DirectX 11 ?

Hey all

I have a GTX 295 (XFX) and have heard that the new 300 series will be DirectX 11 compatible. Does anyone have any info on DirectX 11. I thought Windows 7 had DirectX 10 like vista.

If so, what would be the performance implications?

Thanks

Windows 7 comes with DirectX 11.
To have a look, run: DXDIAG

Thanks, I forgot about the dxdiag.

My second question then was: What are the performance implications?
