Sometime in the next 12 hours, the June 2006 DirectX SDK will be ready for downloading. There are a few changes, but the most important one is that the new version of Direct3D 10, which will work with the Beta 2 version of Windows Vista, is included. In addition, we have created a "Direct3D 10" discussion forum for all your Direct3D 10 questions here: http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowForum.aspx?ForumID=785&SiteID=1 DirectX June 2006 (SDK) http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=1FD20DF1-DEC6-47D0-8BEF-10E266DFDAB8&displaylang=en DirectX June 2006 (Symbol Files) http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=2797EA7A-4A65-4CD2-8A73-18B28B386B48&displaylang=en [Edited by - jollyjeffers on June 8, 2006 9:24:41 PM]

Hey :) Good news.
Does one have to own a DX10-capable video card to start playing with DX10 ? (yeah, I know there are none yet, but I just wanted to know if it was kinda emulated or something ?)

Yes, you can use the reference device, just like you can in D3D9. If you are familiar with it, it is just a software rasterizer that implements all features of the API. It is very slow however, with framerates usually anywhere from 0.05fps to 2fps (depending on scene complexity).

Good to hear about the Beta 2 compatability...now to just install Vista [wink]
