Default Re: Crysis patch delayed until jan!!!!

I think part of the problem was that before DX10 came out there were vids of MS reps on Gamespot saying DX10 was "5 times faster than DX9" and stuff... maybe it is when it comes to effects done in SM4.0 compared to 3.0, however to the end user all those comments are very misleading.

DX10 is taking a long time to mature partly because it probably took Nvidia/ATI a long time to work out how to get good performance out of Vista's new VDDM driver model (formerly WGF 2.0)... if DX10 were just another DX9 API without any of the new baggage I think things would be quite different now.

Like CoJ... runs great in DX9 but even try to run it in DX10 and 15fps here we go
