do you have to have vista to use DX10 or no?
A better question would be is it worth it.
ill tell you next week when i get Crysis
well my bros trying to figure out if he should buy another 8800 graphics card for sli or vista for dx10
Go with the graphics card. Vista is still a little too much of a pain in the ass for the benefits of DX10. However, they're coming out with service pack 1 for it soon so that will hopefully fix the RAM and harddrive issues. Also, service pack 3 comes out for XP this spring, so perhaps they'll put DX10 support in.
DX10 is one of the selling points of Vista, so don't expect it in XP ever. As of now, there hasn't been anything out yet that truly takes advantage of DX10. Crysis is suppose to be the first.
There is a group of people trying to port DX10 to XP now, so it might not be official but I think it will happen.
Well sure, it is probably going to happen like that. You could run OS X unofficially on a PC if you wanted to.
Uhg, I hate Mac OS. I've never used anything but windows until this year and I feel pretty lost when I get outside my XP bubble. Even vista caused me a few weeks of pure headaches when I tried to figure out where everything was again. I think I'll dual boot xp and vista once SP1 comes out for vista so I can get used to it.
And to see what the difference is with DX10 for myself.
That would be kinda awesome. Splitting apart the 64-bit and 32-bit support is going to be a pain in the ass, but if it works...I might never buy Vista.
is one link to the project. If you google DX10 for XP, the download is in the top 3.
While looking through a review recently, they were saying that
the games were being written to take advantage of the DX10 cards, even
if it's only XP running.
I don't think the game designers want to try to force the gaming communities hand into switching to vista just yet. Might as well keep writing games for what the majority of gamers are using which is still XP.
Doc, I just realized we're pretty much talking to eachother in like 4 different threads. lol
That happens a lot around here.
Just wait until you meet this guy:
I understand it's difficult for your old eyes to read that small text on your screen, but I was already in this thread -- before you.
And Peyomp knows me... He has previously propositioned me to "elope" to an island together; I, however, declined.
You fucking liar, you wanted my Island loving bad.
