Deus Ex: Mankind Divided™ released globally to public praise on August 23rd with DirectX® 11 support. Today, developers Eidos and Square Enix announced that DirectX® 12 support is live.

 

The renowned world of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided™ is taken to a whole new level with Microsoft’s DirectX 12 API, AMD’s Graphics Core Next (GCN) and Polaris architectures.

 

DirectX® 12 takes advantage of asynchronous compute – GPU multitasking that virtually eliminates frame render scheduling issues, allowing developers to create a richer mix of compute and graphics workloads simultaneously on your GPU. The end result is more efficient use of your GPU to enable a more immersive gaming experience due to increased graphics clarity, high frame rates, and enhanced AI.

 

“As the fastest adopted API in the last decade – hardware, software and game support for DirectX12’s asynchronous compute features are vital to ensure gamers experience maximum performance optimization for their hardware,” said Julien Bouvrais, CTO of Eidos-Montreal. “A standout feature of AMD Radeon graphics are asynchronous shaders, which allow game developers like us to make more efficient use of the hardware with DirectX12, extracting more performance, faster frame rates and improved responsiveness.”

 

  • Up to 46% faster performance at 1920x1080 high preset on Deus Ex: Mankind Divided DirectX® 12 edition using RSCE 16.9.1 and Radeon™ Sapphire Nitro+ RX 480 8GB than with GTX 1060 FE and GeForce Experience 372.70 WHQL.1

 

AMD Radeon graphics users are ready to game in the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's DirectX12 patch, with our latest version of Radeon Software 16.9.1.

 

1 Testing conducted by AMD Performance Labs as of September 7th, 2016 on the Radeon™ Sapphire Nitro+ RX 480 8GB and Nvidia GTX 1060 FE, on a test system comprising Intel i7 5960X CPU (3.0 GHz), 16GB DDR4-2666 Mhz system memory, Radeon Software Crimson Edition driver 16.9.1, GeForce Experience 372.70 WHQL and Windows 10 x64 using the game Deus Ex: Mankind Divided DirectX®12 on the high preset. PC manufacturers may vary configurations, yielding different results. At 1920x1080, GeForce Experience 372.70 WHQL and Nvidia GTX 1060 FE running Deus Ex: Mankind Divided DirectX®12 scored 55 and Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.9.1 running Deus Ex: Mankind Divided DirectX®12 scored 69.5 on Radeon™ Sapphire Nitro+ RX 480 8GB, which is 46% faster performance. Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers. RS-60

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided™ launched globally today, by developers Eidos Montreal and Square Enix.

 

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided™, the sequel to the critically acclaimed Deus Ex: Human Revolution®, builds on the franchise’s trademark choice and consequence, plus action-RPG based gameplay, to create both a memorable and highly immersive experience.

 

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided™ delivers enhanced visual fidelity through PureHair™ technology, Eidos Montreal’s and Square Enix’s hair simulation solution created in collaboration with AMD’s Radeon Technologies Group.

 

PureHair™ is an amazing example of what happens when you provide a talented developer with complete and open access to a 3D graphics effect like AMD’s TressFX Hair: they can reference it, modify it, and improve it to reflect their artistic vision.
