I'm willing to bet that will be mentioned at least.

Direct x11 has been out for ages and well, games don't look and run much better either
Indeed, you're right, hadn't upgraded for over 2 years but then I did Feb with the intentions of SLI later in the year or the year after, no real need for SLI a new GPU should keep me for a good few years delivering the performance I want, I'm just being greedy biggrin.gif lol
My next real upgrade will probably be R9 4-5xx or Nvidia's 9xx

Indeed, it shall be interesting, 11's been around for quite awhile honestly.

Good bye win 7 lol I can sense Microsoft wanna kill this OS off soo badly.

Windows 7 still going strong, 8 didnt bring to the table anything special imo, not for my usage anyway, hopefully the next iteration, possibly 9 will.

Developers willing to use it. Market share. Microsoft's money.

I know it's not what you meant but that's where the really important difference is in this case.

I know that OpenGL can do everything that DX can do, but isn't DX more well documented?

Why does AMD care about DX12 now that they have released mantle?

I think it's more interesting why Qualcomm is attending.

competition...

Many of us have speculated from the beginning that this would happen. Microsoft would have never moved to greatly improve Direct X without competition. Now that AMD is actually posing a minor threat, MS & NVidia are teaming up to take DirectX to the next level.

This is good news for everyone, as every game comes with DirectX support, where as only a tiny % of games are planned to support Mantle.

Just to get this out of the way. I. AM. NOT. BASHING. MANTLE. I'm simply stating the obvious. It's going to take mantle years to mature, & permeate the market, where as MS could have this ready to go within a year.

I think MS mostly team up with AMD. Dont forget they develop together, the last years ,the API for xbox.
