Direct ML returns with improvements thanks to partnership between AMD and Microsoft

    It's been a while since Microsoft launched Direct ML technology, a Machine Learning feature that may assist enhance gaming visuals, make npcs smarter, and be utilized in other fields such as research. This capability will be available in the future for PCs and Xboxes equipped with AMD's newest RDNA 2 technology, but it may not currently be publicly tested on PCs.

    There has already been testing of an alpha version, which revealed that Direct ML improved about 3.7x the performance on previously tested GPUs, but now in more recent tests, the improvements reached 4.4x on RDNA 2 GPUs, as shown in some AI Benchmarks using AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT and RX 6600 XT cards.

    This feature promises to improve and considerably simplify the processing of artificial intelligence algorithms, resulting in improved outcomes in a variety of fields, including gaming. Because both the PC and Xbox feature DirectX 12, we should see some improvements in games on these platforms, whether in terms of visuals, performance, animations, or any other area where Direct ML may be utilized to improve the final product. We can only wait and see what happens in the future, as well as what others who will be trying this functionality on the PC from now on will say.
