    Ofc it does. As Sptets said when the "final" version of Win 10 is out Nvidia will push proper and needed drivers for full support of dx12.

    Cheers.

    According to MS only DX12 cards with support on HW level will have all of the DX12 features. AFAIK, 900 have only software support for DX12.

    The 900 series is supposed to have feature level support for 11.3 and 12.0 but as far as I know, only the former has been confirmed as of yet. It's a relatively safe bet to assume they have full 12.0 support because of that though, currently the only cards to do so. The newest January build of Windows 10 Technical Preview now also features DX12 but no driver support from Nvidia as of yet.

    Not 100% full support, but it will support most features.

    We’re more than ready. GPUs built on our Maxwell GPU architecture – such as our recently released GeForce GTX 970 and GeForce GTX 980 – fully support DX12.

    I assume that if it wasn't, putting "Direct X 12" on the box of my MSI 970 would be misadvertising.

    Either way, NVIDIA already said that GPUs from Fermi and up will support DX12. Degree of support is unknown, but i assume that Maxwells can be safely called HW level support.

    Yeah, i think only maxwell will have that full support or what will mean, and lower cards, only some sort of support for dx12.

    why ? cuz marketing

    They have confirmed that our cards all the way back to Fermi will fully support and play DX12 games. I believe they have yet to say whether or not the cards will support every software and hardware feature of the final DX12 spec. I hope it can all be done through software with our current cards, but I expect the next line from AMD/Nvidia will have more robust support for DX12.

    More feature levels for maxwell, less for older cards, simple as that.

    Don't get your hopes up before all is known. Their marketing team can always go back on that part and say they just meant Maxwell supports the DX12 API.


    By the way, was it such a hype back when it was revealed DX10 cards would get support for the DX11 API?

    No i am sure maxwell will bring full support for dx12, nvidia has one more maxwell card to show, the big one GM200, probably released in 2015 winter or fall. And windows 10 by then will be almost around the corner, when windows 10 will be released, probably nvidia will still have the maxwell cards as, latest architecture, so...

    Well, i guess they can just split Maxwells by generations and state that only newest (around w10 release) generation has full HW support.

    To claim "full support" when the API hasn't been finalized is misleading. At this point though, there's no reason to worry about DX12 support. We're still several months off from launch. If DX12 support is a requirement at this point, you're best off waiting to buy a new graphics card until next generation.
