Talking DirectX 9 FINAL

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en

Enjoy.

For those with ATI Radeon 9500/9700 based graphics cards, I would like to see some feedback.

The download you requested is unavailable. If you continue to see this message when trying to access this download, you might try the "Search for a Download" area on the Download Center home page.

This is the message I recived when I clicked on your link.

Direct X 9 RC 0 Public Beta is available but not a final release.

It works fine here, as of right now, plus the final was released yesterday.

Direct link for those who still get a 404:

Hmm... the beta worked fine for me - even in 3dMark, where many people complained of problems.. I've reformatted since, though, and I probably won't bother with DX9 'til I get a video card/game that can use it...

I downloaded Direct X 9 on my self-built machine that has an ATI Radieon 64Mb DDR and performance has slighly increased in Quake III Arena.

DirectX 9 would probably impact nothing on your machine, but probably fix some problems as well as give you a couple extra fps in some games.
