Hurray! I now have something for my $800 worth of ATI silicon to do. Anyone know how I can enable tessellation in all my games that I didn't purchase in the future?

LOL tessellation has to be programmed into the game. So unless it supports it, your gonna be out of luck. It will take some time to optimize as well. performance is cut in half with it on for the time being.

Even worse perhaps!
An Intel GMA 945Se! (not the total worst, but still not good enough to run the demo or perhaps in lower than 320x240pix or so resolutions)...

I used to have an old 1MB Stealth3D card. Those were the days...

I have one question.... I decided to run it in DX11 mode for kicks, I figured the worst it would do is to have a fit and need to be reinstalled or restarted... It ran just fine. I am using a 4870 wich I hear has some DX11 features but not all of them? Shouldn't it have failed to run?

I benched my card and got an average of 58FPS its a nice graphics demo :)


Anyway still very cool :)

No it will not fail to work, just not work. I guess when it comest to the DX11 only test sections of the demo, it just runs them in DX10 mode since it is the best your card can do.

Voodoo 5's were if i remember correctly actually more like 2xVoodoo 4's, and in the voodoo/voodoo2 days a GPU was more like 2-3 chips working together, and the voodoo2 12mb cards were more like an 8mb 3D card with an aditional 4mb for TMU's etc

Just got done with the tropic's demo. 5850 and phenom II x4 965. Upped the res to 1920x1200 didn't see it dip below 60fps. Final score: FPS 65.2
Score: 1642

Really beautiful benchmarks. I think DX11's future is bright.
