    Yay. And there's like what, less than 1% of games are "CPU Bound"? But good to see Win 10 is a free upgrade from Win 7 and 8.1!

    Dammit, it looks like once again I'm left out in the cold...
    At least I will be able to upgrade OS free of charge... Yay!

    They want to put as much distance between Windows 8 and Windows 10, but I feel like down the line they will put out DX12 support on Windows 8 (didn't they do something similar with DX11, at first Windows 7 was not supporting it, if I am not mistaken?)

    Its dissappointing that DX12 won't make it to Win7, Micro$lop is being greedy...Win7 enjoyed only one DX version while the XP had 2 :(
    If the UEFI Class 3 + Win10 makes it into new NBs then game over ...:rolleyes:

    Test The Impact Of DirectX 12 On PC Gaming With Upcoming 3DMark Update - Forbes

    Nope, DX11 was included with Windows 7 at release and added to Vista a week later.

    I agree, although the free offer does soften the blow somewhat.

    I really don't mind as the upgrade is entirely free. Now if it weren't that'd be a different story...

    But it is :)

    Yep, time for everyone on 7,8,8.1 to leave them behind.

    You'd have to pry Windows 7 from my cold, dead hands.
