DirectX 12 announced

...with next version of Direct3D with better performance

On the DirectX Developer Blog, Microsoft just announced DirectX 12. It includes a newly designed Direct3D, the 3D graphics rendering API, which promises a much better performance, by removing a lot of abstraction overhead, making it possible for programmers to more directly access the underlying hardware.
