has released a preview of his DirectX 10
allow the use of DirectX 10 games on platforms other than Microsoft Vista, and
increase hardware compatibility even on Vista, by compiling Geometry Shaders
down to native machine code for execution where hardware isn't capable of
running it. No longer will you have to upgrade your OS and video card(s) to play
the latest games!
The current preview
allows you to run a number of examples from the DirectX
SDK on Windows XP. They're not the greatest thing since sliced bread, but we
want to whet your appetite. He hopes to release builds in the coming months
progressing from demos to fully functional games. He also plan to post on
his blog from time to
with screenshots and videos of what's to come.
