Actually it was, they claimed that the performance would be much better with DX10 which was obviously a lie.

It was actually stated a while back that the Dx10 version would have no graphics quality increase over the Dx9 version, but that the Dx10 version would have a performance boost.

How is it a lie? The game isn't even released yet.

"All this proves is that the GeForce 8800 Ultra kicks ass!"

"Although it would be nice to get some of those increases in framerate with the higher detail. Also, are those shadows (the DX 9 vs DX 10 ones)... are they low detail or high detail?"

"Also, I wouldn't mention that you have the game if you have the game. That means you either pirated it (bad!) or you are some sort of industry insider (we will pester you for scoops)."

I suppose there will always be scepticism when a new version of a successful product appears (such as DirectX) but from what i have seen on these pictures, DX10 delivers and will only get better as time progresses. There is no way it could be worse than DX9 in the long run. As the product matures it will only get better.

Guys, games written under dx9 and just adding the dx10 layer to it does not have any huge gains.

The main point of dx10 is performance, and untill games are written from the ground up for dx10 instead of just adding a dx10 layer to a dx9 game then there will be no real improvements visualy or performance wise.

Try the nvidia Cascades dx10 demo, im pretty sure its true dx10 and it has so much detail and runs so good, its pretty amazing. You can zoom so close to the texture and see just how detailed it really is, then slowly zoom away and you will see just how much detail there really is

Any dx9 written game with added dx10 layer pretty much seems like a marketing gimmick/attention.

I dont think there are any real dx10 games out yet. I beleive the first dx10 title is suposed to be Futuremark Vantage which should come out soon and looks sweet from the pics, although its a benchmark not a game

So basically once games are written for dx10 and people see how great it can be when done right everybody will be moving on to vista
