Today at GDC 2015, Intel showed demos running on Intel hardware using the new DirectX* 12 API from Microsoft
. These demonstrations continue the recent Intel dedication to show support for a new API version from the moment it is announced.
Intel has been collaborating with Microsoft on the design of DirectX 12 since its inception. This API is designed from the ground up for modern integrated designs, such as the 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor with Iris™ graphics. By enabling improved performance and power efficiency, DirectX 12 will support breakthrough user experiences on Intel Iris-powered Ultrabooks™, portable All-in-Ones (portable AIO), and high performance desktops.
