Nothing beats speculating on a product that hasn't been released yet; often it ends up being more fun than the release.  Currently DX12 is providing great fodder for enthusiasts, especially when the comparison to Mantle is broached in conversation.  The Tech Report is looking to pass some ammunition on to online prognosticators by fleshing out the debate with some history and a review of what was announced and what has been stated since.  One of their biggest secondary sources of information is Matt Sandy's Blog, as a DX Developer he is a knowledgeable source about the new API, in as far as he is allowed to speak on it.  Check out the three page post here for a good resource of what we know for now.

Thanks Jeremey for the link to the 3 posts on the DirectX 12. I am new to this and it really does help to get right to the information. Do you have any other ideas how it might differ from directX 11? thanks
