This programmer carried forth his implementation to DX9, which is the leanest and fastest version of DX yet.
Unfortunately for Microsoft, this programmer is now working at ATI.
Heh... i had forgotten about that.

Its not only Artx that has Brought ATi to the Forefront today. Philip Taylor is a Key addition oh about a year or so ago. The Chief DX Architect responsible for Dx8 and Dx9 is now one of the Senior Engineers at Ati.

That is pretty Heavily stacking the deck in favor of ATi.

Is it any wonder Ati nailed DX9 support? Or Got the Xbox2 deal?
