Default DirectX 10?

Is it included with Vista? I saw nothing about it in the Windows website. When is it comming out? Cause the only reason I am getting Vista is for Direct X 10

Yeah, it comes with Windows Vista, but it won't be used unless you have a DirectX 10 compatible video card.

There is another type of Direct X in Vista though, called Direct X 9 EX. I believe that'll be used with standard Direct x 9 cards.

You won't be able to take the advantage of DX10 unless you get Vista, or if they release Service Pack 3 for XP, which I won't be suprised if they dont.

Microsoft has already stated that DirectX 10 will be Vista exlusive, so don't even bother hoping that Service Pack 3 will bring DirectX 10 capabilities.

For a while, yes. Eventually (years from now) games will be exclusively DirectX 10 as they are now with DirectX 9.

I'm preety sure Windows XP SP3 will have DX10. But for it, there are little, if not any, games that are available. Now, the DX10 games are a big improvement, but you'll need vista and a DX10 compliant card. Not a lot of us has that. It's all in the matter of time.

In a year or two, Windows XP will be like Windows 95/98/ME and eventually, 2000; outdated and support ended.

Windows xp sp3 will not have dx10. Microsoft would be stupid to do that, because if they did, even less people would buy vista.

Like what? DirectX 10 is exclusive to Vista.

LOL, no a 7600 is not DirectX 10 capable. That's why there's so much hype around the 8000 series - they can run DirectX 10. The hardware has to be DirectX 10 capable, you can't just update some software.

That's what? Something about a pastry?

I don't think most laptops out right now will be able to handle Crysis anyway. And soon enough they'll have DirectX 10 video cards in laptops. Laptops aren't really designed for gaming in case you never noticed. And there's more to Vista than DirectX 10, it's not pointless.
