* Longhorn Graphics Exposed

Digit-Life has news on Microsoft's changes to driver configuration for graphics in Longhorn, and it's a doozy.

Long, too. Grab a soda for while you read this one.

Perhaps, if all goes well and we are lucky, ATI or NVIDIA will manage to implement WGF 2.0 functions already in the next generation (NV5X and the like from ATI) and even publish some demos. But our sad experience with NV3X and Shaders 3.0 shows that it's not easy to forecast final specifications beforehand. It will be most likely only the next generation (NV6X and the like from ATI) that will be truly WGF 2.0 hardware. And considering application development, we may just as well speak of NV7X generation at the end of 2007. That's all right ? operating systems have a long life and they don't enter the market right away, WGF 2.0 will be available only for Longhorn and the next operating systems on its basis.
