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:

d0m3ris there any reason to use it does it give you better frames?

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.

Makes player models look really nice even with a low res and a shitty graphics config.
