DirectX is a Windows thing, so does this effects happen on Mac Hardware? More specifically, Im playing Bioschock wich has DirectX 10 effects for Water movement. Im plying on a 2010 macbook Also, IM curious about EAX X-Fi effects. This was created by Creative, but with Vista, the cards became obsolet. Eax became software, as far my understading on the subject goes. Has integrated audio adopted X-fi or some Eax?
