  • Awesome! And a suggestion

    Awesome! And a suggestion

    This is fantastic!

    A suggestion: For data structures that have D3DX12 helpers, it might be handy to mention the names of the helpers or somehow link to them, perhaps in a subtle way that doesn't distract from the nice purity you have in showing all the raw interfaces. The intro could point to where to find the D3DX12 header on GitHub (which I don't actually know offhand, but others can point you to if you haven't found it).

    Direct3D 12.0 quick reference guide Targets Windows 10 SDK version 1151 build 10.0.10586.0 + KB3156421

    KB3156421 added a preview of DXGI 1.5, with DXGI tearing feature. This allows application to force unleashed frame-rate on full-screen borderless mode, enabling "v-sync" off on UWP applications. KB3156421 is required to be installed.
