"It's no accident that capitalism has brought with it progress, not merely in production but also in knowledge. Egoism and competition are, alas, stronger forces than public spirit and sense of duty."

ATi demos and drivers
Wednesday, November 13, 2002 | Permalink

Microsoft just released DX9 RC0 to public. Following this ATi finally released their demos showing off the Radeon 9700 features which requires DX9. To be able to run them ATi also released a new set of DX9 RC0 compatible drivers. These drivers also contain a new OpenGL driver with full support for GL_ARB_fragment_program, GL_ATI_draw_buffers, WGL_ATI_pixel_format_float and GL_NV_occlusion_query. Guess I'll be even more busy the coming days.

It also turns out these drivers fix a few bugs. The Laplace and Dither demos now work again. The "Shadows that don't suck" demo is still broken though.

Click the headline for the goods.
