  • RANT: DirectX 10 makes everything better!

    Having those effects as DX10-specific is the choice they, the developer, made themselves. To put it bluntly, DirectX as an API has shit to do with low-level implementations. Now, the reason we have been hearing so much about its advantages lately is simply that it's easier to bullet point and market to the masses as a single-feature rather than a set of graphical improvements.

    That is not to say that there is anything wrong about studios riding on the Microsoft marketing train, it's a rational business decision if anything. I just wouldn't expect the big boys of the industry (id, Epic, Valve etc) to do the same, who more than often bypass the obvious and instead associate the advancements in their technology directly with advancements in hardware (CPU, GPU...).
