There is a great article on "ptaylor" blog about this. He is one of the lead for MS Flight Simulator . . . I will see if I can find a link . . . essentially what he says is that it is not actual implementation of DX10.

And actually, so far, I have not been at all impressed with DX10 . . . has done nothing but drop frame rates for me . . . very very little if any additional eye candy.

Actually, to me, the Crysis demo looks better in XP/32-bit/DX9 than it does in Vista/64-bit/DX10. I have no idea why. I think someone posted some screenshots here to prove it.
