Default Re: Why did NVIDIA skip the revision of Direct X 10.01 on their 9800 GTX/GX2/GTX 260/

Or perhaps developers simply aren't very interested in DX10.1, as evidenced by the lack of a single DX10.1 game. (not like NVIDIA controls what version of DX devs use)

MS themselves said DX10.1 was not very important:

I think NVIDIA and most devs will jump straight to DX11, and DX10.1 will end up being utilized by a couple games. The only games I've ever seen noting upcoming 10.1 support are a 4 or 5 RTS games, and some of them might end up being DX11.
