DirectX 12 On Intel At SIGGRAPH 2014

Intel showed off a DirectX 12 demo at SIGGRAPH 2014 that I think most of you will find interesting. Intel plans on releasing the demo publicly once Microsoft releases DirectX 12.

In the demo we render a scene of 50,000 fully dynamic and unique asteroids in one of two modes: maximum performance and maximum power saving. The application can switch between using the DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 APIs at the tap of a button. We are showing the demo in our SIGGRAPH booth running live on a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablet with an Intelآ® 4th Generation Coreآ™ processor.
