DX10 Assassin's Creed Faster Than DX9

PCGH has a quick Q&A with Charles Beauchemin of Ubisoft about how the PC edition of Assassin's Creed will run faster under DirectX 10 than DirectX 9, though both versions will look the same. They discuss why this is the case, though this all applies to Windows Vista, and it is not stated whether Assassin's Creed will run faster under DirectX 10 and Vista than it will under DirectX 9 and Windows XP.

uhhh Crysis actually does look better in DX10. Still runs like fuckpiss, but it does look better.

Only because the "Very High" mode was artificially disabled under DX9. By editing config files you can get it to look exactly the same.

Otherwise, there just isn't big enough of a difference to market Vista. By disabling effects under DX9 in new games, it encourages more people to upgrade to Vista to get them. There may be requirements in the "Games for Windows" program to give a certain number of extra features in the DX10 version, and developers take the easy way out and just disable features in the DX9 version.
