    Don't sweat it, bro. It's all good. Let's just call it "perspective".

Rendertatsic if you will?
      Not really... Well, yes, you can add more detail and stuff... but don't forget you will always be VideoMemory bound regardless of what DX mode you're in. That being said, you also have virtualized textures in DX10 which will allow for RAM-streaming textures to the videocard. Ass slow but possible to (depending on the scene) maybe double the texture usage if used properly.

      In other words... potentially yes, maybe not, who knows, UT3 will rock... who cares how that happens.

        dx10 = :up:
        Well unless ATI/AMD get their ass in gear, my bet it will be.
        ATI have already failed to launch the new DX10 card.

        I don't think we'll see another UT99, but I certainly tried.

          Good stuff, I read in the latest PCPP that Nvidia is pushing hard to the PC front Some nvidia dude was talking PC at Go3

          Plenty of intel, XFX and Nvidia ads around so things are finally starting to look up

            People also remember them saying that a 6800 ultra would run it at maxed out settings, things change.

            At least it's their engine to modify so the SM4 benefits are possible, recently they've talked about a game that demos to studios the power of UnrealEngine 3 for the next few years meaning up to 2009, by then there should be games that require dx10.

              It isn't 2 weeks but 2 days.

              That's when the NDA's come off. So they should be widely available on Monday.

              We'll see if it's true and how the drivers are.

                Ive heard all kinds of rumours about the new Ati cards like they will be the first to support DX10.1 and that they will have superior performance to nvidia cards because they did the chips for the 360.

                I must admit Ive been getting alittle worried that the AMD thing and the 360 had got in the way of Ati releasing PC cards. Im interested to see how well they perform or if they'll fit into peoples cases lolz

                    That's reassuring. Let's just hope that their stance does not change in the future.

                      All this means is that UT3 will support DX10 - it does NOT mean that DX10 is required! We expect the vast majority of our users will be Windows XP / DX9 users. We will also support Mac and Linux as per usual.

                        Mark, you're going to have to make that a sticky because I can almost guarantee your post will be overlooked by many and there will be much linking/quoting back to your statement

                        Either way, good to hear.

                          This what I've been waiting for! Now that ATI/AMD will enhance (or maybe open-source) their graphics driver, I can't wait to see the Linux-demo of UT3.

                          Fantastic news. Finally a spoken word about UT3 and Linux-support, even though I never doubted you guys!

                            Good to hear that, because I really don't feel like upgrading to Windows Vista until my next build in 2008.

                              Wait, will DX10 mode have more eye candy? Because I refuse to get vista to be able to use DX10.
