One in two PCs won't run Windows Vista's Aero Glass

Posted on Sunday, February 12 2006 @ 01:03:20 CET by

ExtremeTech reports that about half of today's PCs won't be able to take advantage of the new Aero Glass 3D interface in Windows Vista because this feature requires a DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics card.
After years of delays and several feature revisions, one of Vista's main selling points is the Aero Glass interface. However, as Peddie notes, users already have the ability to start constructing a PC that should be Vista-ready before the OS even ships. Microsoft also said this week that it would reserve its Halo 2 videogame for Vista.

"When [a] user sees a system running Vista on a PC with integrated graphics, and then sees Vista on a PC with a powerful graphics [board] in it, there will be no discussion -- they will go for the better looking system if they can possibly afford it," Peddie said in a statement.
