AMD Details DirectX 12 Multi-GPU And Shared Memory

Written by Joffy S on 30 May 2015 at 16:00

DirectX 12 looks like it’s going to be capable of doing some pretty impressive things, but none more so than Explicit Multiadapter and Shared Memory. Microsoft has been cagey on the details, but AMD has taken the wraps off with an in-depth breakdown of the two technologies.

Explicit Multiadapter is essentially a method for using the power of an integrated GPU with your dedicated graphics card. Normally iGPUs lay dormant and are wasted when using a graphics card, but utilising this power will give users a fairly significant bump in performance. Shared Memory meanwhile is a killer feature for those wanting to run at 4K. With this, CrossFire setups have their memory pools combined, allowing each GPU to offer its full memory for use. [More]
