mikejuk (1801200) writes "This is a strange story that is difficult to make sense of. An AMD Vice President of Global Channel Sales, Roy Taylor, has said that there will be no DirectX12 at any time in the future. In discussing, in an interview with German magazine, Heise.de, the new trend for graphics card manufacturers to release top quality games bundles registered to the serial number of the card, Taylor explains that his is the way to go now that the DirectX update cycle is no longer driving the market.
"there will be no DirectX 12. That's it. "
Last January there was another hint that things weren't fine with DirectX when Microsoft sent an email to its MVPs that said http://games.slashdot.org/story/13/02/01/0245208/microsoft-phases-out-xna-and-directx:
"DirectX is no longer evolving as a technology."
Which was quickly corrected but without mentioning any prospect of DirectX 12.
So is it just another error or rumor? Can you dismiss something that AMD are basing their future marketing strategy on?"
