What happened to DX9L I thought it was supposed to bring some of the DX10 features to XP.
I might not remember correctly but I thought I was supposed to be the alternative to upgrading to windows Vespa (Vista). Again it would not bring all the so called advantages of DX10 but enough for gamers not to notice any big graphical diff. in games.
Besides, Vista runs absolutely wonderfully well with so-called "DX9" 3d cards--....
Games running 10% slower on Vista is no my idea of wonderfull?!?! I'm being nice by saying 10%
I just realized that I probably insulted the vespa by calling Vista that way...it's just reference to the poor performance in games.
