    You All have to notice That AMD and MS working on New DX a long time ago.
    I think new DX will be long leap and New Games will be awesome cuz Hardware today is very powerfull.

    Fixed for u,no need to thank me. :D

    U are right,thats why DX12 is "Designed in close collaboration between Microsoft and Nvidia" .
    I really don`t get it why so many ppl that use AMD HW are so butthurt over this!

    It´s amazing what some competition can do, even from a company that´s much smaller than Microsoft!

    Thanks AMD! From a Nvidia user!

    And this is why nobody wants AMD out of the game, imagine a PC world with single core,32bit,single channel. They always force the big companies to make advancements in technology because of their innovations.

    Competition always leads to huge jumps in architectures.

    I think people need to realise 1 thing. No one is butthurt about anything because AMD, Nvidia and Microsoft are working closely together for DX12, just like DX11 and DX10.

    I genuinely had the exact same suspicions when I first started to hear about Mantle: something didn't sit right with me. It was too much of a game-changer for AMD to be the one to take the very first step. I didn't think that DirectX was getting such an awesome update, but I did suspect that by working with Microsoft and Sony on their consoles, AMD must have become aware of something quite cool that they knew would resonate within their GPU market. Now it makes sense, perfect sense!

    And wow, my GTX770 couldn't even get a the DX11.1 ready stamp of approval, but it will be fully DX12 compatible?! Incredible. I haven't heard such good news coming out of Microsoft in quite a while. I'm sure NVIDIA knew about DX12 and that's why they were not on a anti-Mantle marketing blitz, they were just sitting back enjoying the ride (and the cash AMD was wasting on it). Even I'm 100% wrong about my suspicions, at the very least it proves all of us right in one way: competition lives!

    The "cash AMD was wasting on it" will get us Mantle goodness for the following two years before the promised DX12 titles hit, and has gotten Microsoft now to budge and start taking action. You don't threaten the competition by throwing out claims, you demonstrate that you have an alternative solution. This is precisely what AMD did.

    That's the DirectX redistributable runtimes, was mostly a part of the DirectX SDK but it was discontinued in favor of the Windows (8) SDK which also includes DirectX.

    There hasn't been much need for a update though since like you said DirectX hasn't been updated much.
    (The installer is still fairly current minus the additional 11.1 and 11.2 files.)

    There was a new version (11.1) with Windows 8 and the required files are bundled with the software there (Crysis 3, Steam now since a few updates ago and some others.) and then with the update for 8.1 (11.2) the required files were already present in the system folders.
    (Why all the DirectX runtimes are not made a standard component of Windows I do not know, much like the C++ runtimes I suppose, at least .Net got integrated.)

    As long as they (nvidia) won't require new generations of GPUs to support DX12, I'm ok with it. Can't be arsed to buy a 700 or 800 series card (both beeing DX11) and then be left out when DX12 comes out. I'm fine with upgrading OS though...

    Pretty much a win win win for AMD, as first Dx12 titles won't appear until Christmas 2015, and Mantle has got about 20+ games in the works now, with more developers jumping on board as we speak, Crytek being one of them, so by the time Dx12 games come along, AMD will have a good few Mantle games giving great performance on their cards, and then when Dx12 titles appear from Christmas 2015, they'll then have those as well, plus the new consoles are all AMD. :)

    And when did MS say DirectX12 is win9 exclusive?

    I mean they modded 3dmark2011 to be dx12 compatible and ran Forza5 on dx12 by the looks of it on win 8.1.. Why wouldn't it be win8.1.x compatible as well?


    Also all this PR talking now is pretty much pointless atm, at least Mantle showed us some stuff in action, Directx12 will be just words until end 2015.

    Not impressed one bit, mostly because they should have acted sooner, not wait for ie AMD to make something and then feel threatened, hilarious :p

    So AMD started working on Mantle after discovering DirectX 12 but then was able to ship Mantle two years before Directx 12. It doesn't make any sense.

    It'll be awesome if DX12 lives up to the expectations, but damn, it's a bit extreme hyping it already if we'll get DX12 games first at the end of 2015!

    New DX and no need for new hardware that´s odd and almost historic. (Earth resources must really be at a low)
