In Depth http://i.imgur.com/u5aCwAC.png *Subject to change based on current Windows 10 drivers support cannot go down but some features may be added or emulated on future drivers. It seems like Maxwell actually has better binding tiers than previously advertised but still inferior to GCN 1.0 even tl;dr Tier 1: INTEL Haswell e Broadwell, NVIDIA Fermi Tier 2: NVIDIA Kepler, Maxwell 1.0 and Maxwell 2.0 (Maxwell 2.0 still ahead of Kepler), Nvidia Pascal Tier 3: AMD GCN 1.0 & higher, Intel Skylake Feature level 11.0: NVIDIA Fermi, Kepler, Maxwell 1.0 Feature level 11.1: AMD GCN 1.0, INTEL Haswell and Broadwell Feature level 12.0: AMD GCN 1.1, GCN 1.2 Feature level 12.1: NVIDIA Maxwell 2.0, Nvidia Pascal, Intel Skylake & AMD GCN 1.4 DX12 Feature levels are not really relevant as long as 11.1 support or higher exists. 11.0 is most important, 11.1 is semi important but not much 12.0 not really anything and 12.1 is nothing. DX 12 feature level 11.0 is whats needed for the features we care about while all others are optional features rarely used by devs. Wikipedia article has been getting updated decently quick https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direct3D#Direct3D_12_levels Up to date thread discussion on feature levels https://forum.beyond3d.com/threads/direct3d-feature-levels-discussion.56575/page-13 If you are asking what cards support DX12 games that would be any 400 series or newer Nvidia card, Intel Haswell igpu's, AMD Radeon cards 7000 or newer. However many features will be limited on those cards they do gain most important benefits.
