I was reading in the new edition of Computer Pilot Magazine about
Microsoft's Flight, in an article entitled, "Is your system ready?" I
decided to visit the site to see what was going on with the newest Flight
Simulator. Numerous screen shots that are quite impressive as are the
videos available there. The screen shot comparison of how fog and clouds
appear looks pretty nice.
The magazine article also has a link for a benchmark program you can run on
your computer, testing DX11. I downloaded and ran the program and on my new
Asus G74SX laptop. Oh My GAWD. The graphics in that benchmark program are
like NOTHING I have ever seen on a computer before. Pressing F3 to toggle
ON & OFF "tessellation" (a word I have never heard of prior to reading the
article) really demonstrates some amazing changes in the graphic object.
