Where did the promised six double DX10 performance go? RRS feed

  • Where did the promised six double DX10 performance go?

    All the DX10 games that I use runs slover in Vista with DX10  than when you run them in xp at the same grafix. Just take a look at Crysis that run 15% - 30% faster in XP with high end machines (modified to give vista only gfx in xp).

    More and more people are going back to xp since that is the only OS that can run the new more demanding games at usable framerates.

  • Hi,

    DirectX 10 features heavily enhanced 3-D graphics-rendering capabilities and helps noticeably empower games to present a new generation of visual effects, and deliver more visual detail per frame than ever before. As Windows Vista supports DirectX 10, so more DirectX 10 effects of Crysis are available on Windows Vista system.

    These effects will take more usage of CPU and graphic chipsets, and so on, this should be the reasons why the speed is lower than running the application without DirectX 10 effects.

    Please also note that the game performance issue is also closely related to hardware, especially the graphic adapter. I’d like to suggest that you update your Graphics adapter’s driver to the latest version to see if it can better support DirectX 10.

    Also, based on my experience, some game manufacturers also provide their recommended hardware configurations. Please also contact EA to see if they have such lists.
