Rumour has it that Microsoft will officially announce DirectX 11 at the Gamefest 2008 game conference which takes place on July 22-23 in Seattle, Washington.
The big feature of DirectX 11 is Tessellation/Displacement while we also heard that Multithreaded Rendering and Compute Shaders are part of it. DirectX 11 also brings Shader model 5.0 but we don’t know many details about it.

It looks like DirectX 11 will stick to rasterization as there is no any mentioning of Ray tracing support.
