Will my directx 9 card support the new directx 10 when it arrives??

  1. Hello,

    I have a 6800GT and I was wondering whether it will become useless when directx 10 arrives or will it still be compatible?

    Simple: no!
    no card so far supports Dx10, the upcoming G80 (GeForce 8) and R600 (Radeon X2000) will support it

    1. no it will not support DX10

    2. most games will still continue to work with DX9 cards because it will take a long time for mainstream gamers to all have DX10 cards. only a handful of games will be exclusive to DX10 when they come out (halo2-PC for example).

    bottom line, I wouldn't worry about it for a while. :)
