Still plenty of life left in DX9?

Microsoft may be trumpeting the dawn of DirectX 10 and its incredible impact on the PC gaming experience, but not every developer is ready tojoin the jamboree and adopt the new version of the API just yet.

In fact, according to Codename Panzers developer Stormregion, there's actually still plenty to explore in DirectX 9.

"We think that there are still several untapped opportunities in the previous versions of API so we are focusing on DirectX9 currently," Stormregion's lead designer László Peller told us in an interview on Codename Panzers: Cold War, which will be published soon.
