Mark your calendars! On March 20th 2014 at GDC Microsoft will be unveiling DX12 to the world. Not only that but they have so much as said the xbox one supports it in hardware and they have added the Xbox One logo to the conference flyer.

If this holds true, it is a strong indication we know 'not much' about the internals of the X1 hardware. Sounds like it was designed for DirextX 12 all along.

The PS4 hardware is only at the equivalent level of DirectX 11.1 or possibly, if it can do Titling, then at DX11.2 levels. It can never be at DX12 caliber but the Xbox One is in the hardware. Krazy stuff if this turns out to be the case!

It means the xbox one is not just packing a AMD 7900 GPU, it's either super modified and or it has another 'thing' up its sleeve!

Of course, is case you do not understand my train of thought, the PS4 with never run any form of Direct X, only the equivalent alternatives.

Please tell me your thoughts about this

This is really going to be an exciting time. I really believe M$ have something up their sleeves. Hopefully this is it!

Ohh! It feels like everything Microsoft did in the beginning they changed so they can compete with the PS4. (Yes, they would still compete but the changes they made were a big plus.)

I'm no expert at all the tech stuff, but from what I've heard from a few people in my school it's a big plus though.

I wonder how long it's gonna take until like a "updated version" or "slim version of the X1 is released. I remember buying the Xbox 360 slim after my white one got the red ring and was so loud at all times.

Probaly gonna be awhile though.

It was confirmed by Phil Spencer today that FULL DX12 is coming to the X1. This means X1 is next gen. No current gen fully supports DX12 features while DX12 can be used on most current gen they do not fully support it in hardware but the xbox one does.

Exciting times! Future games are going to rock!

I really wish they would release more info on DX12. I'm sitting here anxiously waiting for the update, which will happen god knows when. What will the DX12 update bring to Xbox One? Will it make the current games look better or will only newer games benefit from it. The main question I want an answer to is will the Xbox One look as good as PS4 after the update. HQ Ozzy picked up a PS4 and compared several games and he said overall the PS4 look better and was faster.

Anyone else?
