    So if DX12 is compatible with DX11 hardware does that mean when Microsoft makes it a Windows 9 exclusive we can all have a good old whine about it ;)

    Yes, and I personally can't wait for a good moan :D

    The graph looks like it was drawn using MS Paint.

    Either I am just reading this wrong and being an idiot, or the math here is a bit off...

    More than double the performance would be more than 38fps, surely?

    No, it's not you: I had a brainfart, apparently. Should be "roughly," not "more than" - I'll go fix, ta!

    Well, if same hardware can achieve almost 100% higher frame rates solely due to software changes existing software (DX11 in this case) must be really really shitty piece of junk.

    That's a bit harsh, DX11 is almost 5 years old, things move on, developers and consumers demand better graphics as time goes by. Would you say a GTX 295 was a shitty piece of junk when compared to a GTX 780 ?

    FYI I'm not saying having to wait 5 years for a new DX version is a good thing, it's just saying DX11 is rubbish because DX12 may improve things is a little disingenuous.

    wow you're right.... it is almost 5 years. Feels like only 2 or 3, and even that is relatively long. But in another perspective - there are still way too many games that use DX9.
