Battlefield: Bad Company 2 - Will Utilize DirectX 11

Via PlanetBattlefield comes word from AMD and DICE of DirectX 11 enhancements for the forthcoming PC version of Battlefield: Bad Company 2:
DirectX 11 is a key feature of Windows 7 and is important for two key reasons: it helps consumers experience better performing games and faster computing. To do this, DirectX 11 brings several new features which collectively improve the graphic fidelity of games and 3D applications while also enhancing the ability of the CPU and GPU to work together more efficiently. This in turn will allow end-users to potentially realize significant increases in performance as application developers harness the power of tessellation, multi-threading and compute shader technology, three key new features of DirectX 11.
