by on16 May 2007

Optimized for Lost Planet and DirectX 10


The Lost Planet
is the first DirectX 10 demo, and it can be downloaded from The game is sponsored by Nvidia and of course drivers that are optimized for its hardware. For even better performance and test results Nvidia released a new beta of its Forceware drivers.

Forceware 158.43 is an update only for the GeForce 8 series, while you will have to use the 158.18 driver for the 6/7 series . For those who can only dream of DirectX 10 hardware "Lost Planet" is also available for "old" DirectX 9. The DX 10 version works only on Vista, as there is no Windows XP version of DirectX 10.

The demo and drivers are available on and we plan to try it soon, and maybe even see how two Geforce 8800 Ultra's, the most expensive SLI to date, handles it.
