More on the H-L2 Date

The Neowin Winhec 2004 Blog (thanks Wookiestick) reports on the presentation of Half-Life 2 at an ATI bash, offering more support for the theory that Summer 2004 is the new September 30:

The demo was very impressive but was not a touch on the demo by Gabe Newell from Valve. This stole the whole keynote to actually see some new footage from Half Life 2. Again we got the whole video which is approximately 3 minutes long and as soon as we find somewhere with firewire well get it on here asap because its one to watch! Gabe claimed the X800 is 40% faster than the GeForce 6800 for Half Life 2 and confirmed that well see Half Life 2 this summer.

94. 9800XT vs. Nvidia May 5, 2004, 22:51 Zephalephelah
I'm selling my ATI card. That fucking thing fucked my system up. Now when the card is cold, it's all stupid, reboots the computer, etc.

Once it is warm, it's a nice card.

Oh well, back to NVidia. The top cards are so close that it really doesn't matter. The only reason I went with ATI last time is because it didn't have a vacuum cleaner leaf blower fan.

In my opinion, ATI has always been behind. Because it's the only card I've ever owned that has been such a pain the fucking ass. So back to good old trusty Nvidia, the card brand that has been stable for me at every upgrade, least problems with games, and excellent performance.

Like someone is going to visually see a few percent difference anyway. You can measure it with a machine, but you certainly can't see it. Besides, both companies have proven themselves to be utterly unreliable in how they focus on benchmarking. I'm just going to get the NV40 card and stop worrying about whether I can get my E-penis to be another Millimeter longer or not.
