    The first game to use DX12 is Ashes of the Singularity an RTS based game. Testing shows that DX12 does improve performance although it varies depending on choice of card:

    Dx12 runs far better on the AMD cards than Dx11 does so they will see the most benefit in this instance. Other games (depending who's backing them) may show different results. Read the article here.

    Ugh. Guess I'll have to wait a bit to see a dx12 title I'd actually play. Tried strategy games more than once, and they're just not my thing.

    EDIT: It sure looks like it will be graphics-intensive. 42-48fps with an 6700k/980 @ 1600p; I might get 60fps with my 6700k/980ti @ 1440p.

    You could well do at that.. The Ti is in some instances almost 30% faster than the normal 980 so you probably might well see 60fps. I just had to buy a Ti too. A total beast of a card!!

    That's why I'm getting the 2 R9 380X's instead of the GTX 960's. The new AMD card beat's NVIDIA'S in every benchmark. It wasn't too far below the GTX 970's either, comparing they cost $100.00 more.

    I prefer single card set ups personally hence my purchase but in any case DX12 is looking amazing!

    Yeah, I prefer single cards, too. Problem is with the only ones I can afford, it's better getting 2 of them. As far as AMD beating NVIDIA in dx 12, that will definitely change when they introduce new cards.
