DirectX 9, 10, 11

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I was wondering about this but is there really a difference in graphics is a game has DirectX 9, 10 or 11? I just wonder what will the difference be if a game is DirectX 10 or 11. I played alot of DirectX 9 games but I don't know how DirectX 10 or 11 will look like in games.

Not a big difference in most cases.

DX10 and 11 can't even be utilized too well ATM

Dirt 2 in DX9 and 11 look exactly the same, as do a lot of other games.

Crysis 1 looks better in DX10. Guess what? By modding the config files, you can make it look just as good in DX9 as in DX10, even if your GPU is dx10 only.

This.

DX seems to be a marketing name and nothing more at this point. Newer DX11 cards are faster. Though not many of us here have seen a game after 9 just make out jaw drop from a higher DX level.

Not a game, but it's an incredible difference between dx10 due to terrain tesselation. Which Crysis 2 will have.

Ya well a benchmark will always use everything that's available in DX 11. Games so far have not.

Ok well maybe it's too eairly to ask the difference on DirectX 11 but what about difference in games for DirectX 9 and 10?


Btw is it going to be in two years from now when games will all have DirectX 11?

Good break down.

DX 11 or what ever wont become mainstream until the new console come out. Unless there is a resurgence of PC gaming.

Considering that 90% of pc games are ports from console it will be the lone game that even has 10 or 11.
