DirectX 12 Will Be Revealed At GDC
Back in 2008, Microsoft debuted their new DirectX API, DirectX 11, and ushered in a new generation for development tools and, more importantly, visual enhancements. It was a massive step up from DirectX 10, and now Microsoft is ready to make a similar, if not larger, leap.
On March 20th, Microsoft will reveal DirectX 12 at the Game Developers Conference.

Anuj Gosalia, Windows graphics development manager at Microsoft will present the new API, although no more details have been revealed. Microsoft did tease that the new API will provide better tools for developers, added performance and support for a host of new devices, including tablets, phones and PC’s.
DirectX 11 brought about visual features such as Tessellation and HBAO, something that console gamers have only just experienced with new consoles. It will be interesting to see what DirectX 12 brings to the table in a few months, and how long it takes for compatible graphics cards to hit the market.
Sorry console gamers, your hardware has just become a little more out-dated. Prepare for the Master Race to gloat for months to come.
