Windows 7: Dx11

Futuremark newsletter issue 125/July 2009

Dear Futuremark readers,

With DirectX 11 and Windows 7 creeping up on us, it looks like game developers are starting to hop on the new-tech bandwagon. Earlier this week, Codemasters announced that they were delaying the PC edition of their highly anticipated off-road racing title, Colin McRae: DiRT 2, so they could take full advantage of Microsoft's next API. It should be very interesting to see what kind of an impact it'll have on the next generation of games and if developers will rush in to support it or if they'll be a little more cautious after the whole DX10 debacle. Either way, I'm intrigued! :)

Anyways, enjoy the news and I'll see you next week!

Vista will get DX11
"We just received new information about DirectX 11. The new API will be delivered with Windows 7. Microsoft's Ben Basaric just told us that Windows 7 will, contrary to the rather vague statement a few days ago, be delivered with DirectX 11. Furthermore DX11 will also come for Windows Vista...
