Optimizing graphics for Intel® Core™ processors as well as Intel® Atom™ processors is rapidly becoming a strategic imperative for game developers. This article describes how Funcom developed LEGO* Minifigures Online (LMO)to provide exceptional graphical experiences and improved battery life on both platforms.
With UWP apps, Windows 10 ties together a wide variety of potential gaming platforms, with all platforms running variants of the same system and the apps delivered by the same store. Meanwhile, for other PC games, support provided for Steam* makes it even stronger than before. Whichever distribution works for your game, DirectX* 12 brings new life to games with significantly increased power.
Initially shown at SIGGRAPH 2014, Intel's Asteroids code sample uses the Microsoft DirectX* 12 graphics API to render a scene of 50,000 fully dynamic and unique asteroids in two modes: maximum performance and maximum power saving. The application can switch between using the DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 APIs at the tap of a button. Get the sample here!
