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

It doesn't really matter. Developers cannot code for DX11 until the API is released to the public.

So if DX10.1 is already available (which it has been as developers are already working with it) then it has a good head start on DX11, obviously.

dx11 hardware will be also compatible with dx10.1
My worry is that the recent GT350 rumor could be true and they'll skip DX10.1 and DX11 altogether. Despite whether or not ATI supports it, Nvidia is a big influence on developers.

Hoping that doesn't happen. I honestly don't think it will. It would be pretty &$&@^ of Nvidia to withhold performance increases from a large crowd just because they didn't want to support it with hardware. They've already delayed its implementation with their current-gen lineup. I mean, hell.. ATI has supported it since last gen. It's time for Nvidia to do the same so that we can all benefit from the performance enhancements.
