Here's some news to rain on the parade of AMD fans with DX9 cards that were hoping to jump on the windows 7 bandwagon with their ole X1900 etc ....

AMD dumps DirectX 9 card support under Windows 7

Speaking of AMD, looks lke theyre gunning for Intel's Gulftown with their own 6 core desktop CPU in Q2 2010 (codenamed Thuban)

Do we really need them ??

To cap off the AMD news - it looks lke the dual 5870 is due at the end of November. It will definitey be the worlds most powerful card until nvidia can scrounge a competing product. Will it break crysis at 1600p maxxed... I think it might.... just
