Microsoft To Release DirectX 11 With Windows 7 -- Not Shafting Vista Customers


Posted November 22, 2008 - By r_pad

It looks like Microsoft's next version of DirectX -- its suite of gaming APIs -- will be released alongside its next operating system. Voodoo Extreme reports that DirectX 11 is likely to be released with Windows 7. The site claims:

"Microsofts Ben Basaric just told us that Windows 7 will, contrary to the rather vague statement a few days ago, be delivered with DirectX 11. Furthermore DX11 will also come for Windows Vista although Microsoft wouldn't confirm, if this will coincide with the release of Service Pack 2 for Vista."

This is great news for Vista customers and a smart move on Microsoft's part. When DirectX 10 was released with Vista, it was incompatible with Windows XP. Obviously, this pissed off millions of XP gamers. It's nice to see Microsoft taking its head out of a certain orifice and doing right by gamers.
