The gold version went out to beta testers today so I woudn't expect to see it til the the end of the month. I am using RC4 and haven't noticed anything special, the speed appears to be exactly the same as DirectX 6.1. I get more speed by overclocking my card then DirectX 7 did.

Hunslo- Is this the actual DX7 or a beta release? I will wait if it's beta but I looked on microsofts site and windows update and it's not there yet.Thanks

Of course it's not the final version.

Hi Hunsow!
Do you have any experience with this file?

I installed it, but didn't do any gaming yet, but no problems so far.

I installed it, and played games for a long time. No problems whatsoever. It did not mention anything about BETA however http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

As Hunsow intimates, DX7 from http://www.nethn.com/download/Dx7core.exe is the final beta. Use DXDiag and you'll find that most of the files are clearly indicated to be beta. I've been using for about a week with several DirectX games with no problems, and no noticeable difference. However, many people are reporting increased performance in Unreal, which I don't play.

The DX7 from the reactorcritical site is the final retail version according to DXDIAG, no BETA files listed. All diag tests fully functional.
