    You will get DirectX 12 if your hardware compatibility with it

    Not true, my 660 Ti does not have a feature set of DX12, but my runtime version is still DX12.

    Go here, select your version of Win 10 from the drop down menu (top), download & install the latest Win 10 beta driver.

    You'll need a modern graphics card to take advantage of DX12.
