More about when direct game
  1. Next year. Well after Vista's release.
  2. I think Bioshock will be one of the first. Alan Wake is scheduled to come out soon too.

    Company of Heros is also supposed to get a DX10 patch soon.

    But who knows. Count on Flight Sim X to be the first DX10 game.
  3. Supreme Commander will also take advantage of DX10 as well. No firm date yet, but sometime in H1 2007.
  4. CANT WAIT FOR CRYSIS. MAN OH MAN. NOW ALL WE NEED IS A MODERN JEDI KNIGHT Game and quake wars to come out. :P
  5. Quake Wars is still down as May 2007 I think - I'm just waiting for it to be delayed once again....

    Crysis has already slipped again to September...
  6. Anyone heard about that upcoming PC game, Armed Assault? Does it supports DX10? And Crysis, that game will be a long wait.

    The premise of Alan Wake intrigues me. While I'm sure Alan Wake will have a DX 9.0c legacy mode, for those without a DX10 card, what is interesting is that it's not just multithreaded, but will require a dual core.
  8. Yeah, Alan Wake will be the first game to require dual core. I read that the game will be running 5 threads on it's own. I assume one thread for AI, sound, physics, graphics and not sure about the last one.

    I'm pretty sure all games for the next 2 years (at least) will be DX9/DX10 hybrids. Support for DX9 probably will not be dropped until MS publicly states it plans to roll out DX11 within a year or so. DX8.1 survived until this year.

    I hadn't heard that DX11 would come out so soon after DX10, perhaps they'll delay it because Vista delayed DX10? I'd also expect more of the incremental improvements we'd seen with DX9 for a few years.

    Still using an AIW Radeon 9800 Pro, but planning on getting an X1950 Pro AGP by mid February. Then, I'll think about that dual core that Alan Wake will require.

    Funny, the message board links an outdated card like the Radeon 9800 Pro, but not the newer X1950 Pro. Is this proof that ATI and Nvidia make most of their money with older card sales?
  10. To clarify, when MS thinks DX11 has been developed to the point where they can release it within a year, then DX9 support will begin to drop.

    I'm guessing MS will not even announce DX11 until at least the middle of 2009.
  11. Good Ole MS is already announcing the Direct x 10.1 update.
  12. Crysis is supposed to be INSANE!!! check out the trailers and look at the clarity of the game. its godly.
  13. If it ain't updated (every 6 months), it ain't Microsoft! :D

    Too bad Halo 2 Vista won't be DX10, though I suppose it would be a tall order to re-write the entire game using a new API.

    Crysis interests me, I like the island premise (see wiki article for traces of plot and setting). I wonder if we'll see draw distances and clarity of Oblivion's scale (saw those nice screenshots).
  14. Halo has to be DX10, otherwise u wouldnt need Vista to play it.. and u do.
    Moreover, they did create a lot of the game from scratch. The reason it took 3 years to get it to a PC isnt just that Microsoft wanted to raise Xbox sells.

    Alan wake isnt going to need a dual core, and if u had a dual core it wouldnt have 5 threads, but only 2, or 4 with HT. Also, u dont need a core/thread for Sound.. it dosent take that much. And even if u did, most ppl buy sound cards anyway.
    It is rumored that Alan Wake will be able to utilize a Quad-Core CPU, probably because Intel and AMD paid them to incorporate it, so that it wouldnt be COMPLETELY useless.
  15. when is dx10 comming out for XP, thats what i want to know, cause i dont think vista will be worth it for the first year
  16. DX10 is NOT "coming out" for XP. DX10 will only be for Vista.

    You can still play DX10 games in XP but you will not get the same eye candy as you will get playing it in Vista.

    Halo 2 will release built on DirectX 9 (no DX 10 support), look here (scroll down about 1/4 of the way). Halos 1 and 2 were designed for the Xbox, through and through, a console which is DirectX 9 based. The first two Halos are thus DirectX 9 based. Recoding the second one to be DX 10 capable is not an investment of time or money Microsoft or Bungie (Halo's developer) are ready to make. I'm guessing the Vista exclusive release is to boost Vista sales. Sorry that I'm cynical, but it would be a good marketing strategy, and it's the only other reason why it would be Vista only (they could be trying to integrate Windows Live crap into multiplayer, but who really needs that?).

  19. Oops! You're right, it is DX 8. Doesn't change much though. Thanks for the heads up.
