On Half-Life 2 Performance

Valve's Gabe Newell gave a presentation at ATI's Shader Days event in Seattle where he discussed Half-Life 2 performance, Direct X 9, and benchmarks, among other things. Included are some Half-Life 2 benchmarks and some details about the DirectX 9 performance improvements they've achieved. Reports on the proceedings can be found on AnandTech, Beyond3D, Gamers Depot, GameSpot, and The Tech Report. There's also a Gabe Newell Interview on Gamers Depot discussing all this, including why DirectX and not OpenGL.

I still say its partially intentonal, I just refuse to believe a company (ValvE) who is being paied money by a graphics card vendor (ATI) would be honest in this situation.

Um, what proof do you have that valve is getting paid by ATi? None. Point is, when the HL2 benchmark comes out the 30th of September no one will be able to refute what has already been shown.
