I am absolutely gutted about this. I found another one of these cards to crossfire these as the initial direct x 12 support stated it was going to support the 6XXX series thinking I would get a boost. as the only game I cannot play is Arkham Knight even after the patch. Looks like I am going to need a new card but I wont be going down the AMD route sorry you have lost a customer because of this.
Where did you see the 6000 series was going to be DX12 compatible?
