I bought a laptop and I was told that installed GPU has problems with DirectX 10 games. I don't have any DirectX 10 games, but I want to check this issue. Is there some tech demo or free game or basically anything that is rendered using DirectX 10 and is free to download?

This question came from our site for passionate videogamers on all platforms.
I suggest you to edit your question adding the laptop/GPU model. In the meanwhile, if it can help, Lord Of The Rings Online (known also as LOTRO) is free to play MMORPG since some months and it implements DirectX 10 features.
Age of Conan is another MMORPG that implement DirectX 10. There is an unlimited trial available and is going to adopt "free to play" model soon.
In addition, it is still available Tropic Benchmark 1.3, from Unigine. It will immediately give you a feedback if your video card manage DirectX 10 and how many FPS it is able to give you.
Here a useful page that list many games with DirectX 10 support.
Besides these, there's also 3DMark Vantage - this benchmark program supports DirectX 10.
