Crysis 2: Twice as Beautiful

Crysis 2 today got an update, and not just any ‘ol update, it finally got its update for Direct X 11 support. Direct X or (DX11) is a collection of application programming interfaces, or API, that standardizes the way code is handled and written in the Graphics Processing Unit or (GPU).  As a result, users across the globe can run any game on any GPU from any company. DirectX has helped avoid the hardware war that we saw between HD-DVD and Blu-Ray. This is a definite update that people need to have, and if you don’t have a video card that supports DX11 than its time for upgrade. Another feature also added in this update is Tessellation. Tessellation is a big deal because it is a completely scalable system. DirectX 11 games need only provide one set of tessellation instructions, and the GPU will determine how much complexity the scene can handle without degrading the user’s experience. This fine, granular level of control will lead to more detailed scenes for all levels of hardware. In the video below you can see a video on  the improvements DX11 will offer users that update their games.
