Deus Ex Human Revolution PC to support DirectX 11

The upcoming PC port of Deus Ex Human Evolution is promising to be a great looking game, thanks in part to support for DirectX 11. PC Gamer's web site reports that the PC version of the cyberpunk themed RPG will feature full support for the latest version of Microsoft's graphics API.

The article quotes Jurjen Katsman, the head of the PC port's developer Nixxes Software, as saying the DirectX 11 support will include tessellation which should improve the look of the game's characters. He said, "Using tessellation to improve their look really helps make the world and the characters more believable, which is important in a story-heavy game like Deus Ex: Human Revolution." Tessellation will also be used for some of the game's objects.

Nixxes has rewritten the game's graphics engine to improve performance on PCs, even if they don't support DirectX 11. If you have a gaming PC rig with more than one processor core you should see better performance. A PC with a dual core processor should see a performance boost of up to 70 percent versus a single core based PC.

In addition to graphics improvements and performance, PC games with AMD/ATI based graphics chips will have added support for Eyefinity. That's AMD's branding for its multi-monitor technology. If you have the hardware you will be able to play Deus Ex Human Revolution on up to five monitors running off a single PC.

Earlier this week the PC system requirements for the game were revealed. Deus Ex Human Revolution is currently due for release on August 23 in the US
