and this thread
Because nv already used 1.1 to demonstrate their video card that really doesn't stop them from asking reviewers to use it as well. Sure a reviewer can say whatever they want as to what version they are using but ultimately because 2 different version exist now it shouldn't be used in reviews. And, more then likely ignored by those in the know from those that do use it. So the question remains; Is 2.0 a subset of 1.1 (or just 1.1 with some additions)? Hopefully that question can be answered by them.
It definetily runs better for me, strange, but nice i guess. Of course, i cant run on DX11. QQ
Fixed that for you
Models are tessellated, so are some environments. So it more than often uses tessellation.
From what i've seen the only model to get it is the alien model have you seen any proof that the environments also get it?
You can see how tessellation was also used on environments: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVo_5VCWIzM
lol look at the comments on this link.
I cannot really see any difference in this video!
They really need to make a 1080P vid or something, it is either too small in frame mode or all messed up in Full Screen :shadedshu
Because their is a misconception of tessellation in general. The idea behind it in DX11 is to subdivided surfaces into many smaller triangles to make the surfaces appear smoother. It's a very subtitle effect visually. It is also suppose to fill those surfaces providing no overlaps or gaps.
Now what's interesting is that if you subdivide those surfaces by a factor of x to create a specific GPU load would the differences in IQ become moot. As the IQ normally does not change much (if at all) from the original tessellation appearance. Although one can distort the original image. And, it's just creating a unnecessary GPU load. Tessellated objects in PC games should be used moderately when needed.
Somone really needs to make a game in this setting. I love these type of graphics.
Switchball, Anno 1404, Settlers 7. When games aim not for photo-realism, but for a very clean, sorta-cartoon, look.
Reminds me of the game "Skies of Arcadia" for Dreamcast and Gamecube.
FYI - New BitSquid Stone Giant DX11 demo:
Reminds me of the Rook in Demigod.
