Rydermark DirectX10 video up

Wed Feb 21 2007, 09:25
THE RYDERMARK benchmarketing software is already wrapped in a lot of controversy. And you can take any side you want.

Today we got a copy of a video of it in action. In fact it's the first video of a DirectX 10 benchmark we know of.

This version of the benchmark is Rydermark's Xtreme Edition and will support DirectX 10. The one we mentioned yesterday, here, is the DirectX 9 version that still works under Vista.

The developer wants to reveal just a few things about it. Shadows are turned off in the dynamic lights in this build. The new build will have this feature turned on but it needs a tweak in the DirectX 10 Vista drivers.

The DirectX 10 version of the benchmark is solid but relies on stable DirectX 10 drivers which is something neither Nvidia nor ATI has.

The final version of the DirectX 10 will have the 128-bit HDR Lighting and it will look even better.

While we were faffing about trying to put the 39MB up, PC Perspective did the job for us and stuck it on Fileshack here. µ
