    In 2018, GeForce RTX graphics cards launched with numerous ‘world’s first’ graphics technologies: hardware-accelerated ray tracing, Variable Rate Shading, Mesh Shading, and more. These technologies represent the biggest leap in graphics since the invention of programmable shaders in 2002, bringing cinema-quality reflections, shadows, and lighting to games.

    Now, Microsoft has announced DirectX 12 Ultimate, their new graphics API, which codifies GeForce RTX’s innovative technologies as the standard for multi-platform, next-gen games.

    I think they should have gone with XIII, the odd ones have been the good ones.

    That sounds more like Ubisoft with their Ultimate Gold editions and Year 1 Battle passes.

    SE would be something like Rise of the DirectX 12, then Shadow of the DirectX 12.
