DirectX 12 will arrive alongside Windows 10

Microsoft will ship DirectX 12 alongside Windows 10 in 2015, the computing firm has announced.

The company has also revealed the latest version of its DirectX API will be supported by Unreal Engine 4.4. Developers in the Early Access program who subscribe to UE4 will also have access to the DX12 port of the engine.

Microsoft claims the API reduces CPU overhead significantly compared to the previous version, and was designed from scratch to take full advantage of advanced GPU hardware features on new-gen systems.
