5. HL2 preload tomorrow Aug 19, 2004, 01:55 Wookiestick
Sometime during the day of august 19th, Half Life 2 will begin to preload according to this post by Gabe Newell.
It was supposed to come out today but got held off for another day because of everyone sending benchmark stress test results of their computer running the Source engine in CS: Source.
Btw, I got 74 fps average on my stress test-- thats with a Geforce 6800 128 MB with 16 pipelines (not the 12 pipeline vanilla 6800). Thats at 1024x768-- 6x antialiasing and 4x anisotropic with all eye candy on at high detail. Vsync off of course. 61.77 driver set.

Athlon 2700+
Asus a7v8-x mobo
Geforce 6800
512x2 MB DDR 3200
