Browne while hard at work on his upcoming survival horror game Caffiene, was asked if Direct X 12 had any performance upgrades he replied
"Oh it should help a lot. I've been in the Direct X12 developer program for a while. So, I've been playing around with a lot of those builds of Unreal Engine and seeing how they play out. Usually you're seeing a 20-ish% performance increase in most cases. So it definitely boosts the FPS which would allow to increase, especially on Xbox, which is a little more underpowered obviously then you're PS4".
To clarify developers of Unreal Engine 4 can look forward to 20% FPS increase with Direct X 12?
Caffiene's first segment of three will be released this year on PC, with console versions coming out some time in 2016.
Many upcoming games are being developed in Unreal Engine 4 including Kingdom Hearts 3, Shenmue 3 and Street Fighter V.
Let's hope Direct X 12 has a positive effect on each of those games and upcoming games in the future!
