This is fantastic! I knew tha DX12 woulda have a similar impact on gaming, but boy I'm happy to hear about it. It would make a huge improvment for me in the moment since I'm running on board graphics, but the thing I like the most is that DX12 is for everyone and just a proprietary nVidia or AMD thing and the best of all it is free! I can't wait for it coming.

Microsoft and both Nvidia and AMD have said all their top end cards will be compatible with DX12.

They won't, just their current top end cards i.e 770, 780, 780 Ti, Titan etc...

*EDIT*

Nevermind spoke too soon, "Nearly" all 400, 500 and 600 series cards will be supported while all 700 series cards will get support but things might change.

It will just be a driver update. That is the only way older cards can get the support, though however as Dicehunter has said it is subject to change.

if its not coming to windows 7.. i will wait untill windows 9 to rejoice about an api improvement that we should have seen with dx 11.
as far as im concerened ms could have cranked this api out "or atleast the benifits of low level hardware access" any time they liked, and are only releasing it now due to the fact mantle had such good press.. but instead of releasing similar sooner they chose to do incrimental tedious and meaningless update which co-insoded with a new os release. and added "you can get this new direct x if you buy our new opperating system"
i know thats how they suckerd me in to getting vista. well fool me once shame on you fool me twice and im an idiot.. well im not an idiot so i will wait for windows 9.

We will see the real benefits if we can test them. (I mean DX12 and Manitle)
I hope the game developers will use them in the right way.
As I know Windows 8.1 will support DX12. Windows 7 will not have this option.
