    01. How long has Gareth Thomas worked for Codemasters
    Technically 8, as he said "almost 9 years." :D
    Damned dedicated I would say. I have only been able to stand looking at the same blokes for 3 at most. Going on the 4th year here so its time to boogy out of this place before it grows on me.

    02. Which DX API did Gareth say was better - DX9 or DX11?
    DX11, he mentioned it was easier specifically because DX10 lead the way and was already familiar with any pitfalls and performance issues. Tessellation, screen space dynamic ambient inclusion, better HDR lighting, shader model 5, and multi-threaded device support altogether made the whole thing better.


    03. Did AMD supply hardware to Codemasters for Dirt 2 Development?
    Yes. AMD came with a "deal" and provided hardware very early on which helped with the feature set and core rendering technologies. Not to mention a little extra in the bank account as well probably. :drool:


    04: Were AMD onsite to help Codemasters?
    Yes. They approached them early and assisted with a staged release with Windows 7 and DX11. They also assisted with driver issues and implementation throughout.

    05. Did DX11 help with loading times in Dirt 2?
    Multi-threaded device support provided faster loading times in DX11.

    Nice, but I do need one. Stuck on an old 3850.

    I actually came here for the mobile driver hack, but I suppose its worth further investigation. :p
