As GDC comes to an end, we are here to fill you in on what we saw and experienced!

Microsoft has just announced that DirectX 12, which is the latest version of the company's graphics APIs, at the 2014 Game Developers Conference. What was pretty surprising is that many existing computers, smartphones, and even the Xbox One will see boosts in performance when the new tools arrive. Usually when new versions of DirectX are released they promise users beautiful graphics for your games in exchange of letting go some big bucks to get the latest chips. However, Microsoft has said that DirectX 12 will run on their existing chips. Microsoft however declined to answer to the public whether or not DX12 will support Windows 7.

Somethings that were not cleared up were how much of a performance improvement will we be seeing on Xbox One games, Smartphones or PCs. They showed some charts showing that the APIs could halve the time a single CPU core spends on a task by offloading it to the GPU, and claims that DX12 can lead to using less power towards graphics processing on smart phones as well. 

Microsoft says DX12 games will arrive around 2015, however we can expect to see some previews available later this year.
