We have some good news for you. DirectX 11 games should start appearing sooner and in much bigger numbers than DirectX 10 games back when DX10 was introduced.
Let us remind you, when Microsoft went to DirectX 10 it insisted on an upgrade to Vista and since this operating system was not really popular, not many people rushed to make this upgrade. The second weak point of Vista was that it didn't run on legacy and still kicking Windows XP and last but certainly not least was the fact that DirectX 10 games didn't look much different than DirectX 9 games. This was also boosted by the fact that Crisys ended up being quite slow on DirectX 10 and Vista.
Though Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 maker Infinity Ward recently told us that "PC [multiplayer] will be the same as it always was," the company has now revealed that the war-torn shooter will not make use of community-run dedicated servers. "We've been building up this system on the backend called IW Net, to allow matchmaking for our PC users just like you have on the console," Infinity Ward community manager Robert 'fourzerotwo' Bowling explained on podcast BASH 123.
Nvidia (NSDQ:NVDA)'s flirtation with streaming, real-time photo-realistic rendering may have entered the "officially dating" stage with Tuesday's launch of the graphics chip maker's RealityServer 3.0 for cloud-based visual computing applications.

After a lengthy webcast on BASHandSlash Infinity Ward's community manager, Robert Bowling, confirmed that dedicated servers for the PC community will be dropped in favour of IWNet, a matchmaking service provided by Infinity Ward. The announcement was met with disappointment as BASHandSLASH (via Kotaku) moderators told Bowling that the current PC communities are "structured in such a way that it relied on having dedicated servers," meaning there is no interest in changing the way matchmaking works and that the community are happy with its current set up.
Adding full cooperative play to the main storyline in Activision's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 would have "ruined the experience," Infinity Ward community manager Robert Bowling says in an interview with games site VG247. Bowling says before developers created Spec Ops, the co-op mode with separate missions, the game allowed for multiple players to tackle the campaign together.
We've learned from industry sources that AMD / ATI has already won the GPU deal for the next generation XboX console. It looks like Microsoft was happy with first Xeons GPU and it wants to continue using the same, especially since the new ATI GPU should keep the compatibility with legacy games.
The consoles refresh was supposed to happen in 2010 but due to the recession both Microsoft and Sony have decided to push its plans for 2012 and keep the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 alive for more than it was originally planned.
