Indeed. Rap's silence confirms it!!
But most likely in a way that costs much more rendering power, thus FPS?Nvidia supports 3/4 of Dx10.1, only failing on the AA+Defferred rendering support.
However, as Psxauthor will validate, there are ways to do this even on Dx9 hardware, should you know what you're doing.
Roger.Guys, there's 7 off topic posts in a row, while the OP's question hasn't been fully answered yet (at least he didn't let us know, so), please keep that in the Burnout thread
Not necessarily? If what I think is right... then it might not cost that much. What MS is doing, basically, might just be implementing their own optimized versions of some codes over the old foundations. In other words... something like an extension or implementation of what had already been there the entire time. They do have the time and resources to research something like that, after all.But most likely in a way that costs much more rendering power, thus FPS?
Yeah... but with current developers' attitudes towards these new technologies, and considering how short-lived DX10 had been, I don't think that would happen. Ahh... if only we had more DX10 games, maybe they would have invested more time in DX10.Just how ATi cards can cut corners with the AA implemention of DX10.1, thus reaching higher FPS, which nVidia didn't really like in "their" Assassin's Creed? I don't think that these new features are completely worthless. It's just a case of wishing that your GPU will still be fast enough by the time these DX11 and DX10.1 features will be implemented widespread in games.
Mmm... W7...Ironically, it's stilll irrelevant, since I'm on Windows XP. I plan to make the switch with W7.
Mm... last I heard it wouldn't have that cap, so you can run as much as you want. I mean... otherwise, my XP Home install on my Eee would still pwn them? ;p I know they wouldn't let that happen.That one will have a 3 applications limit of what can run at the same time. If I look at my taskbar, that's not going to work. Sound + mouse + wireless, and then I still need my game to start. Where the heck am I going to fit Daemon Tools in?
Nah, Far Cry 2 DX10.1 was a rumor. And there are a few stuffs that run pretty cool in DX10.1. The latest ATi demos and Assassin's Creed for instance.DX10.1 is just supposed to do DX10 slightly faster, however whereas PhysX is rare, DX10.1 is non-existant, the only major release I know of that used it was Far Cry 2...and it actually had support for it patched out lol.
Depends on the hardware.Also DX10 is far from a dud, Assasins Creed and Far Cry 2 proved that. Far Cry 2 runs MUCH smoother than on DX10 than DX9.
Yep. That's true. ;D Windows 7 still couldn't deliver it, which makes me kinda think that developers are being lazy about their DX10 implementations.Usually it's the DX10 version running better than the DX9 version on Vista, yet the DX9 on XP owns them both.
