    Frostbite 3 Supports DirectX 11.1 API Faster GPU/CPU Performance on PCs and X

    http://wccftech.com/battlefield-4-ge...e-3-confirmed/
    This is awesome and shows the level of CPU and GPU of the xbox one.

    Now this is the interesting bit, DICE confirms that the Frostbite 3 engine supports DirectX 11.1 API as revealed by DSOGaming.

    “We use DX11.1, there are some optimizations in it (constant buffer offsets, dynamic buffers as SRVs) that we got in to the the API that improves CPU performance in our rendering when one runs with DX11.1. This will be in BF4.”

    This means that PC and Xbox One versions of Battlefield 4 would be more optimized than PlayStation 4. There’s also a hint at AMD’s Next “Never Settle Bundle” featuring Battlefield 4 as a free title which is a good deal for AMD users.

    If you have a PC that will run it then the PC version is the superior option.

    This is compared to DX 10.

    The PS4 will be just as optimized.

    I successfully read the article and the API information about the DX 11.1 support in PC and Xbox. Sorry for reading.

    Did it ever occur to you that maybe optimization will result in pretty much the same outcome (when compared to DX features)?

    The article assumes the Xbox version to be superior because it supports DX 11. How does that make any sense? You haven't even seen both versions side by side yet - neither did the article's author... It's a simple feature of the console itself.

    I haven't not only seen both versions side by side yet, but I haven't even played the consoles yet. We are just commenting on an article. That is what everyone does on here.

    Commenting on an article or drawing premature conclusions? There is a fine line...

    I didn't draw the conclusion. The article did.

    This...

    The author draws his own conclusion on one comment by the dev which didn't mention any platform whatsoever.

    No it doesn't. It may have something similar but not DX.

    This is good news for Xbox One users. It means the Xbox One should be even more visually on par with the PS4 version.

    How would the PC benefit console only gamers?
