But ATi hasn't been as negative as nVidia has regarding DX11...

Good for them, but it's still same old game that companies in all fields play..nothing new there. I do not gauge the level of BS to determine who is right I just call the BS.

Nvidia can accuse ATI of eating babies.. who cares ..the point is that all this is BS.. it's what big companies like that do.. don't get caught up in the hype, think for yourselves..their are plenty of hypocrites on all sides.

All this stuff has been said & done back when GLIDE was a 3Dfx only API...

As a canuck I'm an ATI guy but I sure do not fall for all the blah blah blah.. I d@mn well know that if the roles where reversed they would do the exact same thing..cause business is business..

My point exactly.. why freak over new tech? People even cry about PhysX support lol...
That's more to do with the politics behind it, not the technology itself.

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..
But ATi hasn't been as negative as nVidia has regarding DX11. nVidia even accused ATi of hurting gamers because of games like DiRT2 being pushed back to support it and because consoles only support DX9. Sour grapes indeed. The big difference is that PhysX is nVidia exclusive, whereas nVidia will be supporting DX11 - that's what makes the criticism so hypocritical.

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..

Nvidia even said it's to early to jump on the DX11 bandwagon lol! ( & they make video cards lol)
Gee, nVidia slagging off a technology that they haven't yet implemented... who'd thunk it? They were happy to hype DX10 - a technology that offered virtually nothing visually - and yet DX11 is unnecessary? Hardware tessellation and compute shaders are a huge leap forward.

The STALKER picture is an interesting example because, finally, DX11 allows for round surfaces to be round, without a huge hit on performance. I mean, it's 2009 - why has it taken this long for that to happen? Check out here to show what tessellation is about: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVo_5VCWIzM

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.

"I've abandoned the PC as a gaming platform because I feel it's getting too expensive."

Marketing departments love people like that...shows how marketing hype can work on people who do not do research & fall for every flashy headline.

I guess that's why we still have infomercials..

Same thing happened with DX10 but then people who did their research realized that titles can look almost identical in DX9 (add crysys comments..)...D11 STALKER screenshots pretty much tells the story about DX11. Nvidia even said it's to early to jump on the DX11 bandwagon lol! ( & they make video cards lol)

I guess this is PC gaming natural selection at work..

Right on the costs, so little in the short term to warrant this or a number of titles. Id have to upgrade a number of things to make it viable, knowing how slowly software moves on the hardware:

I wouldn't consider a dx11 card for atleast a year.

Good game though, bought it for the ps3. With the ps3 being at it's pinicle atm i don't feel like im losing out any.

Things used to be different when in the ps1/2 generation when pc had lead development, pc versions just were 10* better.. the original colin mac certainly was, had the ps1 and the pc version, gfx, frames ect... were far and beyond the ps1 version, in the case of dirt 2 that won't be the case.

What do DirectX 11 video cards cost nowadays? $300-$400? You also need a decent PC with a bit of horsepower plus screen. Oh yeah and you'll need at least Vista.

At the end of the day you'll be spending around $1000 for the privilege of playing this game.

I've abandoned the PC as a gaming platform because I feel it's getting too expensive.

I own an XBox and I can pick up this game and play it without having to bother with new video cards, operating systens, drivers, bla bla.

Yes the Xbox version will not look quite as good. But really, I don't see the difference anymore. 3D Graphics have hit a visual plateau for quite some time now.
