Whats the deal with DX10.1 anyway, none of the cards today could even maxed DX10.0, lets alone 10.1

DX10.1 is actually more efficient that DX10. See the Assassin's Creed fiasco.

typo or an Asus hybrid card. DX10.1 is the holdover till DX11 next year I reckon.

^Definitely a typo, but I wouldn't dismiss DX10.1 just yet.

ya dx10.1 is much more efficient then dx10. anyway do u think nvidia could make there cards work with dx10.1 with a simple driver update or it can only be done by changing something in the architecture?

hehe yea i feel you. Apparantly its rumoured that Asus maybe developing a gpu cumbustion v8 engine with straight out exhaust to run all of your favourite games hassle free at max settings in dx10.1. Though i warn u it may cost you at the pump and 99/100% you will grow old with hearing impaired

No, DX10.1 support will require a new architecture.

^ exactly, In other words microsoft screw us once again:) . Tisk Tisk* Rushing their job....

^IIRC it was NVIDIA who requested that Microsoft 'dumb down' DX10.

Many people in the industry figured that 10.1 was just a minuscule improvement that wouldn't really matter. Nvidia basically agreed, hence the reason they didn't even bother with 10.1. Plus the fact that they like being lazy sometimes.

Just because the number is "higher" dosent mean it takes more resources or requires more hardware or whatever you are wanting to call it. 10.1 is a "revision/hotfix/patch/rework" of regular DX10, it kind of fine tunes and softens out some edges you could say.

DX10 hardware can't run DX10.1 stuff though, but DX10.1 can run DX10 stuff as is usually the case with newer hardware.

Actually, as strangestranger pointed out, DX10.1 isn't so much a "revision/hotfix/patch/rework" as it is DX10 in its true form. And it is not insignificant.
