Microsoft today introduced DirectX 12 at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco. DX12 is Microsoft’s latest version of the graphics API that is the dominant standard in the PC gaming industry. To demonstrate the new API, Microsoft showed a tech demo of the Xbox One racing game Forza 5 running on a PC powered by an NVIDIA GeForce Titan Black. The demo was quick, but showed Forza 5 running smoothly at ~60 FPS in the room of developers and press.
