More and more games are getting Directx 11 support.Games like Crysis 2 and Shogun 2 are getting DX 11 patches,but when will we see games that are fully using DirectX 11 capabilities?
Battlefield 3 will most likely be the flagship DX11 title. The engine was built from the ground up to support DX11.
Yep. I think we will see a lot more in 2-3 years or whenever next gen arrives. Most devs these days just port from console to PC and if the game does have any DX11 support it is just tacked on so they can say they used it. BF3 is the only one off the top of my head built around it.
Most games are now console ports, I think the next DX(be it 12, 13 or whatever) will only really be used when next gen consoles are out. At this point Nvidia and AMD are only using DX as a selling point, i would suggest we just ignore them and stop buying new hardware. They should realise without the software, hardware wont sell either.
2-3 years sounds about right. But I wouldn't hold my breath for DX 11 for next gen. We'll likely be using DX 12/13.
When DirectX becomes programmer friendly instead of engineer friendly.
@ComboBreaker what do you mean ? could you explain more please .
& whenever stalker 2 comes! To bad Epic games don't have the balls to move ahead of consoles & use that updated dx11 engine! Even by then dx12 might be out!
But that doesn't mean that's all DirectX 11 is capable of.
I'll just wait for super super duper MvsC3.
Is DirectX 9.0c programmer friendly?
windows xp has to die, looks like dice is bold enough to help kill it.
I dont know why so many people still have XP it was a GREAT OS in the day but Windows 7 is also great and makes sense to upgrade now.(Vista was a joke lol)
Or people could be waiting for the new Windows 8
Ye I actually bought Windows 7 Ultimate a few months ago, and I intend to keep that OS for at least 8 years. It is a really good one :)
Well if the rumors are true and the Wii HD uses the AMD Trinity which has stock DX11 we will see it in 2-3 more years.
This is the biggest reason I am excited about the new Nintendo console. We should see more advanced multiplats with a more powerful console out on the market.
I honestly couldn't give a F. With games like Bulletstorm showing just how amazing DX9 can still look. As long as the games are good and are well optimised I'm all in. I'd rather that then games wrapped around the gimmicky last though effects.
Crysis launched in 2007 and used DX9 its still one of the best looking games out there, so yea DX 10 and 11 and just marketing bullcrap.
you are aware that Crysis 1 in DX10 mode looks a lot better right? Oh also DX11 has tessellation which is a VERY awesome thing.
more and more equals 2? graphics dont make good games. If anything they can make them worse
Metro 2033 says Hello. Sure if you can't run Metro 2033 with Max settings, Tessellation ON, DOF ON all in DX11 mode then yeah you may not be impressed but for those of us that can, 99% really enjoy the graphics of Metro 2033. Battlefield 3, Forged By Chaos, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, Counter Strike 2
I thought Crysis 2 was a good looking game, to be only Direct X 9. I think Nvidia and AMD should take time off on making new gpu's and let the devs catch up. The 590, a monster card, should be enough to last a few years, if the devs could code for it specifically. But we will get a better card next year, LOL. Manufacturing plants must be going crazy.
dx11 is coming! Crytek announced it! - http://www.mycrysis.com/for...
MT Framework supports DirectX 11.I'd like to see Dragon's Dogma on PC.
With the fast turn around from DX10 to DX11 I don't have high hopes for PC games. DX10 was not fondly adopted by the masses and it seems DX11 is just as slow on the uptake. It is nice to see what Devs are capable of but it still isn't worth upgrading my computer when the games are still being ported/developed for a console.
