SIGGRAPH 2014: DirectX 12 on Intel
« on: August 15, 2014, 04:27:12 PM »
This week at SIGGRAPH 2014 Intel is showing a technology demo using Microsoft's upcoming DirectX 12 API that highlights the strong relationship between performance and power.

In the demo we render a scene of 50,000 fully dynamic and unique asteroids in one of two modes: maximum performance and maximum power saving. The application can switch between using the DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 APIs at the tap of a button. We are showing the demo in our SIGGRAPH booth running live on a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablet with an Intel® 4th Generation Core™ processor.

All of the results here were captured when the tablet was running in a steady, thermally-constrained state. This represents the experience of playing a demanding game for more than 10-15 minutes.
