Here Come The First DirectX 11 Cards

Pity those who only just got on top of Crysis’ recommended specs. Because if word on the street is to be believed, the next next generation of PC hardware is only a few months away.

First off the starting blocks will be ATi’s Radeon HD 5800 series of cards (starting with the HD 5850 and 5870), which should be hitting stores as early as next month. Nvidia’s first line of DX11 cards—the GT300 range—will follow in December.

Suddenly, my 8800 GT doesn’t look so trusty anymore.
