ATI has announced that it expects to see DirectX 11 GPUs appear in 2009, implying that the company intends to launch its own DX11-compliant cards within the next 12-14 months. The company is currently showcasing a variety of next-generation graphics technologies at the Japanese trade show Ceatec, as well as discussing its upcoming transition to 40nm process technology and the rise of GPGPU.

DirectX 11 is expected to enhance support for both GPGPU functions and multithreading; both capabilities are seen as essential given the advent of multi-core computers and processing environments. Support for hardware tessellation will be an explicit part of the DirectX standard for the first time. To date, ATI's HD 2000, 3000, and 4000 series have all contained a hardware tessellation unit, courtesy of the company's work on the XBox 360 GPU.
