On a first-hand basis we also immediately noticed a difference in graphics quality with a much sharper, cleaner, and dynamic graphics. Sometimes it is definitely hard to tell if you play Company of Heroes zoomed out most of the time as we do but when you zoom in the difference in quality is dramatic. Rocks and other litter cover the landscape, the textures from the ground to the player's faces seems dramatically improved and lighting starts to shine with DX10. It's not night and day all the time but if you've got a high-end system and have been looking for something to show off DirectX10 on then this is the game to do it on. Here are a number of DirectX10 vs DirectX9 screenshots with DX10 on top. Click for a HD, 1920x1080 resolution.
