    So I just grab my GTX 760 Ti few months back.it's a Dx11 GPU and I have test it run on 10 technical preview and it work nice with 8.1 driver.

    Still I'm concern since dx12 coming soon. I know windows 10 driver will be around anytime soon but dx11 GPU may not able to take full advantage of dx12.

    In your opinion is dx12 GPU coming soon or dx11GPU work just fine

    I doubt it will take advantage of everything DirectX 12 offers, but it should be a worthwhile upgrade.

    ​We really have no clue, to be honest. Seriously, I always say expect the worst instead of setting high expectations.

    There will be DX12 specific features. However, we don't even know WHAT those will be. Considering DX12 will be out in the next 6 months, the fact that we still don't know what those specifics will be is pretty telling they won't be that important.

    The main benefits of DX12 is better use of multicores and parallel processing. You'll get much of that benefit with your DX11 gpu. Don't worry.

    I felt I should follow this up with something I ended up getting linked to:

    In addition, NVIDIA will match Microsoft OS support for DX12. Over 70% of gaming PCs are now DX11 based. NVIDIA will support the DX12 API on all the DX11-class GPUs it has shipped; these belong to the Fermi, Kepler and Maxwell architectural families. With more than 50% market share (65% for discrete graphics) among DX11-based gaming systems, NVIDIA alone will provide game developers the majority of the potential installed base. - See more at: DirectX 12: A Major Stride for Gaming | The Official NVIDIA Blog

    DX 12 will not require new hardware.
