DirectXMath - A First Look

Programmers using DirectX have access to the accompanying library full of routines that support various 3D math calculations. First it was D3DX - auxilliary library tightly coupled with DirectX itself. It's still there, but some time ago Microsoft released a new library called XNA Math. I've written about it here. This library also ships with latest versions of DirectX SDK (which was last updated in Jun 2010), but it is something completely new - a more independent, small, elegant and efficient library, portable between Windows (where it can use SSE2 or old FPU) and Xbox 360.

Now Microsoft comes up with another library called DirectXMath. See the official documentation and introductory blog post for details. As a successor of XNA Math, it looks very similar. Main differences are:

Sounds great? Well, I didn't tell yet how to get it. It's not shipped with DirectX SDK. You need the SDK for Windows 8. They say that:

The library is annotated using SAL2 (rather than the older VS-style or Windows-style annotations), so requires the standalone Windows SDK for Windows 8 Consumer Preview or some additional fixups to use with Visual C++ 2010.

So probably I'm not going to switch to this new library anytime soon :P

Although computers and cell rings are around us, they cannot be a substitute for [url=http://www.ewcoxusa.com]rolex replica[/url] watches. Everytime you are engaged in official meetings or attending some seminars, you are asked to keep your cell rings switched off. In such conditions, your wrist watch comes to the foreground, indicating you to finish your work before the time fleets per second. Thus, same in the case with computers!For example, they have individuals who cannot let go of their sense of style and fashion. This group of people will do whatever it takes if only to maintain their sense of trendiness. Your laptop computer cannot be your companion of every occasion. Your sport watch accompanies you when you are hiking or enjoying swimming. These imitation watches at [url=http://www.irisweb.co.uk]http://www.irisweb.co.uk[/url] are not a matter of personal taste, but can show a respectable gift for your partner or office mate. You cannot compare the cost of a Rolex Replica watch with the million dollar smirk that is imprinted on your chick's cheeks when you gift this watch as a birthday present. They will keep in mind you every second, whenever they looks at the wrist watch.However, people will always come up with ways of coping in the work of such lean times. To lots of, giving up on what they think in is like piercing their soul.
