I'm not surprised - the DX10 roll out turned into a bit of a fiasco. I think
we were all sucked into this when they showed those early FSX screenshots

Quote from the Horizon forum guru, today,

"Hi,

DX 10 is effectively dead as far as FS is concerned. The next 
incarnation of FS will use the currently being developed DX11 so 
presumably we will all have to upgrade our graphics cards to enjoy the 
full benefit of the new D3D application.

Rod."
