The Next (Next) Generation Of PC Graphics

Crysis may have been the benchmark for PC graphics in 2007, but as we power on into 2010, it’s looking a little long in the tooth compared to what’s coming in the future.

This demo, for PC benchmarking tool 3DMark, shows what’s possible with new DirectX 11 technology, which should start to see some more widespread use throughout the year as a new generation of graphics cards (and XP users upgrading to Windows 7) take hold of the market.

While it’s a dedicated demo – meaning as far as current games and graphics cards go it’s fantasy – it should give you an idea of the kind of graphics we can expect from PC games in the years to come.
