I promise you... Crysis 2 will not be utilizing DX11 even remotely close to its full potential. Crysis 1 was pretty much a DX9 game with DX10 slapped on at the last minute. What do you think Crysis 2 will be like? We all know that Crytek is absolutely amazing and can make the best game engines, but do you really expect for them to adapt a new platform THAT quickly?
For those who don't know..
DirectX11 will give these features:
- Low detailed objects are quickly doubled/tripled/quadrupled in quality and look much more smooth. This is all done on the graphics card hardware, no software involved.
Better Multithreaded (CPU) support
- Game developers are given better tools to make their games more multi-core friendly. Which is a good thing indeed.
-Things like physics and AI are done on the graphics card instead of the processor. Some programs will also be able to utilize this technology.
DirectX11 is impressive - no doubt about that. However, in the scheme of things its going to take quite a while before any game developer even begins to use this stuff.
