Default AMD demos DX11 hardware at QuakeCon 2009

Here they were showing off the upcoming Evergreen graphics chip, first shown at Computex this year. This DX11 hardware is the first GPU to support the technology and should be able in late fall or early winter.

Inside this system is the Evergreen GPU reference card - though we weren't allowed to open up the case to actually SEE the card. I did take a peek at the back though and it was a dual-slot cooled card with a pair of DisplayPort outputs and a single DVI output. The rest of the system was basic AMD-system components on Windows 7 OS.

One of the two available systems, AMD was showing the new Wolfenstein game - though it was only running DX9 code this is an IMPORTANT thing to see as we can tell the GPU is in good working order with a fully functional game, not just SDK demos.
