Default Who's going to get suckered into the hype this time?

Or have you learnt your lesson from the massive con that DX10 was?

http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/...x11-amd-weapon

DX10 compatibility is pretty low on my list of graphics card requirements.

Bergman rejected the INQ's claim that only a minimal amount of game titles this year would take advantage of DX11, saying he knew of four to five ISVs working "eagerly" to churn out games and remarking he'd seen "great progress."
Names please!

they just have to flick a switch in the code and all dx10 games will run in dx11 mode which means no performance loss and all the good stuff

This was posted somewhere before...

Here it is:
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=134837

Does no one read the News Headline section? This is the second thread that has been covered there that has been introduced here as well.

It also has a much more credible link...

The problem is 99% of the DX10 games take a big performance hit from DX9 already. The only game that didnt was Far Cry 2 which had a weird stutter in DX10 so I ended up playing that in DX9 too. DX10 was just smoke, mirrors and less FPS.

Bearclaw - you aren't missing out on anything so no hurry.

The problem are multiplatform games. DX10 is must have for deferred rendering AA. Clear Sky is an example. Smoke and mirrors are possible on DX9 too

If anything DX10 was a huge marketing boost for PC games, since some people can just pull the Dx10 on others and if they don't know much they are like WTF MATES.

But yeah DX10 was a flop, Lost Planet was a game that ran really well in DX10 if I recall, not many others though. All Dx10 really means to me is that xfire in game won't probably work, game will probably run slower. :/

A lot depended on the failure of Vista. Due to bad press and whatever, it didn't become really popular. If it had been, we'd seen many more DX10 games.

Seeing how Windows 7 now is the opposite, with a lot of praise, if many gamers go for the upgrade I think DX11 might become quite popular. It does have some good features too.
