    This news is months old and it won't matter. Hardware is hardware. NVIDIA will optimize in due time, when it actually makes sense for games and not benchmarks, and even then they won't care. Their GTX 970 dominated the enthusiast end this generation and their GTX 750/750 Ti dominated the budget rigs and those slotting in cards to add casual gaming performance to pre-built AIO or office builds.

    Their focus for DX12 will undoubtedly be for their next generation of GPU's.

    That's a pretty significant difference.

    This is really a non story. Those are benches from one game that isn't even out, that could be fixed with drivers. Almost no games are using it yet and the list of games coming down the pipe with it are still super small. By the time it's relevant the 980ti and Fury X won't be anymore

    From what I've read, the advantage nvidia had in dx11 was due to a large driver and optimization budget for each title. DX12 puts AMD and NVIDIA on a level playing field.

    With DX 12, essentially every game will run similar to the level of MANTLE.

    Either way the consumer wins. DX12 + 14nm finfit should lead to some huge improvements in the next couple of years.

    The interesting thing is that if the developers of this game are right dx12 rendering performance and gpgpu compute performance might be more directly related in the future, which would be a great bonus as someone who does 3d rendering and video editing and stuff in applications that take advantage of cuda and opencl, because AMD have generally been better there since the nvida 5xx series or so.
