Default Put a end to rumors?

Hey well i think this should put a end to all the talk about how Vista will only support a dx10 card and only pci-e so i dont think we have to worry any more. If you go to the bottom it says it will be compatable with Vista. They cant be wrong either because if they lie and say it is, they can easily be sued(sp?)....I duno thought i would show you guys

Yeah, I always knew older cards would be compatable, but cards that are of now and don't contain the extra set of instructions, won't be able to perform with all the visuals on, unlike cards that will.

Theres bound to be budget cards, or some type of driver that may get around this as well though.

But yeah, Microsoft will use a different graphics driver instruction, or something along those lines for the full effect use. Some kind of new Visual Interface.

No its okay. Some people don't know.

But, I don't know how well cards of that spec will be able to run it. Its possible, since theres Viesta drivers on for example the ATI site for ATI cards, that this new interface can somehow be emulated, but cards will always perform better when the feature is internally built in into the hardware.

Just like how my Radeon 9800PRO 128mb cannot internally read Shader Model 3 instructions, they can be emulated. For example HDR is a Shader Model 3 based effect, and Half Life 2 : Lost Coast runs on mine, albeit slowly, with HDR fully enabled in the drivers.

I've ran Vista Beta using 128MB of RAM and an old GeForce 2 PCI video card at school.

No,unless you have another HD or a partition you would have to reformat your computer, if you want the beta im sure they have it at the microsft website..
