"The vast majority of DX12 titles in 2015/2016 are partnering with AMD"

 

Right now DirectX 12 is one of the most hotly disputed topics among PC gamers and enthusiasts, offering a greatly updated feature set compared to it's predecessor and containing the potential to greatly change the the direction in which GPU development moves. 

Right now AMD and Nvidia are not exactly fighting on equal footing, with Nvidia claiming a massive 82% of the discrete GPU market share with AMD claiming a rather disappointing 18% of the market. 

Right now a very hotly disputed issue is how well AMD and Nvidia are prepared for DirectX 12, with Asynchronous compute capability taking the spotlight. Right now AMD is said to have a greater ability to use Asynchronous compute, which will potentially allow them to gain some extra performance and regain some marketshare.

 

Oxide Developer says â??NVIDIA was Putting Pressure on them to

 

Right now a lot of people are saying that AMD are more prepared for DirectX 12 than Nvidia are with AMD's Global head technical marketing director, Robert Hallock, claiming that the "vast majority of DX12 titles are pairing up with AMD" due to their experience with low level API's and their ability to aid with both console and PC development.  

 

“You will find that the vast majority of DX12 titles in 2015/2016 are partnering with AMD. Mantle taught the development world how to work with a low-level API, the consoles use AMD and low-level APIs, and now those seeds are bearing fruit.”

 

 

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Confirmed to support DirectX 12 and TressFX 3.0

 

Right now there are relatively no DirectX 12 games which are known to be partnering with Nvidia, with the exception of Ark: Survival Evolved, an Nvidia GameWorks title which is currently available on Steam Early Access. 

Right now it is unknown who will win the new DX12 GPU war, but right now it looks like AMD are set to gain the most performance from the new API. How the first fully released games will perform on DirectX 12 remains a mystery, but you can be certain that we at OC3D will be looking into DirectX 12's performance as soon as games are released using this graphics API.

I hope so, it's about time AMD lead the way. I had been beginning to think twice about my 295x2 purchase a few months ago but AMD are now making me think I chose the right "Team"Quote

I don't quite understand why people would go with AMD considering their market share? surely that's.. kinda.. like.. whut?Quote

I really hope its because people associate gameworks with terrible games or that AMD's tech is much more open/stronger. They better not be lying/used the R&D cash pot to pay off devs.

Still, atleast GE doesn't screw people over who don't own a AMD card. I really hope this is the start of good times for AMD.Quote

295 is awesome i have one! If i could house it, id have 2

But....I got a feeling its the openness of AMD tech which will help them, and the fact that lets face it, AMD stuff is cheaper, and im not being funny, the way DirectX 12 is supposed to help utilise hardware to its maximum potential, i can see it working in their favour, this will then hopefully push nvidia to cut prices thus creating more competition and further developing new hardware.

People also need to stop going on about market share and stuff all that is kind of irrelevant, because market shares can change per quarter, i mean it only takes a manufacturer to knock £50-£60 of the top tier gpu, and that is enough to sway people, and then the stats are released and look market share has changed, Bit like Apple and Samsung yeah?Quote

Tress FX in the absolutely stonking Tomb Raider worked perfectly on my GTX 670s. None of this derping other hardware nonsense.

TBH? I never had any troubles when I was using Geforce cards and I saw the "AMD" logo upon start up.

Gameworks on AMD on the other hand? dear god, let's hope this is right and AMD are reaching out to gamers (though I must say that neither Deus Ex or Ashes get me excited in any way).

Said it before and I will say it again, if it wasn't for Fallout 4 I would likely have sold my gaming PC. There just isn't anything on the horizon that remotely interests me (well, aside from ME2 and the new NFSU) but I bet both of those won't live up to the hype.Quote
