Solved Directx 12 and CPU performance Tags: Performance CPUs Directx Last response: March 26, 2014 5:07 PM in CPUs Share Lapiz March 26, 2014 4:34:52 PM Hello, The directx 12 claims to distribute work better between CPU cores. Could that mean that an 8 core FX-8350 could perform better than an I7-3770k?

The number of games using 8 cores is effectively 0 right now and I wouldn't expect that to change in any meaningful way before both of those processors become obsolete.
