Intel is turning heads at SIGGRAPH 2014 by showcasing its upcoming DirectX 12 API. This year's SIGGRAPH in Vancouver is the 41st intentional conference on computer graphics, and one of the highlights is a demonstration comparing DX11 versus DX12, the latter of which underscores the relationship between performance and power. In the demo, simply switching APIs results in up to a 70 percent boost in graphics performance.
