    Looks awesome. But it wud be a while before we begin to see games that utilize DX11 and by that time ATI 5870 wud become an old news. :p

    Does DX11 offer any real advantage in day to day uses (not gaming)?

    No wonder it was a flop.
    Vista is crap and they restricted DX10 to vista to force people buy their crap.
    It backfired two times ;)


    Where is the difference of tessellation and bump mapping ?

    The problem with Win7 is that it has to run a VM to "play" XP programs.
    Means a huge memory waste (400+mb ?).

    It still only supports 3.5gig memory on 32 bit -> you need 64bit Win 7
    And that probably is not the most compatible one you get use
