Direct X12


New Member
Has anyone seen or compared direct x 11 vs 12 on the Surface 3? Is there any gain to be had in rendering quality. As far as I understand the S3 Atom X7 supports directx12 as its native in Windows 10. What does this do for the GPU bench mark for S3 as well; almost all bench marks have used the DX9 engine for viewing comparisons on video rendering vs other systems such running ARM processors. But I've yet to see a full 64bit x11 vs x12 comparison for the S3.

Also how does x12 on the surface 3 stack up to ARM and NVidia games? I know gaming in this system is kinda ehhh besides store games but I use an AC router streaming from my Xbox 1 and the rendering/quality is more then playable (yes I know the x1 does most of the work)....

AFAK To see it one needs an application that is written to use it, right now that's barely more prevalent than hens teeth.
