Nvidia to jump on ATI's DirectX 11 bandwagon

Despite the general feeling, Nvidia does care about DirectX 11 and it cares much more than most of you would expect. This green team is spending some serious money to push and drive PC games and make them do better DirectX 10 and now DirectX 11.

Otherwise PC games would look identical to console games, especially like the ones on Xbox and we would be stuck in DirectX 9 eternity.

Nvidia said that DirectX 11 doesn’t matter, and they were repeating it for a good part of late 2009.

Nvidia to show DX 11 Fermi today

As real as it can get. Nvidia will show its DirectX 11 card that we used to call GT300 and that everyone internally calls Fermi. The hardware is real and we will learn much more about it tomorrow. We expect that Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang will demonstrate the card at the GTC keynote that should start at 1.00 PM Pacific time or roughly 10 PM Central European time.

Fermi will concentrate a lot of a computing processing and it should be very fast with DirectX 11 and older games. Fermi has a lot of cache and supports instructions that use to be common only for CPU and many people believe that this is a hybrid between a graphics card and a CPU. This might be the direction that Nvidia will be heading.

ATI's Cypress DX11 might be Radeon HD 5800

According to a rumor posted over at VR-Zone, AMD's upcoming DirectX 11 Cypress lineup might be named as the Radeon HD 5800 series. The exact differences between the so-called HD 5870 and HD 5850 are still unknown but we guess that these will probably have something to do with the cards clocks.

VR-Zone has also posted a full list of features, as well as the rumored ATI HD 5800 series logos. The card has been pictured by Chiphell, and as you know it has dual slot cooling, two DVI, DisplayPort and HDMI outputs.
