ATI has unveiled its first DirectX 10 software development kit, but the company didn't provide its partners with DirectX 10 compliant hardware.
ATI said it was giving developers and artists the tools “to fully leverage the power of unified shaders and the graphics processing unit (GPU)” and a preview the possibilities of the future Microsoft DirectX 10.

“With forward looking techniques like shadow volume extrusion and streaming out of animation data, the SDK has more than a dozen new samples of what could be possible with DirectX 10 and empowers developers to start creating the kind of breakthrough content the industry saw at the advent of DirectX 9,” a statement by ATI reads.
