    01. Gareth Thomas has worked for Codemasters almost nine years.

    02. He said the DX11 APU was much better because of:
    - Hardware tessallation
    - Increased level of detail (dynamic ambient occlusion, better HDR lighting)
    - Multi-threading

    03. AMD supplied hardware to Codemasters for Dirt 2 development at a very early state, because they wanted the game to have DX11 support and to be ready by Windows 7 release date.

    04: AMD representatives were onsite to help Codemasters, mainly with driver issues and decision making.

    05. DX11 helped with loading times in Dirt 2 because of the multi threading device support.

    Just noticed this while looking at DH Corsair Hydro H50 review. It's nice to see competitions that aren't limited to US or Canada only as they usually are (since i'm from Europe). Video took ages to buffer but it finally did, so here we go :)

    01. How long has Gareth Thomas worked for Codemasters
    He's working for Codemasters for almost 9 years now.

    02. Which DX API did Gareth say was better - DX9 or DX11?
    DX11 is better because of the easier graphics engine porting and already known tricks/problems from DX10. He also mentions highly enhanced graphics quality later in the video like higher quality HDR effects.

    03. Did AMD supply hardware to Codemasters for Dirt 2 Development?
    YES, AMD supplied DX11 capable hardware at a very early stage of DIRT2 development.

    04: Were AMD onsite to help Codemasters?
    YES, AMD was there to help them out with any possible driver issues and/or any required coding help.

    05. Did DX11 help with loading times in Dirt 2?
    YES, multi-threading improves resources loading using several threads at once, resulting in faster loading times
