For nearly 20 years, DirectX has been the platform used by game developers to create the fastest, most visually impressive games on the planet. However, you asked us to do more. You asked us to bring you even closer to the metal and to do so on an unparalleled assortment of hardware. You also asked us for better tools so that you can squeeze every last drop of performance out of your PC, tablet, phone and console. Come learn our plans to deliver.”
