DX12 would let developers add more detail to games, and I think that would have impact even at the high end. Currently it doesn’t matter how powerful the card, you still get a limited number of draw calls because of the API.

Hopefully this can improve upon performance in a very big way. There really should be no reason you get a new game and get performance issues, so hopefully we can start seeing some big improvements on day 1 games. Also the fact that older GPU’s will benefit is awesome as you won’t need to buy a new GPU to take advantage of it.

It’s about bloody time they implemented true load balancing on the drivers. Not to mention DX12 will be backwards compatible with a dozen generation of cards already on the market, that alone is unusual given every DX update previous required hardware to be in place.
