DirectX10.1 applications will be backwards compatible with DX10. The only real major change is that it allows developer control of AA so they can increase/decrease it when needed.
Since DirectX10 got rid of "cap bits", you no longer have to worry about a card supporting a feature or not. There will no longer be this "Supports DX9 except SM3.0".
Someone above said the 8-series was 1.5 years old? It launched in November and is only 8 months old. Also, graphic cards go to a new generation every 1.5 years or so for the last 6-7 years.
The X1K series can do HDR, the X series cannot. Nvidia 6 series also cannot do HDR, but it does SM3, which the X series cannot.
