Read more on Nvidia's DirctX 12 support to Fermi.

Good god that is such an ugly card. Boy I'm glad we have progressed.
On a side note, it's a useless update. These cards won't gain crap with the driver. I mean most had 1GB Vram iirc, it'll have bigger issues than DX12 support

The DX12 Resource Binding being upgraded from Tier 2 to Tier 3 on Pascal cards has me interested.

I still use my GTX 480 from time to time it can play KF2 pretty well, pretty much the most demanding 3d game I play right now, it also doubles as a heater in winter.

I like that all Nvidia features are software based.
