Microsoft logoMicrosoft announces that the next version of DirectX, labeled 11.2, will be offered exclusively on the Xbox One home console and the new version of Windows, named 8.1.

A technical description is offered in the attached video, and the main feature of the new tech will be called tiled resources, allowing developers to create improved textures for their video games.

On the Xbox One, the use of DirectX 11.2 is possible because of the amount of RAM that the console carries.
