They were going to do something about Tess in 10.5, they didn't, so I hope 10.6 or 10.7 will deal with that.

Yea, something like that, I think it was something about shaders dealing with it better or w/e, I always thought that was a hardware issue but I read something about 10.5 being an upgrade to Tess, which it turned out not to be, because it would've been too late to release as a May driver.

if tessellation optimization is only a software and not a hardware issue then it is big news indeed

Im pretty sure they have already said it was a hardware issue. The drivers will help but I don't think they will be the tessellation cure people want it to be.

Yea, it would've been odd if it was only a software issue. I never really believed it, although I did believe Tess would improve for Ati but not too much.

It's not so much about supporting Tess, since it's already supported, it's about improving the currently, slacky performance 5xxx is coming up with when processing Tess.
