The Jury is Still Out on DirectX 10

So the Lost Planet demo benchmark details are out, and most of us seem to be left wondering what the fuss was about. Over at BootDaily, they break it down for us.

Clearly, DirectX 10 has quite a ways to go before it impresses us – even if you can appreciate the added differences the DX10 version brings in the form of motion blur, a bit more detail etc, you do have to ask “Is the performance penalty worth it”? Is a feature really a feature if it drags down the game performance like this? I suppose that’ll be up to each of you to decide but for right now we’re holding out until a better example comes along of what DX10 is supposedly all about.
