Vista gaming will be 10 to 15 per cent slower than XP

Microsoft is telling its selected gaming industry chaps that gaming under Vista will be ten to fifteen per cent slower than XP. It is because you have to load the 3D desktop all the time. It is ironic, as the same company tells the developers that the same API can do certain things up to four times faster

Hmm, something doesn't sound right here. They say it's going to be slower, but on the other hand, everywhere you see reports that directX10 will be a lot faster (even in DX9 games). So either there is a catch somewhere, or one of these statements is a bit off.
