ahaha.. this is hilarious.. nvidia is so pathetically behind they have to keep spewing out same info again and again.. funny enough, none of them have anything to do with Windows 7.. and directx 11? hah.. their ability to do DX11 is still MONTHS away

stereoscopic 3d? nobody cares

physx? gonna die

SLI? Been around a while and nothing to do with win7

this is just pure PR bullshit.. I feel sorry for the idiot who goes to win7 thinking he'll get something from dx11 or directcompute from his GT200 or lower

If ATI ever bothered to support HWC and send us their PR's we will post them as well


I don't go hunting for marketing PR's but if they are sent to me and they are semi relevant, they will be posted.

Seems like the ATI PR mindlessness is rubbing of on everyone.

So? The ability of the GAMES THEMSELVES to do DX11 is still months away.

Don't insult it until you have tried it. It's the only way I game these days unless a game doesn't support it.

No. It is still one of the most used (because it is one of the easiest to program for) physics APIs on consoles. That alone means it will live a LONG time.

Say what? All G80 and higher GPUs support DirectCompute and OpenCL. What they don't support is DirectCompute 11 but the number of apps that will use the 11-series of DC will be extremely small due to companies wanting broad compatibility.


Gotta love the misinformation people have been getting....

How does PhysX being used on consoles mean anything for Win7 though? Its still going to die though.. proprietary crap like this is not going to survive in the face of an open standard.. its Glide all over again

Dirt 2 will be out before Fermi is out.. as will battleforge.. so nvidia is not ready for DX11 despite their claims

And stereoscopic might be cool, as was the first generation of 3d when it came out, but I don't want to game on a smaller monitor (I think 22 is the highest 120hz so far? ), nor do I want to pay that kind of money for something which is only realized with specific support of game and has no other benefit outside of it

Glide? Glide != PhysX.

Glide is more like Direct3D over anything else.

I'd say Nvidia is in no rush to jump on the DX11 bandwagon after the epic fail DX10 was and personally it would be a good idea.

Clearly its not a rendering API, I'm saying Glide was a proprietary standard in the face of open ones like D3D an OpenGL and look what happened to it

DX11 has already been demonstrated to be a better revision.. better graphics AND better performance, unlike DX10
