As usual, 2K Games are not going to miss the occasion to please basketball fans and so quite naturally NBA 2K12 is now available on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC. This year's edition is even more packed with content than 2K11, with a good number of game modes to choose from, the best commentary ever in a sports game and superb animations. Add to that the presence of even more classic teams from the past, with basketball greats such as Jordan, Magic Johnson, Bird, Abdul-Jabbar or Olajuwon to name but a few. To match the time period of the game, you will sometimes play in black and white or with washed-out colors, which makes the overall presentation even better. So unless you hate basketball, there really is no reason to miss on this one.
The point was, nvidia (and ms) seems to be pushing to put this tech on the marked and and adopted within a year or two, and not just putting out a paper about possible gpu/api directions in the future (13 minutes ago)

@Melmoth: I don't know who it was here, but my message was for him. He thought that games using this tech would be released this year. Also nVidia hinted at it, but they meant that it might help... (1 Hour ago)
as for generational jump in performance. i think for nvidia it's been about 1.5-1.7x increase the last 4-5 gens. with the pascal cards (10 series) being around 1.7x performance of maxwell (900series) (2 Hours ago)
