    As mentioned, the latest Microsoft Bulk Load Demo now supports DirectStorage 1.2. By default, the demo uses GPU decompression.

    DirectStorage promises to reduce load times across all storage devices. While many assume that this method only works with SSDs, it will also work with HDDs. In principle, everyone will benefit from this.

    As previously reported, the PC version of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart will be the first game to support DirectStorage 1.2 with GPU decompression.
