Default TWIMTBP Explained @ Bit-tech.net

I thought some of you might find this interesting. It's an interview with Roy Taylor, nVidia's Vice President of Content Relations.

http://www.bit-tech.net/bits/2007/06...twimtbp_dx10/1

Since it directly impacts gaming, I placed it here.

very interesting article

go NVIDIA!!

Quote:
He talked to us about the developer tools that Nvidia creates to help developers optimise their code, things like NVPerfHUD and FX Composer. “These tools cost Nvidia millions of dollars every year to develop and maintain. We provide them to developers for free and they even work on our competitor’s hardware.”

That’s not all that Nvidia does to support developers in the programme though, as Roy explains, “in addition to our support team and developer tools, we also have our Games Test Labs in Moscow. Here we can run any build of a game through 250 different configurations and give the developer a full report and burn-in for its game – free of charge for TWIMTBP participants.”
Quote:
In order to put Nvidia’s work into perspective, we asked Roy what his team did to help Relic convert Company of Heroes to DirectX 10. He laughed and said “Peter Young and Ignacio Llamas have practically lived at Relic’s studio for the last six months.”

“At this point, the developer has to make a decision between spending, say, ten thousand hours developing a patch that isn’t everything they want it to be, or spending that same amount of time on developing a new game that is really compelling. It’s also worth remembering that patching is free for the end user, but not for the developer, so one option is to spin an expansion pack off with DirectX 10 support – at least then there is some recuperation for the development time.”

I thought it was a very thought provoking article. World in Conflict and Crysis seem to be the 2 games to watch for. I can't wait until these are released.
