true legit Tripple buffering, and don't restrict it to Win 8/9 please.
Otherwise, Mantle wins.

Yay?

DX never done no wrong by me, except the time I tried to install Resident Evil 5.

Until Nvidia comes up with its own API.

Didn't they say they were? Windows 8 and their policies are the reasons I've been starting to hate Microsoft over the past couple years.

let the API wars commence! (though as a developer itd suck to write to 3 APIs)

lets see some new options/features though... not just optimizations.

game engines need more freedom. 'member when UE3 was new and all the rage?.. every game using UE3 during that time looked and felt the same.

Rumors of Windows 9 for Fall 2014/Spring 2015 would tie in nicely with this. Very possibly my next computer will be a Windows 9 deal, completely skipping over Windows 8 then >_>

I wonder if they designed the Xbox One with DirectX 12 in mind.

I might be thinking of DX 11.2 or something... They made one of them Windows 8 only just to *bleep* with their fans.

EDIT: Yeah it was 11.1 and 11.2. Wouldn't be surprised if they kept it going with 12.

Because DX 12 will most likely be limited to Windows 8+ focusing a huge majority of Windows users to upgrade or be left in the dust, this happened before and its the way the ball rolls so,,,

Also I don't think even have of the software out there has taken advantage of DX11 or even DX10 for that matter, I know its a hard process for many game developers to wait on the next DX updates if they have a huge project in the works and it needs a certain DX API so it actually looks some what as the developers have imagined it.

I have a couple three DirectX 11 games and the image quality is amazing, for example been playing Star Trek on-line as of late and it supports DirectX 11 and my GPU supports the same version and the image quality is just wow just wow!

The only way devs could really take advantage of dx10/dx11 would be to make a game thats dx10 or dx11 only... But consoles make too much money and are only dx9 with a couple dx10 tidbits here or there at best.

Just cause 2 was dx10 only... But it was still developed with dx9 consoles in mind :/

Next gen consoles are dx10/dx11? So we'll finally, after all these years, get true dx10 games with some a couple dx11 bells and whistles (performance allowing) (ha).

So what does dx12 mean for pc gamers? Probably exactly what dx10/11 meant for last gen... Next gen pc games will be dx10/dx11 at their core, and if you have a beefy enough gpu you can enable some dx12 eye candy on top of it all.

...unless dx12 operates differently... It has been some time...
