DirectX 12 is a much needed improvement to the line. It has been four years since DX11 was released with two minor iterations in that time. We have seen the rise of extreme programmability and parallelism that requires new thinking on the software side in order to harness that type of horsepower. My guess is that DirectX 12 will improve general computing in GPUs and APUs to a great degree as compared to what we have seen with DX11 and DirectCompute. The ball has been rolling for some time, but now that the industry has seen the advances that DX12 brings to the table, I am sure it will lead to some interesting developments on both the hardware and software sides. Good times await enthusiasts of this industry."
