I'm glad you were able to see what I was saying without it sounding like I was being a fanboy or bashing AMD, but it really would be a shame if we don't see games that take advantage of the full range of tessellation.
There was a guy on the AnandTechForums that was a real guru on tessellation that made a lot of really interesting and informative posts on the subject right around the time of when the 6900 was being announced and then eventually launched, and he really made me see the light of how awesome tessellation can be when used to it's full potential. I don't remember his name and I don't have an account over there or else I would just search for tessellation and he would probably pop right up. Some might say i'm an Nvidia fan (I don't think I am but whatever) but I'll tell you that I am definitely a tessellation fan, and right now that kinda makes AMD disappointing in that regard.
But then again I am also a big VRAM fan so it kinda all evens out.
Especially in the case of what will probably be my most played game this year, Skyrim which won't have huge DX11 support but can always make use of VRAM.Edited by juano - 4/13/11 at 7:47pm
