DirectX ® 10 features are available with a DirectX ® 10 compatible graphics card and games designed to take advantage of this new technology. Adding a DirectX ® 10 card to a PC is like turbocharging your gaming experience. Existing games (most of which were written using DirectX ® 9) get world class performance, while unlocking the new generation of gaming graphics with DirectX ® 10 optimized games.

Simply put, DirectX ® is a Windows technology that enables higher performance in graphics and sound when you're playing games or watching video on your PC.

At the core of DirectX ® are its application programming interfaces, or APIs. The APIs act as a kind of bridge for the hardware and the software to "talk" to each other. The DirectX ® APIs gives multimedia applications access to the advanced features of high-performance hardware such as three-dimensional (3-D) graphics acceleration chips and sound cards. They control low- level functions, including two- dimensional (2-D) graphics acceleration; support for input devices such as joysticks, keyboards, and mice; and control of sound mixing and sound output.

Because of DirectX ®, what you experience with your computer is better 3-D graphics and immersive music and audio effects.
