I thought AAA was only available when DX11 was enabled, no?

Played a bit last night, only a few minutes. They could probably use this game to benchmark new video cards you know, that and it looks amazing! I love the refugee camps and how many people they have in there, feels realistic

AvP DX11
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 DX11

AvP is probably the worst game ever released in the past 5 years... please don't do it! :(

I don't agree. I quite enjoy playing it but it was hyped too much. Plus, it's a tough game graphically so it will be in there one way or another. We are moving away from benching DX9 games unless they are extremely popular which means the removal of Batman: AA, Borderlands and DiRT 2 DX9. The list looks like this so far:

AvP DX11
BF: BC2 DX11
DiRT 2 DX11
Dragon Age: Origins DX9
Far Cry 2 DX9
Far Cry 2 DX10
Metro 2033 DX11 (possibility)
Left 4 Dead 2 DX9
Unnamed DX11 benchmark tool (to be released next week)

List looks good, Dragon Age not sure why though, graphic intensive? Game looks weak on the graphics side. I take it you're no fan of Crysis? Or just tired of it cause everyone uses it to benchmark with it?

Crysis is old and still horribly optimized. Dragon: Age is there because it remains one of the most popular PC games right now that doesn't include the names "Sims" or "World of Warcraft".
