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

Look here to find this "ATI Crusader" spending over 1500$ on Nvidia hardware:

And look here to find this "ATI Crusader" trading in his 2900XT for an 8800 Ultra just last year:

And look here to find this "ATI Crusader" telling guys within the last few weeks to go with an Nvidia card over ATI's current offering depending upon their needs:

Alright, now that we got that bull$#&@ out of the way...

There is a difference between DX10.1 games being available now (which is pretty much next to nothing at the moment) vs what might be in the works in the future.
What you think makes a "difference" doesn't matter one iota, because that's not what Rollo said. He said developer support was lacking because there wasn't a "single DX10.1 game" on the radar, which is incorrect. There are some in development, and the developers on each project give very positive feedback about the benefits of 10.1.

At the moment, and probably in the future too, we aren't going to see DX10.1 get any traction. Period. End of story.
Yes, because Nvidia didn't support it. Which was my point. Thanks again for clarifying it.

Where does the guy from MSFT say anything about DX10.1?
Are you blind? Read the first sentence of his quote again:

We welcome AMD’s broad support for DirectX 10.1 compliant hardware and we’re pleased to see our newest technology brought to market so soon.

How could that be any MORE clear?

Thumbs down to your overdefensive rant. You'd better bring something better than that next time.
