The demonstration was not so much about the specific hardware the company plans to introduce later in 2009, but rather to show some of the improvements DX11 brings over its predecessor and to assure us all that it will deliver the technology first.

The first such improvement is the ability of tessellating polygons in real time, so that designers can create higher definition 3D characters or terrain that can be rendered smoothly without requiring much processing power. Tessellation is already supported in the Xbox 360 hardware and some graphics processors, but with the arrival of DirectX 11 we may finally see the technique used in actual games. [Comments...]
