DarkStalker, neither I have an especial preference for a company. But if you mention Dx 10 and the GeForce 8 series, you know now who fools people a little big more. Yes, I got an 8800 GTX.
Fortunately, it went broken and I change it for a new one of G2 series, GTX 260. It was a pair of months ago, and after seen the GTX 260 / 280 firts ones in G2 and the rest, I decided to wait for a High Gaming GPU in next one generation.
Both companies went to PC Gaming Alliance: Less model per gen, cheaper prices per gen, and easier names.
Forget which gpu you have (I have 2 Nvidia GPUs): Which of this two companies has been more consecuent with what they told in PC Gaming Alliance ?
I am thinking to chage soon one of them, with Dx 11 ones. If I get this new gen or wait another 9 months for 2º Dx 11 GPUs, is only a matter of benchmarks.
And with Dx 10, there are games. Not too much, but NecroVision, Cryostasis, Stromrise, or World in Conflict Soviet Assault
in this year. An Dragon Age Origins
, as Wikipedia says.
Maybe because as in the new Call of Juarez Bound in Bounty
, consoles and Dx 9 only support of this API in consoles, is now a big dead weight for PC Gaming. Battlefield Bad Company 2
supports Dx 10.0, 10.1 and Dx 11 (Dx 9 for sure too). Am I a fool if I hope to see at least Dx 10 in next Battlefield 3
BUT with PhysX? I hope I would not be so wrong.
Well, we all have to wait and see. PC is having soon a new Operative System, New API, new GPUs, more games optimized for 64 Bits O.S. and an exciting 2 or 3 next years with a new perspective in Pc games.
So I am really excited!
