DX10 Preview?

Recommended Posts

Hi,I will be building my new AMD Phenom X4 system with DX10 compatible gfx card next week hopefully.I tried to search but couldnt find a descriptive answer.What does this DX10 "Preview" mean with SP2?can you toggle it on and off and is it really just a numbed down "test" of DX10 implementation in SP2?thanks

If you have Vista you can turn DX10 preview on or off as you wish.XP is DX9 only.It is dumbed down somewhat; not utilising DX10s full potential but things like VC cockpit shadows are possible.Best Regards, Donald T.:-wave

It means if you enable DX10, don't expect it to be a polished feature.For instance, ATI and Nvidia users are plagued by this,

No signs of anyone wanting to fix it.
