"Beta testers have so far been very impressed with Windows 7. It's fast and it's stable. One of the reasons is the improved graphics capability in Windows 7. Microsoft seemed hesitant in utilizing the full capabilities of the graphics processor in Windows Vista, which was a real shame. Windows 7 changes all that, and that's what we will be talking about today.
Back in June, we first revealed inside information on the kind of improvement in graphics that you will see in Windows 7. That first article focused on DirectX improvements in Windows 7, which covers everything from Direct 2D to Direct3D 11. This article will refer to the same topics, albeit in much less detail, so be sure to give our in-depth article on Direct3D Improvements In Windows 7 a read.
In this article, we will focus on the Windows 7 graphical desktop, which will also include everything from Aero to 3D gaming and video playback. Although Microsoft has publicly revealed some details on some of these improvements, this article will give you the full details."
