Same here, archaic API's like DX11 are holding PC back badly..

It's not unreasonable to expect every major title going forward, to offer both dx 11 and 12 paths, so yeah I suspect it will be.

Gamers Nexus decided make a hybrid RX480 and he was successful in doing that temp-wise. However, the overclocking gain was less than desirable.

Maby it has been posted already, but it's hard to keep up on these threads.....

The stock gpu really isnt meant to be oc'd. The price of the card for the performance should give people some clue on the quality of the card. Its plug & play. The card just gets too hot too fast for any worthwhile oc. We need to wait for the aftermarket variant for solid oc numbers.

DX12 was release in july 2015. I'd say the adoption rate is miles away from DX11. In fact, i still remember getting DX11 patches in 2015 (DX11 luanched in 2011).

By the time DX12 is mainstream both Pascal and Polaris/Vega will be EOL. Its pointless and futile to buy something based on how it will perform 2-3 years in the future, just buy for the now.

It's not really 2-3 years though is it?

Almost all of the biggest games left to be released this year are DX12. Lets be real for a second, the games we all want DX12 support for are the tripple-A's, and almost all of them are going to be using it in the future.

It doesn't matter if AMD cards "lose" in the smaller games that still use DX11 if those AMD cards still get 100+ fps in them..

Games are already out and taking advantage of DX12 and one of the next biggest games (BF1) will have it too... and being that it's being pushed way harder than dx10 or 11 was I'd say taking DX12 results into strong consideration is wise at this point. Not every one upgrades at every new gpu release...

One important thing to take away from that for those that don't fully read articles (unfortunately quite a few)..

We are already testing a driver that implements a fix, and we will provide an update to the community on our progress on Tuesday (July 5, 2016)

Let's see if this hampers performance.
