Is Direct X 9 at end-of-life?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Will all the new games be using Direct X 11 from now on? Will they have backward comparability with Direct X 10?

Your options in most games will be:
1) DX11 Only (Will be rare, they don't exist yet)
2) DX11 or DX9

Most games do not offer a DX10 option anymore, making DX10 more dead than DX9. If you have DX10, you will end up running DX11 games in DX9 mode.
