Has anyone actually tried this in dx9 yet? If so, what are your thoughts on it?

Naturally screenshots would be appreciated!

I believe this is more relevant

Basically, a it's a newish way of doing lighting, the specifics of which don't really matter. What does matter, is that we can now turn them off, for the almighty fps.

mat_phong 0 on dx8 looks exactly the same as mat_phong 1 (at least to me).

Here's a comparison screenshot. No idea if it actually gives +10 fps:

Possibly, but many use it just because they like the aesthetic (I for one will be, as dx8 gives me flashing textures)

It's not a launch option. mat_phong is a convar, all you need to do is put mat_phong 0 in your fps config, you can put it directly in the console for comparison, though it takes a while to remove all phongs from the map.
