no to DirectX 8

Postby yellowcab » Sat Nov 30, 2002 1:52 pm

if a game does not make use of the DirectX8, is it correct to say that the game will not utilize the power and performance of the technology in video cards like nvidia Geforce? (e.g. nfinity technology, shading etc)

Yep. I'm pretty sure a DX7 game wouldn't use a lot of the instructions and technologies in new video cards, as it's not in the same generation. Not to say that a better video card would not make a DX7 game look better, just won't make it look as good as DX8..
