SCORN will be the first game to support DirectStorage on PC, to the delight of those who want to check its operation in the field.
The first-person adventure SCORN will have an interesting record since launch: it will be the first game to take advantage of DirectStorage on PC, as confirmed by Ebb Software itself on Twitter, answering a direct question.
User @compusemble asked: “Any details regarding the DirectStorage support for this game? Is it just on Xbox, or will it be supported on PC as well?” To which the developers replied: “DirectStorage is supported on both.”
DirectStorage is a DirectX 12 technology that basically serves to speed up the loading of games, both at startup and during the sessions themselves.
Basically DirectStorage bypasses the CPU by making NVMe SSDs communicate with the GPU and VRAM. Thus the GPU takes on some of the CPU work, relieving it. In this way there are improvements in the framerate and loading times, allowing the use of larger and more complex resources.
