This is what Nintendo needs in their next console
DX12 replaces the need for NVIDIA, AMD, Intel, Qualcomm to write their own parallel computing technology so it makes sense that it is no longer being designed. The goal is that developers can write code against DX12 that will be processed in parallel regardless of the GPU vender/model.
It's ridiculous how fast mobile GPUs are getting. I wouldn't at all be surprised if we had tablets that can out-spec current gen consoles in a few years.
For me it's still laptops, not tablets, that gets me excited with these recent development in computing. Tablets that are equal or better than consoles would still be extremely limited if they are still bound by the touch interface. Laptops is neatly tucked between the sheer power of a PC and the portability of a tablet so there should be some interesting configuration to come out of it.
