DirectX 12 in Tomb Raider

  1. According to the steam page, Tomb Raider is to support DX12. Anyone know whats up with this? There are no DX12 cards that I know of... PS4? XBOX720?

    LOL. Even though that's true, what GPU will support such technology? Weird. :eek:

    Typo. The line above mentions DX11 GPU.

    Funny that they mention HD4870, as it's not a DX11 card. And the AMD CPU listed isn't quad-core. The person writing this must be new.

    I suppose it was a typo... but now that I look at it, there may be some smiley face typos, too. So who knows at this point, right?
