The problem currently is that no games are truly dx10. All they are doing is basically dx9 with shader model 4 added on. A true dx10 title will have to be written from scratch with zero dx9 compatibility. The main feature, the one we should all be screaming for, of dx10 is the geometry shader. Nonexistent in dx9. The biggest benefit is that it will allow all the shaders to be applied in a single pass, not 6-8 passes like current dx games. Imagine the performance.
