Nice..Porting existing games to DX10, I may just have to get one now! Well, someday...
All of the developers we have spoken to about DirectX 10 have greeted it with open arms. Many of those developers are working towards either porting an existing game to DirectX 10 or are in the process of creating a new game using the new API and acknowledge that the lower overheads associated with many heavily used functions will allow them to create scenes with more visual complexity and richness. Both AMDâ€™s and NVIDIAâ€™s developer relations teams are working with games developers to ensure that they have the necessary tools to make efficient use of DirectX 10â€™s capabilities.

Now, as for DX9.0L, Remonster , I don't see why or how a DX10 card will take DX9.0L when DX10 is a higher upgrade........AFAIK, you can't install DX8.0 on a DX9 card so it'd be the same for the DX10 not being able to install DX9.0, wouldn't it? Kinda confusing to see how it DX9 will cope with DX10 together.
