...
I watched Diablo III Developer Panels through live stream from WWI and DIII Project Director responded (in a Q&A) to a question regarding DX support. He said they won't be supporting neither DX9 nor DX10 (i guess that excludes 10.1 as well), but will use their custom graphical API.

So if u have any official proof of what u r saying, would u mind sharing it with us?

I think Ill keep my 88's till something better comes around
If its anything close to native DX10.1,(which Blizzard has the time and money to be able to pull off) the ATI cards should be able to "pump out" frames faster in DX10.1 than in DX9.

And in case you hadn't seen any of the new reviews, the 4800s take less of a performance hit from AA/AF than the 8 series and GTX2 series.

It doesn't really matter though, AA was never really that important for me, I'd rather have cool DX10.1 effects with no AA than the same old DX9 effects we've had for 6 years now only with slightly cleaner edges...

Well, nowyn, I just watched the Q&A segment and the special effects segment of the D3 developer panels and they don't say anything about DirectX support... So i don't know *** you're talking about, your gonna have to give me a link.


I watched these two:

greed? why would you update that quickly in the first place. There is no greed that was just a refresh of a product.

I don't know if this is off topic but nVidia does have much better anti-aliasing technology than ATI's SMOOTHVISION. You really get for what you pay for here.

And how would you know man? you have a 6600gt, 512megabytes of RAM, and 2.0ghz Pentium 4.

When have you even seen anti-aliasing?


(Sorry for the flames, but all the Image quality reviews I've seen show ATI winning on just about every front.)

After reading a few reviews on the 4800 series, it seems that ATI has dramatically improved upon its AA technology from the 3800 series and below.

Google it. its not hard.
I still don't beleive it untill I see good benchmarks and a few more of my friends get these cards

I use 4-8x AA on a 24" screen running 1920x1200 so these things are crucial for me. "seeing no difference" is a moot point. your opinion does not matter in weather or not it performs using AA or not, because people like me will still use it.

Your the dumbass that upgraded from an 8800 GT to a 9800GTX with the exact same memory and slightly tweaked core...... Didn't you see that the 9800's were about the same as 8800 series... Differences lie in drivers and "revisions"
