AMD shows off world's first DirectX 11 GPU

AMD demonstrated the world's first DirectX11 GPU today in front of a live audience, stating that AMD will be the first to release a graphics card with a 40nm DirectX11-friendly GPU.

AMD is fully committed to bringing DirectX11 to the market first, something they have stated in a press release, without an official release date. DirectX11 promises to bring smoother graphics, faster Windows 7 experience - meaning Windows 7 will run faster - higher quality games and better performance than anything previously released.

AMD and TSMC gave some demonstrations of the new processing power of the 40nm DirectX11 GPU, in a video with improved detail in character models through tessellation.

That's not all, the game developers also discussed how a few developers will be taking advantage of DirectX11, allowing developers to better use the hardware through the API:
