During a recent earnings call with the CEO of AMD, Lisa Su, she inadvertently let the launch window for Windows 10 slip when discussing the release of the DirectX 12 API.
“What we also are factoring in is, with the Windows 10 launch at the end of July, we are watching the impact of that on the back-to-school season, and expect that it might have a bit of a delay to the normal back-to-school season inventory buildup,” -Lisa Su, CEO AMD
We already knew that Windows 10 would launch sometime this summer, but now we have a tighter time frame for that release. Windows 10 will also launch with the DX12 API and that will spur development on the latest DirectX platform. This will mean we could see a few DX12 games later this year that take full advantage of the new Os and API.
