DirectML is coming to Windows 10 in Spring 2019

Move over DXR, there's a new addition to DirextX on the way.



Read more about Microsoft's DirectML API.

If the image is true then that is pretty a impressive improvement but probably at the expense of performance.

In a way it will be like DXR, it won't be that useful without specialised hardware. Nvidia already has this with Tensor cores, though AMD has said that their 7nm Vega GPU has support for "new deep learning ops".

It will be very interesting to see how Deep learning will impact gaming over time. At a minimum, we should be able to expect a DirectML alternative to Nvidia's DLSS, which is good news for everybody.

I am hoping they come up with something that offloads some tasks to the CPU now that multi core is now the norm.

The launch of DX12 was to improve cpu efficiency. So we already got it

And with these new APIs and hardware features, it is likely that more devs will move to DirectX 12. You can't use DirectML or DXR with DX11 after all.
