Nice.. yeah well since both GPU company will be DX11 compatible it's a great idea. And more and more games will be available in DX11 in the future.

I wonder if Crysis 2 will be DX11 when it's released (i think it's autumn 2010 theorically)..

One thing tought. Advance DOF really have a good hit on performance. So maybe doing test with it ON and OFF would give an idea.

As for AAA being in DX11 only, i don't know, but in the DX11 Option menu there's only Tesselation and Advance DOF. Maybe if i select DX9 or 10 in the menu it would be blacked out and back to MSAA? I'll try it tonight..

I bought it on Steam for 49.99$,witch is like 51$CAD right now. I upgraded my connection to 30mbits so it downloaded in like 35-40min max.. :)

OK, no open world like STALKER but still amazing graphics and a thrilling atmosphere in those tunnels.
AI dumb sometimes, waves of monsters sometimes, sh***y weapons (unbalanced at least, that damn pistol is uber weapon here) but it's bearable.
Overall I'm enjoying it.

I might get it tonight, I'm going through fallout 3 right now and I need another game to get my post apocalyptic fix. I love when dling something from steam and I get 1.2mb speeds, it's so sweet.

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)
I would say ditch L4D2 as well. It may be popular, but it's hardly tough on modern graphics cards.
