An Overview of Next-Generation Graphics APIs


Recent announcements of various next-generation, low-level graphics APIs have generated much enthusiastic interest among developers, and early results show dramatic performance gains over prior APIs. This introductory course provides an overview of switching from current to next-gen APIs; discusses similarities between next-gen APIs; covers basic API details for DirectX12, Vulkan, etc.; explores specific case studies from developers working with these APIs; and includes a chance to ask questions of a panel of spec writers and game developers.
