AMD made a big deal this week about revealing what games would be using DirectX11 as a way of promoting their new ATI Radeon chips. One of those games will be S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pirpyat and this week we got the first DirectX11 screenshots from the upcoming first person shooter along with screenshots of the DirectX10 version.
See the difference? Yep, it's hard to see but the enviromental DirectX11 shots have objects generating softer and more realistic shadows than their DirectX10 counterparts. The screenshot you see above is supposed to show a "normal" DirectX10 screenshot (on the left) and the tesselation support for DirectX11 (on the right). Quite frankly the visual difference to our eyes is minimal but perhaps it looks better in a live gameplay demo.
