Mysterious R600 demo looks like Call of Juarez

A few days ago we reported about a demo that shows the special DirectX 10 effects the R600 will support. Now I came across a forums entry at Beyond 3D which says this demo would look like Call of Juarez, a Western-themed first-person shooter from the Polish game developer Techland. Just out of pure curiosity I looked for some reference material and it turns out to be a correct statement. Just look at the attached screenshots from IGN PC the wooden hut in Fudzillas shot (first picture) looks exactly like the one in the IGN PC shot (second picture). The fence in the tech demo looks exactly like the fence in the other IGN PC screeny. Though the lighting and the details on the stones in front and the steep hill on the far side look different because these are the enhancements made in order to show the beef-up using the DX10 routines. After all, if this is a tech demo it's made of content out of Call of Juarez.

Will an ATI Radeon X1650 Pro 512mb DDR2 play it? I hate it when games are post poned. Like basicly every zelda game(best series ever). Along with basicly all other nintendo games(best game maker ever).

Yes, yes it will. He just wont run it in DX10 more or anywhere near max graphics.

Something as old as a 6600GT will run it, at 800x600 with everything on low. It would probably look worse than far cry, however.

Can't wait to find out how much 8300 and 8500 series cards cost. I might buy one after I get a 320gb SATA2 hard disk.
