DirectX 10 for Windows XP

Since Vista launched, all computer user's excited with DirectX 10, especially computer gamers. But DirectX 10 only for vista. As Microsoft has announced that the DirectX 10 currently support to Windows Vista only. Now days DirectX 10 can used by winxp user too. How ever it's still in development process. But Alpha version has released and it's not the original of DirectX 10 from Microsoft.

However, Cody Brocious the Alky Project leader has released a full preview of DirectX 10 Alky preview compatibility libraries for Microsoft DirectX 10 enabled games. These compatibility libraries allow the use of DirectX 10 games on platforms other than Windows Vista , and increase hardware compatibility even on Vista, by compiling Geometry Shaders down to native machine code for execution where hardware isn’t capable of running it. No reason for gamer to change or upgrade the OS and video card(s) to play the latest games.

Here are some pictures sample to difference’s from DirectX 9 and DirectX 10 on images quality.

If you’re serious computer gamer, i highly recommended you give a try download on Direct10X for windows XP and install it. Then you feel the differences especially on the images rendering and images processing. However, Do it carefully !!!!
