What is Brigade, in UE4 terms?

What is Brigade, in UE4 terms?

I read this: “Brigade is a powerful graphics API that can easily replace Microsoft DirectX® or OpenGL® graphics within popular game engines such as Epic Games’ Unreal Engine”

I’m an Octane user, and wondering what is going on? Sounds cool.

To me it sounds just like it says, its a graphics API. Basicly its just going to affect preformance. Much like Mantle or DirectX

OMG…That looks insanely cool. Wondering what Epic has to say about this. :smiley:

I created a forum thread too: Brigade 3.0. A new graphics API. - Community & Industry Discussion - Unreal Engine Forums
