Default Direct X10????

I hear about a lot of people buying 7800GTX's, and the new 1800XT's and planning on these video cards lasting them a couple years, however won't these $500 cards be obsolete for new games in a year when Vista and Direct X10 is out?

Isn't it funny how supposedly future-proofing methods such as SLI end up?

There is not going to be a DirectX 10. It is going to be called something else.

There should probably be some sort of backwards-compatibility with DX9 though. Like with DX9, people with older cards ran games at DX8 or so.

I don't think its Part of his Ban Kai, its just his Hollow form taking over? Or is THAT part of his Ban Kai, didn't really get it.

About Direct X 10, a whole new line of cards are going to come out? Ahh I never thought of that lol, and I was planning on picking up a new card soon.

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere it's not going to be called DirectX anymore, but I could be wrong.

no it will be called directx9.0l


Quote:
DirectX 9.0l, 4.09.0000.0905. As of yet currently unreleased but this is suspected to be a Windows Vista release and will feature support for Shader Model 4.0. As it stands now, DirectX 9.0l adds an additional D3D interface.
