Can anyone confirm if it's true via a patch? Fully compatible with Vista also?
All you need to do is install the latest DirectX redistribution. Vista fully supports DX11 after updating.
And sorry but wow, right after remembering that I went to run updates and forgot I'm running windows 7....
It wouldn't surprise me if some of them will even run on Xp.
Oh I thought it was a specific file that needed to be installed. I didn't realise it was the DirectX redistribution. Where is this file?
You need the "platform update" as well as the August DX redist, which is now on Windows Update
the "true" DX11 update for vista will roll out soon enough legitimately anyway.
at the moment (last i checked, a month or so ago) you need a manual install of a windows update (the platform update, i dont know where to find it) and the latest directX redist available here or here
Does any one have a list of cards that support DX 11 ? I have a 4870 HD.
currently available(will be shipped the week you ordered )
HD 5970(dual 5870 with 5850 clocks)
listed in Catalist 9.12 beta (theoretically these will be available by Christmas)
and RV810 based cards
nVidia(i don't thing we'll be seeing these till at least mid January)
The HD4870 like all HD3xx0/4xx0 cards is DirectX 10.1 which is still better than 10.0(it has less features disabled and slightly more fps)
Do I click on "Latest DirectX Downloads for Gamers"? or "All DirectX downloads"?
if you got a windows update that said platform update than your already good.
to check DX version
hit (windows key) + R or go to Start>run and type "dxdiag"
Thats nice to know guys
as long as you have a DX10 card you should be in the safe zone, DX11 adds features to DX10 cards
but if you have a DX9 card . . . . then . . . . . lol
