Farväl till DirectX?

Citat:

Farewell to DirectX?

Despite what delusional forum chimps might tell you, we all know that the graphics hardware inside today's consoles looks like a meek albino gerbil compared with the healthy tiger you can get in a PC. Compare the GeForce GTX 580's count of 512 stream processors with the weedy 48 units found in the Xbox 360's Xenos GPU, not to mention the ageing GeForce 7-series architecture found inside the PS3.

It seems pretty amazing, then, that while PC games often look better than their console equivalents, they still don't beat console graphics into the ground. A part of this is undoubtedly down to the fact that many games are primarily developed for consoles and then ported over to the PC. However, according to AMD, this could potentially change if PC games developers were able to program PC hardware directly at a low-level, rather than having to go through an API, such as DirectX.

AMD vill öppna upp allt och få bort DirectX?
Stämmer ju dock att dagens hårdvara utklassar konsollernas, men ändå har vi ju spel som ser ut som COD4 men ändå tuggar rejält med prestanda.

Det vore ju urbota dumt? Vilket kaos det skulle bli utan något standard API, nej tack! Finns saker att förbättra i DirectX men det har också betytt mycket för PC spels industrin. Saker och ting kan förstås ändras framöver men som det ser ut nu så finns det ingen anledning att byta bort DirectX.
