Listener mail

DX12? - from Mark:

"With DirectX 12 around the corner, I've started seeing mentions of "tier 2" and "tier 3" support and confusion about which DX12 features each GPU vendors current and upcoming products will support. Can you shed some light on what the tier levels are and what they mean? Is there a tier 1 too and does any of it relate to DX11.2? Regarding features, will all current products be DX11.2 capable only, give partial DX12 support, or with future drivers support the full DX12 feature set with perhaps a performance hit for the privilege? Love the podcast, especially Scott's long musings. Keep up the great work."
