AMD encourage DirectX 10.1 exclusive gaming

If everything comes together for AMD, this means that StarCraft 2, Diablo 3, future World of WarCraft add-ons, and more games from Blizzard will sport DX10.1, something which NVIDIA is unable to handle hardware-wise.

That’s not all though. We recently learned that AMD is looking to team up with more developers, and if there’s one engine that has loved ATI hardware for a long time, it’s the Valve Source engine. ATI is apparently hoping to ensnare Valve as well, and have DX10.1 support with future games like Half-Life 2: Episode 3, Left 4 Dead, Portal 2 and the rest. Knowing how flexible the Source engine is, we wouldn’t be surprised if current games would be patched to further boost performance and additional effects through DX10.1.
