DirectX 11 announced by MS


Recommended Posts

as rumoured, Microsoft have officially announced DirectX 11 at the Gamefest 2008 game conference which took place in Seattle, Washington

the major scheduled features including GPGPU support, tesselation support, and improved multi-threading support to assist video game developers in developing games that better utilize multi-core processors.

DirectX 11 will run on Windows Vista and its successor Windows 7.

Unlike DirectX 10 it will not require new graphics card hardware specifically supporting the new API version, and will support both DirectX 10 and DirectX 10.1 hardware.

you can read more about it in the articles below:

Kind of makes me wonder if DX10 and 10.1 are going to be ignored until 11 is out, even if it is a year or so down the line.

We're still seeing DX9 improvements now -- still saw 8 improvements for quite some time after 9 came out. And 7, for a while after 8...

this happens every few years, relax.

Funny, there are like, just over 10 games that support DX10 and they are announcing DX11?

Anyways, the next "service pack" version of Vista will likely be Windows 7. :shifty:
