Unigine "Heaven" DX11 benchmark

Is Microsoft's newest DirectX API, DX11, worth upgrading to Win7?

DirectX 10 was a failure in my opinion, very few developers implemented it and the graphical improvements over DX9 were somewhere between negligible and barely noticeable.

While this tech demo/becnhmark certainly looks good, Im not sure its really the generational leap in graphical quality that Im looking for. Honestly, the best looking game Ive played this year is Uncharted 2, and thats due to its amazing animation quality and overall film-like presentation, not some tessellation and smoke or particle effects.

As much as technology matters, in the end it all comes down to how you use it.
