AMD has some cool things coming down the pipeline for their graphics card lineup this month (really, even MORE than you’ve seen in the last 2 months) but some news was worth posting right away.  As you know, the AMD Radeon HD 5000 series of GPUs is the only one that supports DirectX 11 and because of that AMD is hoping DX11 titles become a big selling point before NVIDIA’s upcoming Fermi GPU can gain any ground on that feature.

Well good news for AMD, another major title has been announced with DX11 support due in early 2010 – Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

Bad Company 2 easily becomes the biggest name to announce DX11 support and hopefully there will be some tangible benefits from the new API’s implementation.  DiRT 2 and Stalker: Call of Pripyat are also going to be big sellers on the PC but Bad Company 2 just looks AWESOME.

Depending on WHEN in Q1 2010 this title is actually released, NVIDIA could have Fermi products on the shelves of course and that could possibly negate some of the advantage AMD currently holds.
