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

I was just assuming that NVIDIA would have already added Direct X 10.01 revision to their flagship products like with the NVIDIA 260/280 lineup. Windows 7 could end up being delayed again like with Windows Vista. Direct X 11 might not even surface until late 2010 or 2011 And if it's anything like it was from Direct X 9c to Direct X 10 then it's nothing more then marketing hype. I don't think anyone was that impressed with Direct X 10 when it came out. The only thing I think looked cool in direct x 10 was the water effects in Bios Shock.
