DirectX 12 VS DirectX 11 Performance

Looking at DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 performance in Battlefield 1 it is obvious that each implementation is only intended to be used with specific GPUs. With Nvidia Pascal and older Maxwell Based GPUs battlefield 1 always performs best in DirectX 11 and with AMD's Polaris and GCN-based GPUs DirectX 12 offers superior framerates. 

In short Nvidia users should avoid using DirectX 12, as it does not offer any additional performance. AMD users, on the other hand, should always use DirectX 12 if they own a compatible GPU, as all the AMD GPUs that we have tested offer higher levels of performance. 

DirectX 12 may offer better performance than DirectX 11 in multi-GPU setups, but sadly at this time we do not have two matching GPUs to test SLI and Crossfire performance.

Just out of curiosity, would VRAM consumption change between DX11 and DX12 if all settings are the same?Quote

More evidence that a game can look groundbreaking without being gpu breaking.

Developers take note.Quote

Nice review Mark and interesting to hear that it's better than BF4's launch, but would you say it's better than BF4's current state?Quote

There are reports of hugely excessive CPU load bugs... (Only in MP matches)
Like 90-100% CPU usage (Dropping GPU usages) on Beast Rigs, no matter what settings used...

CPU testings need to be done before I buy it...Quote
