Ivy Bridge GPU is DirectX 11

Written by Fuad Abazovic


Significantly faster than Sandy B
Ivy Bridge will get DirectX 11 support and you will be able to at least get the check box on all seven games that run on this Microsoft's latest API.

We got confirmation that Ivy Bridge is not just Sandy Bridge's Tock or shrink from 32nm to 22nm, and that the graphics core is undergoing some significant changes. The most obvious one is the fact that this graphics core supports DirectX 11 but we are quite sure that it won’t score that great in proper games like Crysis 2.

Intel will be happy that some DirectX 11 games will work on its integrated graphics, but Intel representatives have reminded us that high end gamers will still prefer to go for discrete solutions that can offer better experience.

It looks like Intel is finally getting over Larabee but even without good graphics it manages to capture massive 60 percent of the total graphics market. On the media performance side, Intel is doing quite well, as it can transcode video and to some video editing almost on par with its discrete competitors, if not even better in some cases.

DirectX 11 looks like it will stick with us for a while and we don't expect any major update before Windows 8 and probably even later.

"DirectX 11 looks like it will stick with us for a while and we don't expect any major update before Windows 8 and probably even later. "

Win 8 most likely won't have DX12, and why should it? Out of the thousands of the currently played games how many of them are DX11? 10? 20? Maybe we have 30 decent titles? Hardly worth the step to DX12, especially if you know how much DX11 can offer.

Plus, software can move pretty quickly if needed, it's hardware that has to catch up.

Edit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_games_with_DirectX_11_support So 24 games :)

Sorry, but why will there be a DX11.1? Link to anything recent other than speculation? A minor version only will come if there were problems that needed fixing of the major... DX10 had its problems cause of nVidia... DX11 does not, so most likely it will jump to DX12.

So you say the proof that Microsoft will release 11.1 is based on Intel slides?

I like your logic, let other companies release other companies product names!

And how do you guess that Microsoft might not call it something else?
