Nvidia to offer DirectX 10.1 card?

Better think twice about spending big on a new high-end card...

Details in the news article

Difference between 10.1 and 10 being what ?

I know it`s API, but afaik, we don`t have Dx10.1 in vista, game devs may have 10.1, but relevance to games atm is what ?

Another reson not to buy a high end card is the 55nm die shrink nvidia is planning, this must be the new high end part in Q1'09 I've been reading about.

You lot see the price cuts on the 260/280's? $250/$550 iirc, already on newegg etc. That will have an impact on the upcoming 4870x2 @ $500...

10.1 - I wonder how soon it will be implemented, jeez, dx10 is hardly in use!

This means that the best graphical experience might just be on ATI hardware.
As if that wasn`t bad enough ? I`m not understand where this reporter is feeling it`s bad for the green team that it`s installable on XP ? Freakin h8 reporters like this, the way the article is phrased, it`s all a calamity as far as `the green team` are concerned !?!?!

Not only this, but with the D3 being penciled for release Q4 2k9 - erm... we have another article that says nVidia`s next carnation will have 10.1.. Q4 2k8/Q1 2k9.. so... eh ??!

What he means is, if they dont have a card out by then, then the best graphical experience will be on ATI cards instead of Nvidia. Not only that but they will be sporting Havok instead of PhysX.

Yeah but he`s missing nVidia reportedly bring 10.1 by the end of this year/start of next year, and D3 being released at the end of 2009. Unless he don`t know that and just the day he wrote the thing saw a video of D3 thinking it`s out in weeks.

Im pretty sure he might not have known or either that or hes putting in card delays from Nvidia as a factor. Either way as it stands right now hes correct. The best graphical experience as of right now will be ATI with DX10.1.

U reckon ? I havent got 10.1 only 10, so it wouldn`t really mean anything to me. If my Vista doesn`t have 10.1, the card can`t use it surely ?
