nice find,
well there's something floating around about system requirments created by a mod,
so keep your eyes pilled

DX11 does nothing for games it mearly allows the graphics card to give power to the CPU when it is strugling, so any decent system will never need DX11 unless you are running a very complex series of math through the CPU and even then on most moden PC's 12gb of ram still wouldnt be enough for that to cap out the full CPU.

Ok but if not by dx11 then what will be the improvement aspect that will make games look more realistic than today. Cause I think their graphics look more or less the same for three years or so already. And they say that dx 11 games will look more real so I dont get it.

i hope this game still uses DX9.C or else i'm screwed...
EDIT: I meant: still gives the players the opportunity to run in DX9.C.

I doubt it very much so!
The reason why I think Assassins Creed 2 won't be DX 11 is because there is not one graphics card released on the market with DX 11.

Plus you can notice that ATI are the only company that is releasing DX 10.1 where as Nvidia are still releasing DirectX 10 with Pixel and Vertex shaders at 4.0.

There's hardly a game in the market with DX 10.1 except Tom Clancys HAWX let alone DX 11.
Maybe Assassins Creed 2 might support DirectX 10.1 but I doubt whether it will support DX 11 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

they arnt going to leave DX9 anytime soon as only windows vista and 7 can run DX10 and even then it's hardware dependant.

@BLaZiNgSPEED: DX11 is cuda that nvidia is already running through thier own drivers, DX11 will just take advantage of it more. (why Geforce 8's and above tend to run hotter in windows 7.

Hmmm, interesting. But I am confused cos how comes when I look at the specifications of the Nvidia cards it just says DX 10 with shader models 4.0.

Where as when I look at the latest ATI 4800 series cards I see "supports DirectX 10.1" and "shader model 4.1".

But ofcourse I agree, DX 9 will not be removed not in near future. Cos a large majority of the people still use XP therefore they'll be stuck with DX 9.0.

the change from 4.0 to 4.1 is that minor it wasnt worth the R&D instead Nvidia spent the money on making graphics pluss cards, since all geforce 8 and newer cards now do physics (instead of the CPU/dedicated card) and can drop down to help the CPU.

ATI jumped on DX10.1 to claim they were ahead of nvidia not realising nvidia was finding uses for spare graphics proccessing power, in a quad Sli system you can have say 2 cards doing your graphics, then 2 cards taking proccesses and physics away from the CPU. this is what DX11 is designed to do nvidia is just waiting for windows to support it instead of them having to use driver support.
