oh duh, EDIT - it says in my advanced graphics the renderer is Dx9. And again I don't have the preview, but I'm glad it at least says Dx9 now.
It likely won't make any difference in the current Prophecies campaign, I think all the new material is slated for the expansion only. That said, I and a couple other people have found performance a little smoother after they upgraded the rendering engine.

I fiind it very encouraging that they have applied pretty nice upgrades to the sound and video engine in the last few weeks.
