    Angry WHAT!?! DX 10.1 makes current DX10 cards obsolete?

    IF you believe the article in the Inquirer... ( I know I know ) The new 10.1 update to DX10 makes the current vidcards crop obsolete.

    I'm sure that its backwards compatible with dx10 but.... why on Earth would MS do that? Who would develop games with that spec? If nobody could take advantage or even use it?

    Incredible if true.

    Seems that it will be included with the upcoming SP1 for Vista.

    And it probably is true.
    Same thing happened with DX 8 and 9
    Although these 2 didnt get "revisions" till way after the market already had games based on the original versions.

    Does MS suck?Yes indeed they do more and more each time they do something like this.

    One more reason to not be an early adopter.
    And that includes Vista and high priced DX10 cards.

    Easy Zach. I would want more proof then one or two sites telling me DX10 cards will be obsolete soon. I don't think the current batch of DX10 cards will be that bad off when DX10 games come out either, but we'll have to wait and see.

    Re: WHAT!?! DX 10.1 makes current DX10 cards obsolete?

    Nah, I'm just talking about how the OP cited The Inquirer as his only source, and then everyone else except elvin jumped on the bandwagon as if this were a reliable source. Again, gullible.


    With that said, though, man, I wish it were true. This 8800 GTX I purchased is the worst piece of junk I have ever spent so much money on thanks to the lack of decent drivers. DX10 is apparently over the heads of nVidia's devs, so maybe a fresh start is not a bad idea, eh?

    I have run test demo on dx10 games which we all know they are NOT put out with everything we want to see,even more stable or bugs will be there.Thats why is a demo.Even with that i'v ran the games at there max setting and have hold a 50ish fps with max setting allowed so how is it that dx10 is bad or that 8800 card are bad.I would agree on driver issue but this is history repeating itself new card, new graphic,new drivers.Don't you just love it.

    In a customer view and manufacture which both have stated on dx10 cards.nvidia or ati would be screaming out loud not praising a report of making current cards not usable with dx10.1,which reminds me who makes dx part for games and is trying to sell os with the ability to use it.

    Ive said this before and Ill say it again,Im positive that current DX 10 performance issues are a software issue and can be adressed through drivers and or new DX revisions.
    I mean just look at the specs of a DX 10 card on paper,they are MONSTERS.

    I am not trying to get off topic but game content is more of an issue to me. There are few games out there with decent content. DX9 graphics look great anyways.
    All the same I will be pissed if I bought these cards and they are useless. I am not saying I believe it to be true or not. Lets hope thats not the case.

    The high-end cards specs on paper do make them 'monsters', but this most certainly is simply not true for the 8600- and X2600-lines of cards. And this does not have anything to do with software.

    Umm I was talking about the 8800s on paper....
    Plz dont insult my intelligence like that,I already know the mid range cards arent as good as they should have.And besides if you read my post you would realize im talking about DX 10 performance not DX 9
