"there will be no DirectX 12. That's it. "
Last January there was another hint that things weren't fine with DirectX when Microsoft sent an email to its MVPs that said http://games.slashdot.org/story/13/02/01/0245208/microsoft-phases-out-xna-and-directx:
"DirectX is no longer evolving as a technology."
Which was quickly corrected but without mentioning any prospect of DirectX 12.
So is it just another error or rumor? Can you dismiss something that AMD are basing their future marketing strategy on?
