No, look at the water and lighting. You should see some of the other ones. I'm not sure if David has them, but I've seen ones from ATI of the same portion of the taxi outdoors and the lighting and water is INSANE.

Yeah its the water and lighting that hits you, but for instance in that image, the textures are very poor, but when moving, you don't notice it.

You'll find its not a Direct X 10 demo though. Its a Direct X 9 demo for the X1800 card...

Go to the website and watch the demo:

http://www.ati.com/designpartners/me...RadeonX1k.html

Its called Toy Shop.

Yeah, bare in mind that's not a screenshot, just a render of what they think they can achieve, which im sure they can. Remember, you need a DX10 GPU..

As some poeple have told me don't go witha Dx10 GPU its just a lil extra eye candy.

Looking at those screenies i'll be enjoying my eye candy.

And I figure by DX11 or maybe 12 at the lastest DX13 you won't be able to tell a difference. Granted thats maybe 12 years or so away I would think.
