    Well, I doubt it will be. If it is revolutionary for developers, then that is fine, but it probably won't become famous because of good code-ability. Also, I would image that the games would never be able to shine. I think that to an extent, the coding makes more difference than the library version. What we should hope for is mass adoption, like DirectX 9.0c.

    DX12 won't bring any major changes, game makers have still not developed full DX11 games and very few are out atm

    Nowadays many games are DX9 / DX11, like Lost Planet 2, for example... so it's possible that developers will start to code for DX11 / DX12 (ignoring Vista DX10), maybe in two years; but it's just a guess however !

    I think Win8 is more likely to be released with a DX 13 or 14. 12 will be past tech by that point (2013?).

    I think we wont see DX13 until 2014 or even 2015. I bet that Win8 will be released with DX12.

    I wonder what Microsoft was thinking when they announced this.
