Does anyone know if Direct3D 10.1 is in beta? As a side note: I heard there were nvidia driver problems for Direct3D 10 with vista? Have these been fixed. Are people getting hardware acceleration now on Vista with Direct3D 10?

I am not aware of any Beta outside Microsoft.

There are Direct3D 10 driver but they are still somewhat instable.

No, there won't be a beta of 10.1 for quite a while. ATI have still got to get their DX10 hardware out first and nVIDIA still have a fair bit of optimization to do on their DX10 drivers. It'll be at least a year before we see any sign of 10.1 outside of MS I suspect.

Vista runs hardware accelerated on the 8800 just fine - I have one under my desk. The drivers need some work to get performance under D3D9 up to XP levels but they work ok.
