Yes that is how it is going to look on unsupported cards.

But from what M$ is saying Vista will only support DX10 which is still in development and the hardware that can handle it wont be out till around the same time as Vista.

So i wouldnt go out and buy a new Video Card just yet. Not until a few details get totally cleared up on the whole DX9-DX10 issues.

Those are some of my old screenshots of Vista build 5231. That is how Vista looks with the Glass Effect active.

Those are the same cards that were originally supported by nVidia and the ones that are supported by the newest driver that was released for the Feb CTP.

What do you mean by originally? Many old cards are missing. No geforce 1-4, no TNT's.

There were Beta Drivers released by nVidia back in July of 2005 when Beta 1 of Vista hit. They had the same cards supported back then as they do now.

Basically if your card is not DX9 (note i dont mean DX9 compatable) then you probably wont be able to get the "Glass Effects" without some kinda workaround.

I was able to find the workaround for build 5231. There was a registry hack that i did. There are ways to get the glass effects to work on some non-supported cards. I just dont know them all off hand.

someone will probably create a patch to enable glass on old cards shortly after vista comes out.
