Post Revealing The Power of DirectX 11

AnandTech: Revealing The Power of DirectX 11

A complex, everything you need to know, and elaborate article talking about the DirectX11 API in Windows 7 and Windows Vista. These pictures from the article provides a basic structure or idea of DX11. A worthy read if your curious to what's new in DX11 API structure compared to DX10/10.1:





















i kept the OpenGL and CL pics out because it doesnt make sense if u look at it really, just need to read about it.

Not too much of an engine rework. Should be fairly easy to learn the new concepts. A lot more in this is going to be changed than DX9 to DX10 however.

Dx11 should be the standard for quite some time before they release a new version. But dx9 is getting quite old and upgrading to Window 7 is a good choice since I've been using XP since it came out.

How long has dx10 been out. How many people actually use it compared to slackers still using dx9. It might be out in 2010, but i'm saying its a good 2-3 years away from having any type of widespread adoption.
