Hot Hardware recently spent some quality time with a GeForce 8800 GTX card and the new DX10 infused Lost Planet demo from Capcom.
The screenshots above were taken with the DirectX 9 and DirectX 10 versions of the Lost Planet demo running on GeForce 8800 GTX using the latest Windows Vista drivers available from NVIDIA. The game was configured for a resolution of 1280x720, with 8X anti-aliasing and 16X anisotropic filtering enabled. If you flip through the screenshots and compare the two versions, you'll see that visually they don't differ very much at all. The motion blur effect is more pronounced in the DX10 shots and it gives the game a more realistic look that's not conveyed well over still captures. Other than that, those of you with DX9-class video cards really aren't missing out on much, if anything at all with this title.
Check it out over here.
