ATI DirectX 10.1 Support & Demo

AMD Works with Leading Developers to Drive High Performance DirectX 10.1 Gaming announces a push by ATI to promote DirectX 10.1 gaming on their hardware, saying "Only AMD graphics offer top-to-bottom DirectX 10.1 support: the ATI Radeon™ HD 3000 series and the new ATI Radeon™ HD 4800 series." AMD/ATI has been working directly with some developers on DirectX 10.1 support for titles such as Battleforge, Stormrise, and Cloud 9, which "all exploit DirectX 10.1 for advanced gaming performance and visual realism." Additionally, for those with appropriate hardware, the ATI Developer Website offers a new ATI Radeon HD 3000-series real-time "Ping Pong" demo, saying: "the demo shows off a new lighting technique known as real-time global illumination, together with a scalable physics simulation optimized for multi-core systems. It's also interactive - move around the room and see how many ping pong balls you can maneuver into the goals!"

current generation cards will not be able to handle games that are released two years from now.

Not trying to be an @ss but the 8800GTX was released back in November 2006 and it will play games released in November 2008 & IMHO in November 2009. The ATI 9700pro I think it was played well for at least 2 years back when I had one.

Despite all that you make a very good comment...200 series cards are not worth the price of admission same for the ATI 4800 series. The new Cards are useless unless you play at 1920x1200 with 4x AA & 16x AF & up.
