NVIDIA, Microsoft, Crytek downplay importance of DX 10.1

Posted on Friday, November 16 2007 @ 02:15:22 CET by

AMD is going to market DX 10.1 as one of the important features of its Radeon HD 3800 series graphics cards but other industry players aren't as wild about DX10.1. DailyTech reports not only NVIDIA but also Microsoft and Crytek are downplaying the importance of this new DirectX update:
When asked about the advantages of picking up a DirectX 10 graphics adaptor today, versus waiting for NVIDIA or AMD DirectX 10.1 products, Microsoft's senior global director of Microsoft games on Windows, Kevin Unangst, replied, "DX10.1 is an incremental update that won’t affect any games or gamers in the near future."

Microsoft isn't the only developer downplaying DirectX 10.1. Cevat Yerli, CEO of Crytek, states,"We pride ourselves on being the first to adopt any important newtechnology that can improve our games so you would expect us to getwith DX10.1 right away but we've looked at it and there's just nothingin it important enough to make it needed. So we have no plans to useit at all, not even in the future."
