Because there are direct x drivers for some hardware feature doesn't mean it has no use for equivalent functions on other APIs. MS pulled the same disingenuous strategy when they alluded that only the xbox one could use mega textures because DX 12 + esram.
Companies market like this because people believe and evangelize it. Imagine if PS4 had DirectX 11.2/12 with their XB1/PC exclusive features like asynchronous computer and tiled resources.
Gotta love new console gens:
