DirectX 10 hardware not yet available

DirectX 10 hardware isn't available yet, meaning that all the cool DX10 game presentations are actually made on current DirectX 9 hardware:
Although ATI makes Xenos, the Xbox 360 graphics chips, it would still have a hard time making a Windows driver for it. Even then, Xenos is not entirely DX10 capable but it is the closest thing available to date.

The Direct X 10 Software Developers Kit can run and emulate just about anything on the existing hardware, so you can demonstrate and check your future games such as Far Cry Crisis on existing X1900 XTX or Geforce 7950 GX2 technology.
More details at The Inquirer.
