Earlier this week Microsoft announced the March 20 official presentation of DirectX 12 will take place on March 20, coinciding with the celebration of the Game Developers Conference (GDC).

The picture of this presentation now includes the Xbox One logo, an element that leads us to believe that the next generation console from Microsoft will support this new version of their popular API.

As of today, the Xbox One supports DirectX 11.2, as is the case with Windows 8.1, and the jump to DirectX 12 would simply be a natural evolution that ultimately could be very beneficial for the console.

According to early rumors, DirectX 12 will support low-level hardware, similar to what happens with the Mantle technology of AMD, which results in a lower consumption of resources.

It is clear that in next generation consoles, optimization is not only welcome but also necessary.

It’s also important to note that although DirectX 12 will be presented at the GDC, its actual launch could be delayed until spring 2015.
