I should point out that DX10 is serously wetinmypants awsome, especaly compared to the current line of APIs wich seem very hacked together in comparison.
In what way?
Unless they've re-written DX10 so that writing code for it isn't so scary, I don't see why it will be substantially better than any of the other DXs in terms of difference.
None of the comparsions I've seen have been espescially compelling (They either just aren't, or the DX9/OGL one is deliberately crapified...).
Admittedly I'm talking out of my ass really as I'm never going to see it on my machine (I still use Win98 FFS! They think I'm going to get Vista???! Ha!), and I'm sure it won't work in Linux (Oh Farenheit!).
But jeez... 250W? Seriously? My *server* uses a 250W PSU!!! (Now, admittedly it *is* a K6-III... but its a K6-III with a terabyte of storage damnit!
But Raster-based rendering sucks anyway.
I WANT A REAL-TIME RAYTRACING CARD DAMNIT!!!!!!!!!!
