DX12 isn't really up to them :P. Microsoft hasn't officially announced DX12 AFAIK, and in fact, with Windows 8, they'll be merely introducing 11.1.

Clay, I hope you didn't think that I thought that AMD/ATi made DirectX, LOL. I was merely stating that I'm ready for new generation stuff since the market has been flooded with 68xx and 69xx variations, and hardly anything from nVidia.

The 28nm cards from both AMD and nVidia are supposedly delayed until next year, but I want 'em now!
