Its not 9.0D.I downloaded and the full redistibutal version, installed and wasnt even prompted to reboot.Rebooted anyway, ran dxdiag, and low and behold 9.0c

i was all excited to maybe get a boost of peformance with 9.0d and possible new drivers for the my 8800gtx.

You probably won't. DirectX 8 pixel shader effects are the only thing I ever noticed from a new version of directX, but that required new drivers, new games and new video cards to be noticeable. Other than that, there isn't a single thing I've ever noticed from a DirectX upgrade.

Still, I keep up to date... :p

There is no DirectX 9d! Where did you get that from??..roflmao...To my knowledge, MS isn't patching or putting out 'any' new version of DirectX 9 period because they want people to go to Vista. If you want DirectX9d, then get Vista.. that is the new patched DirectX, now called, DirectX 10.

Ran some benchmarks with cs:s no improvements, running bf2142 and haven't notice any improvements.

Sounds like their just bug fixes or shader fixes in some games. I didn't notice anything either.

Someone should update this message title to accurately reflect that this is *not* DirectX 9.0d.

Someone post a link to 9.0d then, because it IS out. as of Nov. 11 (or earlier)

that game came out on Steam on Nov.11, 2008 and has DirectX 9.0d INCLUDED WITH THE GAME! So it's bound to be available somewhere on the internet

C and D are right next to each other. Both in the keyboard and in the alphabet. Very curious indeed. Probably means StarCraft 2 and Diablo 3 have been canceled and Episode 3 will have you playing as Adrian Shepard.
