DirectX 12 is launching with Windows 10 and it’s getting a lot of gamers very excited, but unless you keep up with game programming news we’ll forgive you for not knowing what it’s all about. DirectX is a collection of application programming interfaces (API) for handling multimedia development. Essentially, it’s a tool for making games and this 10th iteration promises to gives developers much greater access to the raw power of PCs and the Xbox One. What does that mean for you? Well, on PCs we could be looking at much smoother frame-rates and more detail on the screen. On Xbox One, Microsoft has played down the possibility it will help with frame-rates, but it should make development easier by using less of the CPU or GPU of the console and by extension it should allow game-makers more room to stretch and test the hardware in new ways to get a little more from it.
