    DirectX 9 Final may be out on 19th of December!
    Posted on Monday, December 16 @ 00:00:00 CST by Stanley


    Inquirer post : MICROSOFT HAS POSTPONED the launch of DirectX 9 for a week. We said that DirectX 9 would officially be introduced on Thursday 12th but its plans have changed, we have learned.

    The new "final date" is 19th of December, just before Christmas to make many Radeon 9700 and 9500 generations people happy.

    One major application -- 3dmark 2003 is hidden by the nasty cold winds of an NDA that we won't sign.

    :(

    there is also a 222mb download linked from the ATI site to an MS page (check out the new ATI driver thread in news forum) :eek: and a redistributable file around 31 meg linked from warp2search.net front page.
