This might be a little controversial, but I promise that it's asked in innocence. I'm mainly just curious...

But can Java use DirectX? I know that OpenGL is superior for multiple platforms, but with most consumer graphics cards on Windows, DirectX is much faster (usually). So anyone ever used Java with DirectX? Or is it possible?

DirectX is much faster
There should be < 5% difference in speed between DX and GL; if not, something is wrong. The Nvidia drivers are indistinguishable for the main part, mainly because they both use the same underlying code. (Another obvious reason why writing a further layer to wrap both GL and D3D is a bit like wearing pants outside your trousers to save on laundry bills)
