When the first DirextX1 1 came out the features were awesome. I had downloaded the same for my system. I had certain doubt with the functioning of DirectX 11 for future needs. It is true that there will much higher upgraded gaming engine evolving with high end system support. So for that does DirectX 11 fits well. For example it is almost a long time pass when games like Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Dirt 2 etc were released. There were some fast phased action games were also released for higher gaming experience. What I want to state that pc gaming is reaching to an great height. Right now what I found that most of the current gaming consoles are supports DirectX 9 mostly. Now Microsoft is going to go for new API for the coming Windows 8. Does in that DirectX 11 will survive or just die.
