GTX 780 and DirectX 11.1

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I am sure there are some other posts about this, but I couldn't find one that regarded my questions.

I ordered the EVGA GTX 780 SC ACX a month ago, and recently sent it back and ordered the EVGA 780 Classified instead.
But I am wondering about the 700 series and DirectX 11.1. According to this post,
http://www.techpowerup.com/187812/battlefield-4-running-directx-11-1-could-give-radeon-hd-7000-an-edge.html
the NVIDIA cards doesn't fully support DirectX 11.1.

Does this really mean that the AMD cards will have more graphic options and give AMD an edge as they say?
The Classified is alot of money here in Norway and I want a card that performs very good for the money I am paying for it.

NVIDIA also commented on this, and I found this.

After a discussion on a German a website, NVIDIA confirmed that the Geforce 600 series does not fully support DirectX 11.1 aka is 100% compatible. Well, it doesn't fully support the API. The GTX 680 supports DirectX 11.1 with hardware API eature level 11.0, including all optional features.

Now that does include a number of features useful for game developers such as ...

Reply directly from NVIDIA:

Partial constant buffer updates
Logic operations in the Output Merger
16bpp rendering
UAV-only rendering
Partial clears
Large constant buffers

We did not enable four non-gaming features in Hardware in Kepler (for 11_1):

Target-Independent Rasterization (2D rendering only)
16xMSAA Rasterization (2D rendering only)
Orthogonal Line Rendering Mode
UAV in non-pixel-shader stages


I am not sure how much this have to say, but I am a little unsure if I should consider getting AMD instead, but I also like the GTX 780 and Advanced PhysX from NVIDIA.


What do u guys think? smile.gif

I think you should get what you want and not worry about it. both camps are going to fully support what the developers put in the games. Dont let some article sway you on what you want to spend your hard earned money on.

This.

The gtx 780 isn't DX11.1 certified or whatever because of some 2d things that have nothing to do with gaming.

Well that was kinda what I was thinking smile.gif I think I will just stay with the ordered Classified, AMD might be faster than a stock 780 but the Classified overclocks well, so it might beat the 9970 tongue.gif

Well firstly 11.1 is only supported on Win8 and there isnt any were near enough pc gamers willing to transition to win8 so devs dont use it or havnt started to. They have only just managed to get 11 working to an ok standard so why increase the amount of bug fixing and time wasting to include another API thats only supported on one OS
