I tend to think its a bit of marketing to get people to upgrade. I have not noticed any difference in my gamming at all with direct x12.However I have noticed a difference say from my gtx690 to my gtx 980ti being the difference in the amount off vram that the card has .Moving forward in technology is unescapable and is not a bad thing, but moving forward for the sake of lining someone else's pockets and for advertised hype is another story. I personally don't think direct x12 is complicated, what becomes complicated is when people think they need it. I am all for the quality of my games being audio,video and performance but what with HDMI combined with 4k and the actual hardware we use, it takes care of itself. I have not even noticed the difference between gen2 and gen3. Some others might have. but personally I have gave up trying to find which is better and to add to that it has saved me a lot of money. These days what with the set up I have I only move forward if a component dies on me and I am forced to upgrade to reach a certain type of level in my gaming and if it comes with direct x12 then i'll take it as a bonus but not for something that I think I need.
