Intel G965 chipset to support DirectX 10

Posted on Tuesday, March 14 2006 @ 20:27 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
The upcoming G965 chipset from Intel will feature support for DirectX 9 graphics with SM 3.0 and according to Computerbase the chip will also support DirectX 10 after a driver update.

This driver, which includes support for the unified shader model 4.0, will appear as soon as Microsoft launches Windows Vista.

However, it's not sure whether the G965 really supports DirectX 10. It's possible that the instructions are processed by the processor instead of the GPU.
