I very much doubt on any forum the majority would have a dx11 card, people like me who have no valid upgrade are in no hurry.

So much for everybody having DX11! :lol:  I wouldnt call it mainstream until more gamea actually use it, and until all the G80/2xx and 4xxx waiters buy. That looks to be right about now with 6xxx, maybe lasting into the next 2 gens next year.

DX11 is not a reason alone to change a high end last generation rig.
A year old gtx 275/285 sli rig, a gtx 295, 4870x2 owners might or might not be motivated to upgrade ? First generation dx11 cards might be dwarfed by new architectures ? Who knows ?

Dirt2 is noted as being hard pressed to notice the differences dx 9/11
I've read that people notice improvements with Battlefield BC2, don't know, don't play that game.
Lost Planet 2 , takes a HUGE hit in dx11, and initial reviews mention its hard to notice the differences in actual game scenery dx9/11.

IMO, the dx11 importance was argued much louder when only one company had the feature.
The facts are still the same though, you play dirt2 in dx9 if you can't get the game performance in dx11. Same with any game.

Good idea.

Lucky number 7 at DX11 vote. 5770. But i play DX9 games also.

Most owners have DX10-10.1 cards because it is not worth to upgrade to DX11 but for me it was from a HD2600XT. That's a 3 generations leap. By next year the DX11 users will increase but lots will still be using DX10-DX10.1 cards.

Using 5850.


:non: 

Most of us have Core 2 systems with a 9/ or 4000 series GPU. Think. Not everyone has the money to upgrade every year.

Plus, someone may have a GTX275/285 or a HD 4890/HD 4870 X2 GPU, so they might not be motivated to upgrade.

I upgraded to a HD 4870 1GB from a 7800GTX 256 MB.. That's a 9 tier upgrade as per Tom's graphic card hierarchy card.. So my next purchase will be when i can get and/or need a similar performance boost up.. The directx version does not matter to me much..

To be honest if you have a card that can run all games at high settings. Then theres not point to upgrade just so you can look at a wall with bumps and stuff. Thats why Im not upgrading until I really have to like most gamers and a large ammount of enthusiasts.

The steam surverys show that 56.36% Of users use DirectX 10 and 5.6%



Also I think we should sticky this. Its a great discussion.

I have a feeling Windows Vista users are added in with dx11/10 users that are using Windows 7. Surprisingly, there's still a good number of people using windows Vista since it allows dx10/.1/11
I tried using Vista on my older computer before, got around 40fps in CSS with high settings and 1280x1024...oh how terrible.
I hardly look into Steam's tech details, they seem a bit off to me at times. Also, a friend of mine went and told me Steam classed his cpu at 1GHz, and a single core for some reason.

Mario Brothers/ Super Marios Bros....it was a jibe! :D 

Seriously, I play AvP, BFBC2, COD4:MW2, Crysis, etc all on max (and DX11 wherever possible). I agree, there IS a difference in DX10 and 11....but in all honesty, it ain't all that!

Really did love my MSI GTS250 Twin Frozr (1gb) though!

Sure, why not?

I upgraded from a X1900XT because that card died last year. It lasted me a good 3 years, so I guess it was time to buy a new card. It was a huge performance increase and I bought my HD 5850 before prices started to skyrocket into the $300+ range.

I don't play that many games anymore. The only DX10 titles I've played are Crysis and Crysis - Warhead. I played those games with my old X1900XT; I didn't get the itch to play them after getting my HD 5850. The current games I am playing are only DX9 games which are Fallout 3, Galactic Civilization II, and X3 - Terran Conflict.

The next game I'm buying is Fallout: New Vegas which is a DX9 title. It's the 1st game I will be buying since I bought FO3 back in Oct / Nov 2008 on it's release date.

The point is, you have a high-end dx11 capable card, but you still play games using Windows XP.
My question is, you downgrade Vista to XP? As well, a dx9 card running games using dx10?

I've been running with Win XP Pro since 2001.

Crysis and Crysis: Warhead were both played in DX9 mode since DX10 / DX11 is not supported by Win XP.

Vista has been running fine for me, don't know where the bad performance comes into it. Maybe I am just not picky when it comes to a few fps.

Also, I still have a crossfired x1900 system, system ram is playing up as it stopped working for my parents who I gave it to. Will have to sort it someday see if it still works.

Fix'd, and good for you. You try Windows 7 on the same computer?
The reason you're not finding any slowdowns or problems are because of having 8gb of ram. Try and run 2gb, or 4gb on Vista without the 4870x2.

I did run windows 7 on this computer for a while back before it released and didn't notice a difference, I have also just installed it on my flash drive and so could test out a clean install but really see no need. The problem is that I doubt I could visibly notice anu difference if there was one.

I can't say vista has also been a major problem on my notebook, which has a dual core usually at 1.6ghz with 4gb of ram and an intel integrated gpu, running on low power mode is fine.

I am running direct x 11 with my 5770 but how do you run direct x 10 in some games, (which i would imagine you gain some frames per second) in dx 11 games such as BFBC2? I honestly see very little differences except in benchmarks, like heavan where you can pinpoint the tesselation etc. I would be happier with a very powerful dx10 card right now rather than a 5770 personally so i can't wait to get another for crossfire soon or if not upgrade to a 5870 or 6000 series beause the damn thing is not powerful enough to do 1080p on its own.

BFBC2 actually supports all 3, 9,10,11 . Its about the only game that does this that I know of. Others support dx11 and fall back to dx9, support dx10 , fall back to dx9 -Crysis.
You can usually exploit this in config. profiles.
No tech site has ever broke down every aspect of BFBC2 and the difference in the 3 .exe's if there are, it would be a massive undertaking to examine the performance/IQ relations and its value.
