People here act like it's somebody fabricating stuff, but the level of support of currently available AMD cards is confirmed by AMD.
But of course we don't know about the about to be released new card.

Anyway the german site has a nice table: http://www.computerbase.de/2015-06/directx-12-amd-radeon-feature-level-12-0-gcn/
Again, feature level 12.1 does not coincide with an imaginary “full/complete DirectX 12 support” since it does not cover many important or secondary features exposed by Direct3D 12

Microsoft allocated a lecture on Resource Binding tier levels during GDC 2015.

Everyone should just relax, and wait for actual games to get released with said technologies.

By then we are looking at Pascal, if not later, and this whole discussion is moot anyway.

Bottom line: 2015 is the worst year in a decade to be buying a new GPU (end of 28nm / beginning of a double node size reduction, beginning of new featuresets, stagnating performance levels). Yes, Maxwell buyers, you too. That also puts AMD"s second/third rebrand in a whole other light.

i predict most if not all dx12 games will be multi level dx like how some dx11 games will let you run 10 or 9 but its not experiencing the game at its best so i would imagine that it will be much the same way. if you have a dx12.0 capable gpu and playing a dx12 game but on windows 7-8.1 your not going to get the improved rendering capability and cpu overhead as if you had windows 10.
i have little to no doubt that windows 10 and dx12 capability will soon be the must have for power users and gamers. getting a lot of companies to upgrade though may be a different story.. just getting the majority to drop xp took support ending and becoming a security risk.
