By all means keep crying about having to spend money but I for one am looking forward to it. Is it going to rewrite gaming? No. But it's certainly going to improve it.

My point exactly.. why freak over new tech? People even cry about PhysX support lol...

I assume those people never heard of 3DFX & glide...lol... I'm sure the PC enthusiasts know where I'm going with that comment..

Gee, nVidia slagging off a technology that they haven't yet implemented... who'd thunk it?

That's the name of the game..just like ATI comments about PhysX..though PhysX is what it is lol...(we all know the story) or DX 10.1 cards somebody..

Some companies learned from DX10 debacle others did not... it's not about the value of the new tech. it's about selling a 400$ card that only a handfull of games will be able to use fully. Take into consideration the fact that most people will wait at least a year and get the same support and probably better performance from a revised card (ATI or Nvidia who cares..).

Buy a 8800GTX on release day or wait for DX10 titles to really hit the market & get a GTX 280 on release day..what would have been the better choice?! People could even have skipped DX10 hardware all together.

Why people get caught up in marketing hype is beyond me they should just do their own research just like you did with regards to Hardware tessellation or with Nvidia's sad attempts at hyping DX10.. Education is the key!!

like you said it's 2009 .. even cell phones have Google now lol...

Remember people new tech. is good but it does not mean that you have to buy it ASAP!!!

Bring on DX15…I'll buy the hardware when the time is right…not when the API is released lol..
