    nVidia GeForce 600 and 700 users fcked up. GeForce don't have full DirectX 11.1 support:bang:. This is only a start, in the future more and more games that are heavily optimized for AMD hardware starts to show.

    I don't really care about dx11.1, it is just a few optimization and it might improve performance by 1% - 5% max, do you really care? I care more about operating system today...

    Nvidia only support Dx11.1 in software don't they (and only certain things), while AMD is the full hardware ?, but even so, i doubt it would make a difference as said above, as the games using it to improve the CPU performance, not the GPU.

    ^ Im not 100% on that mind, so feel free to correct :p

    I can see it being a case where the Nvidia cards perform better, like in BioShock Infinite & Crysis 3.

    This is a big meh for me as long as DX11 works not gonna even worry about the DX11.1 gimmick.

    I guess it will mean that Nvidia users will encounter a CPU bottleneck sooner than AMD users.

    I expect it'll mostly make a difference in the multi-GPU setups.


    If folks are interested in this, you should look up his twitter. There, he has talked before about how DX11.1 will benefit BF4

    I think NVIDIA users will be just fine as AMD, we all need to see how it gonna benefit everyone.

    I think offset/dynamic buffers will only benefit min spec CPU's, can't see how it would improve an i7's performance, for example.....

    Don't really care anyway tbh....:nerd:

    It was frostbite devs that pushed for some of 11.1 feature set so it would be silly if they didn't implement them.

    and yes the features been used work out nvidia cards as well as amd.

    Nvidia support most features level of DX11.1 on software ( API ), not all, as some require hardwares features level.. but this dont mean Dice have decided to use the features who require a support on hardware.. ( where AMD support them all on hardware ). This said, we dont know yet how it can impact the perormance.

    There is something wrong with that news.
    Windows 7 suports DX11.1
    It's DX11.2 that is an exclusive to Windows 8 and Xbox One.

    AMDs cards could get an edge over Nvidias afterall, if this is anything to go by.

    ROFL,

    Oh noes, the world's most overhyped, throw away, cheater plagued game will run better on x hardware (maybe) :rolleyes:

    Nvidia and AMD both play this stupid game and the fact is that the game will run fine on either.

    This is marketing/PR because AMD have a card launch in the not so distant future.

    You can't blame them, Nvidia have done exactly the same thing where big releases are concerned.
