The so-long awaited first person 3D shooter, Half-Life 2, has finally been released. In the nearest future we are going to have a new article devoted to the details and most indepth benchmarking of the whole bunch of graphics accelerators in this new game. However, already today we are ready to offer you a brief report about the major performance achievements of the contemporary graphics products in this game.

Right now these are the data obtained not from our own lab. These results were provided by ATI Technologies, as they are especially proud of their solutions’ performance in this 3D shooter. Below you can see a few most interesting slider from ATI’s presentation, we have just received from ATI’s representatives.

In the nearest future we would be glad to offer you a detailed article about all contemporary graphics cards tests in Half-Life 2, carried out in our own video laboratory.

So, stay tuned!

Sorry not at all believing the performance differential they are showing between the 6800 ultra and the X800XT, just as I don't buy it when you reverse those numbers in some other benchmark.

But oh well.

Either card performs superbly in a system - people ought to be out having fun with whichever they chose...

> Doom3 runs what FP12, FP16?

Doom's shaders are programmed with the fastest flag which will mean they should use FP16 (although it is up to the driver and early drivers used FP32).

These benchmarks show what xbit showed earlier with the preview, ATI runs HL2 better at high resolution/AA settings. In xbit's engine stress test preview at medium settings it was a tie and low settings the nv4x won. I assume this is still the case as they only showed the high resolution settings xbit already showed ATI winning in.

So we've just got marketting here, not news.
