    Default Mtw2 Dx10?

    Hi all,

    Did a search on this but only found hits on folks talking about their new gfx cards......

    So does anyone know if MTW2 is dx10 compliant?

    Also has anyone heard if it is optimized for SLI?

    JediKnight,

    I didnt ask if it would run on a direct X 10 card.

    I asked if it was weritten for or optimized for Direct X 10

    Big difference. Basically if an app is "Written" for DX10 it will be much faster/better with more graphics goodies than an app that was written in DX9 and running on a DX10 capable card.

    Maybe even fast enough or cool enough to justify buying a new graphics card (nudge nudge wink wink say no more)

    dx9 games will run like lightning with a dx10 card. dx10 games are still in the pipeline.

    To answer you Loki, this is still a DX9 game. They're still using SM2 anyway.

    Don't count on it, you lose something like 15% performance through Vista overhead & gain 5-10% through less DX overhead so net performance loss vs. the same card running DX9 on XP.

    But anyway, as noted M2TW is directx9 with shader model 2.

    DX10 is min. shader model 4.
    maybe those guys should be doing something more useful...

    Have any DX 10 games been released yet? I wasn't aware of any.
