The HD 2600 is indeed a DX10 chip but remember you need Windows Vista.I'm getting this game come Tuesday morning. I just cant decided on PC or Xbox 360 version. I played the 360 demo, which was really good. IGN said that the PC version offers better graphics and performance on DX10 chips--I wonder if this would work well on a new 24" iMac (the 2600 is a DX10 chip, I believe).
lol, now way in hell are you playing Bioshock on an iMac. You'd be hard pressed to find any semi new game that plays properly on that garbage.Can anyone post some iMac (2600 Pro) benchmarks when the demo comes out ?
I would like to know whether the 2600 can handle DX10 games in BootCamp with ease or not...
BioShock is optimized for dual core machines.
For best performance, we recommend a dual core processor and either a Nvidia 8800 or an ATI(R) Radeon(TM) X1950 or 2900XT equivalent card.
It also mentions some known problems with framerate stuttering on NVIDIA cards, which might have affected performance in my test. Some new drivers will be out today which should fix it. Or not. Don't know if it affects the 79xx series.BioShock requires support for Pixel Shader 3.0 or higher to run.
