MY god!!! DirectX 10 and SM 4.0!!!!!

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
I was planning on buying the x1900 xt but when i read the review over Windows Vista i was having second thoughts.

Not too soon theres going to be DirectX 10 and SM 4.0.

Would the x1900 xt handles this???? Have you guys seen this:

The new Far Cry game called Crysis.... its look like a CG moive OMG!!!! and it has DX 10( for a fact) and SM 4

Is there a new card coming out with D 10 and SM 4.0? like a x2000 or something? I think having the newer cards like x1900 and 7900 gtx with D 9 and SM 3 was just bs....what are we going to do.....

I think what he's saying is that the majority of ATI cards to come out in the past year or so (since the X800 series) didn't have SM3. ATI finally got around to it with the X1800, but Nvidia had been using SM3 since the 6800. Granted SM3 wasn't really necessary when the X800 series started coming out, but ATI should've been thinking ahead, not building cards with outdated technology. I think that the new ATI cards are amazing, though. The X1900 is a fantastic card.
