AMD says current company GPUs will support DirectX 11.2

US chipmaker AMD has denied the information that its current GPUs will not support DirectX 11.2. The new API will arrive in October along with Windows 8.1 and will bring a number of improvements such as D3D tiled resources, which is analogous to OpenGL mega-textures; in addition the latest Microsoft API will offer HLSL shader linking, frame buffer scaling and more.

Previously it was announced that the current Radeon HD 7000-series and Radeon HD 8000-series GPUs would be incompatible with DirectX 11.2 due to a driver, made by Microsoft that will not support these GPUs although they have the necessary hardware to support the new API. Now AMD says that it will release a special driver this fall that will enable DirectX 11.2 on its Radeon HD 7000 and Radeon HD 8000-series cards.

Stay tuned for more information this fall.
