so is DX10.1 supported by this generation of 8800 and 2900 cards?

Sounds like some of the new features wont be supported on the cards, but the replacement for direct sound looks cool.

oh boy, another MS format that had to be patched/changed, just like hdmi output, some games requiring hdd, a heatsink? :P

Isn't it a bit too soon for 10.1? I mean there aren't even 5 DX10 games availabe and we almost haven't seen anything from DX10 on our computers (Crysis is far from release). I hope 10.1 helps with the performance of DX10/9 games on mainstream PCs.

Mk I really hope your right if this new SDK could make us mainstream computer run 10% better in terms of graphic I would be happy. but from the look of it 10.1 I doubt it has anything to do with DX9 computer... I'm still stuck with Ati X1300. the Info I read seems to reduce certain graphic structure of the game, better yet (in game). 10.1 I think is abit to soon really. Well just wait and see.
