AMD Releases List of DirectX 12 Supported Products

By   /   Apr 23, 2015

Graphic cards manufacturer AMD has outed a compatibility list for the upcoming DirectX 12 software. The new technology is hyped to greatly improve the quality of video games, as well as allowing existing hardware to meet better optimization and hence pump out better visual fidelity.

What follows is the full list of AMD products that will be compatible with the new DirectX 12. Some of them are currently available in the market, while others have yet to arrive.

  • AMD Radeon™ R9 Series graphics
  • AMD Radeon™ R7 Series graphics
  • AMD Radeon™ R5 240 graphics
  • AMD Radeon™ HD 8000 Series graphics for OEM systems (HD 8570 and up)
  • AMD Radeon™ HD 8000M Series graphics for notebooks
  • AMD Radeon™ HD 7000 Series graphics (HD 7730 and up)
  • AMD Radeon™ HD 7000M Series graphics for notebooks (HD 7730M and up)
  • AMD A4/A6/A8/A10-7000 Series APUs (codenamed “Kaveri”)
  • AMD A6/A8/A10 PRO-7000 Series APUs (codenamed “Kaveri”)
  • AMD E1/A4/A10 Micro-6000 Series APUs (codenamed “Mullins”)
  • AMD E1/E2/A4/A6/A8-6000 Series APUs (codenamed “Beema”)

Competitor Nvidia has gained a significant lead in the GPU market following AMD’s decision to delay the release of its latest lineup. Even the recent VRAM controversy of Nvidia’s GTX 970 was not enough to douse the company’s victory march. The green team is now poised to release GTX 980 Ti next month, a high-end version which will further cement Nvidia’s position as the leading graphic cards manufacturer in the market.

AMD is said to announce its new GPU series later in the summers. According to rumors, its new cards will be incredibly powerful and at a cheaper cost when compared to the pricing of Nvidia.
