Geforce 8800 GT doesn't do DirectX 10.1

Written by Fuad Abazovic

No support for Shader model 4.1


Documents seen by Fudzilla indicates that G92/D8P aka the Geforce 8800 GT is not Shader model 4.1 compatible. It can mean one of two things, one, that Nvidia doesn't want release the information or two, simply that this chip doesn't have support for Shader model 4.1 and DirectX 10.1.


This comes as an interesting surprise as we know that the RV670 aka the Radeon HD 2950 series will support Shader model 4.1 and DirectX 10.1.


We will ask around and try to find out if this is the case, but this would be a big setback for Nvidia, at least when it comes to feature tick boxes on upcoming games.
