  • UAV (Unordered Access View): Allows data sharing between the Direct3D pipeline and compute shaders, allowing hybrid graphical techniques (3D + GPGPU) in games and applications.
  • New instructions shaders to accelerate image processing tasks, video stabilization, image searches / video, gesture recognition and face.

Although some of the improvements that can be exploited AMD describes in games (UAV), the rest of the improvements of DirectX 11.1 only when used in the user interface of Windows 8 and Internet Explorer 10 browser, so outside those applications do not exist for the moment other applications that show the benefits that proclaim, although this could change in the coming months with the launch of the AMD GPUs and future GPUs Series Nvidia GeForce 700 Series , which also will fully support DirectX 11.1; and shall encourage the release of compatible games and applications.
