On January 22nd Aaron Greenberg (Microsoft Marketing Team Lead *across 1st & 3rd Party Game Studios) confirmed that DirectX 12 will be coming to Windows 10 and Xbox One and will have an effect on both systems. This will only be seen if developers make use of it. This is optimizing the power of the Xbox One with power that it already has, opening up more possibilities with games to come in the future.
@JustinAguiar Both, but devs have to make use of it.

The first game to see this performance enhancement that has been brought up is Fable Legends since this game will be merging players who are playing on Xbox One and Windows 10. In Fable Legends, players will be brought into the fantasy world of Albion for some of the best exploration and adventure found in the series, the adventure doesn’t have to be played alone it can be played with up to four friends who can be playing on either Windows 10 or Xbox One. Players can play as a hero with four separate hero’s and a fifth player can play as the villain where they control from a top down view and plays more like a strategy game.
Personally, I’m hoping that more games with take use of DirectX 12 and can’t wait to see what the future has to bring with the gamer experiences crossing Windows 10 and Xbox One.
