    Microsoft finally decided to talk about DirectX and its next tenth generation. DirectX 10 will have completely new and faster dynamic link libraries (DLLs) and is supposed to run much faster. Microsoft will enable support for DX 9 or lower games through a software layer, meaning it might run slower. DirectX 10 will have support for Shader Model 4.0. It will come with Longhorn, but the expectations are that the Shader Model 4.0 might come even before the new Windows.
